THIS week's blog is on a beautiful 2010 Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder spotted at The Star Casino, Sydney.

Behind the two seats sits a raging 5.2-litre, 40-valve V10 engine which can produce up to 418 kilowatts (560 horsepower) at 8000rpm and 538 Newton metres of torque (397 pound-feet of torque) at 6500rpm.

This power then goes through a six-speed automated manual transmission sends the power to all-four wheels. On each side of the steering column are paddle shifters to manually shift the gearbox, you pull the right paddle shifter to go up a gear and you pull the left paddle shifter to go down a gear.

This particular Gallardo also has a kerb weight of 1485 kilograms (3274 pounds).

All of this allows the 2010 Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder to launch from 0-100 kilometres per hour in just 3.7 seconds, and it will keep accelerating until it reaches its top speed of 325 kilometres per hour (202 miles per hour).

It was designed to be a cheaper alternative to the Murcielago model, and it was set to compete with the Ferrari 360.

When it was first released, it had a 5.0-litre V10 with 373 kilowatts (500 horsepower), which was 75 kilowatts (100 horsepower) more than the Ferrari 360.

At the 2008 Geneva Motor Show Lamborghini launched the LP560-4 as the facelifed version of the Gallardo, and new features included updated headlights and taillights, new front and rear bumpers, a larger and more powerful engine and much more.

The Lamborghini Gallardo has now become the most popular Lamborghini ever, with 14,022 models being built... that's right, almost half of all Lamborghinis are Gallardos.

Lamborghini released the Huracan a couple of weeks ago as the replacement for the Gallardo, and this new model has 455 kilowatts (610 horsepower) and is capable of 0-100 in 3.2 seconds.

Some other features that this particular Lamborghini is equipped with includes Nero Serapis metallic paint, a black power convertible roof, variable intermittent wipers, 19-inch, 10-spoke alloy wheels wrapped in performance tyres, four-wheel ABS as well as traction and stability control, xenon headlights as well as daytime running LEDs, seatbelt pretensioners, electronic brake force distribution, double wishbone front and rear suspension, a red leather interior, dual-zone climate controls for the driver and passenger.

You can buy a 2010 Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 for about $300,000 AUD.
