Spyker C8 vs Lamborghini Gallardo

Spyker C8

Lamborghini Gallardo

The Spyker C8 Aileron Spyder sports a luxury, semi-automatic canvas soft-top. The roof's operation is electric/hydraulic, secured by one central latch operated manually.

Once folded, the soft-top is totally enclosed within the body of the vehicle, enabling for an undisturbed profile. The roof retracts under an aluminium tonneau, with two buttresses upholstered in quilted Hulshof leather (matching the car's interior) and featuring the company's motto Nulla Tenaci Invia Est Via (for the tenacious, no road is impassable). The soft top has a glass back window and is available in eight colors.

The Spyker C8 Aileron Spyder features a luggage rack, Cnc-machined from solid billets of aluminium, mounted immediately behind the roll hoops, on which a wing-shaped aluminium case is strapped. The case is trimmed in the same quilted leather as the dashboard and buttresses.

The Spyker C8 Aileron is an advanced mid-engine, two-seat sports vehicle, featuring a longer wheelbase than Spyker's existing sports vehicles, the Spyker C8 Laviolette and convertible Spyker C8 Spyder. The Aileron is characterized by a distinctive layout, lightweight all-aluminium body construction and an uncompromising engineering suite. The Spyker C8 Aileron is hand-crafted, using only the finest bespoke materials to create a original auto statement.
Even more dynamic, lighter, more comprehensive and stunning - the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera is the new top model in the Lamborghini Gallardo line-up. Its evocative superlight badge refers to a driving machine of true sporting character and describes a high-performance and lean auto athlete. The Superleggera makes its entrance to continue the success of its predecessor, launched in 2007, of which Lamborghini manufactured and sold no less than 618 in just one year.

Compared with the already lean Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4, the weight of the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera has been trimmed by 70 kilograms (154 lb). The super sportscar from Sant'agata Bolognese boasts a dry weight of no more than 1340 kilograms (2954 lb) - the lightest road-going model in Lamborghini's range, and a new arrival in one of the most exclusive sphere niche segments.

One key factor is the look and dashboard elements made from carbon-fiber. Carbon-fiber is perfect for the manufacture of sportscars as its use enables for weight reduction and enhanced mechanical features. The car's performance is thus improved due to a better weight-to-power ratio and reduced total mass, which means that CO2 emissions are also lower. Lamborghini has been at the forefront in this material's application for many years, and now the make is extending its leadership even further.

The V10 performance unit with 5. 2 liters (3176, cu in) of displacement generates 419 Kw (570 CV) in the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera. This puts the weight-to-power ratio of the new top model at only 2. 35 kilograms (5. 18 lb) per CV and guarantees breathtaking performance. The Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera handles the dashboard from zero to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3. 4 seconds and flies past the 200 km/h (124 mph) mark only 10. 2 seconds later, ultimately reaching 325 km/h (202 mph). The motor with Iniezione Diretta Stratificata gasoline direct injection also boasts an cool degree of efficiency. Its fuel consumption and CO2 emissions have been reduced by 205, percent compared to the previous model.
