DRIVABILITY A driving experience of the highest precision.

The Gallardo RWD Spyder is a perfect combination of design and open-air driving fun that can come only from a super sports car with unbelievably agile and spontaneous handling.
The setup is laid out to ensure maximum stability, while the front axle steers with the highest level of precision. The Gallardo RWD Sypder is the perfect fit for the kind of sports car driver that enjoys a particularly hands-on and spirited style of driving.

RWD Setup Further developed frame.

The engineers at Sant'Agata Bolognese carried out extensive modifications to the Gallardo RWD Spyder.
In addition to concentrating the drive on the rear axle, the vehicle was also completely retuned in all its dynamic details, including a specific dampers setting. The aerodynamics were also adapted to account for the change in the distribution of forces.
