What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Performance

Mid-way around the tachometer, at about 4,000 rpm, the note becomes higher and more frenzied, like a fast boil.
by AutoBlog (Jul, 2012)
Thanks to a low curb weight (about 3,045 pounds), the fixed-roof coupe will hit 62 mph in 3.9 seconds as it blasts towards a top speed of 199 mph.

Using that guide, the LP 570-4 Spyder Performante is a 570-horsepower, all-wheel-drive convertible designed for ultimate performance.

Powertrain

The straight-edge look continues on the engine cover and forward of the taillights where louvers provide additional cooling for the engine compartment.

Shift effort with the standard six-speed manual is surprisingly light, though Lambo says most buyers will likely opt for the available "e-gear" clutchless paddle-shift transmission ($10,000).
by MotorTrend (Nov, 2004)
The six-speed e-gear automated manual transmission is a no-cost alternative to the six-speed manual.
by Car and Driver (Nov, 2007)

Handling

Audi's current reputation is based on sleek, serious, all-wheel-drive sedans with interior designs as handsome as they are functional.
by MotorTrend (Nov, 2003)
Using a 560-4 as a base, Lamborghini painstakingly made dozens of changes to lighten the chassis, improve aerodynamics, refine the suspension and tune the ten-cylinder engine for more power.
by AutoBlog (Jun, 2010)
The LP570 has shed more than 70kg, making it lighter than the rear-wheel-drive-only Balboni special edition, despite the full suite of 4x4-ness.
by Top Gear (Apr, 2010)

Engine

The engine is pretty flexible, with plenty of thrust from 3000 rpm up.
by Car and Driver (Nov, 2007)
With the top down, it's an exhilarating sports car on a fast country road, where it engages its driver with its performance and quick reflexes and the wonderful sounds made by the wind and engine.
by Car and Driver (Mar, 2006)
The trumpeting engine loves to get in on the action, launching a vocal assault and hammer- blow of acceleration with no thought for the consequences.
by EVO

Transmission

The reason is that the extroverted Italian maker didn’t want to sacrifice acceleration, of which the Superleggera—aided by its four-wheel traction and fantastically brutal, 5500-rpm, clutch-dropping launch control—has in spades.
by Car and Driver (May, 2010)
A six-speed manual or six-speed automated-manual transmission is available.
by cars.com (Feb, 2014)
The only item exclusive to Lamborghini is the carbon-fiber-trimmed transmission tunnel that has pushbuttons for activating the fully automatic mode of the automated manual transmission, tuning the suspension for sport mode, and deactivating the stability program.
