Lamborghini Gallardo LP560 Spider
The Spider is no mere coupe that’s been sent to the chop shop. A considerable amount of re-engineering was required of the entire rear deck area; even the rear fenders are slightly restyled. The one-touch power top (offered in four colors) nestles into a binnacle atop the front part of the engine and is completely covered when the rear deck lowers itself back over it. Inside, the headliner covers every bit of the top’s frame, and of course there are no levers or other hardware visible. The top’s up-and-down shtick takes about 20 seconds either direction. The glass rear window mentioned above can be raised or lowered independent of the top. Not only does it serve — very effectively — as the wind blocker, but you can drive with the top up and the rear window down, in order to enjoy a little fresh air and mute the high revving, 10-cylinder noisemaker that sits just aft of your right ear.
