Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera Spyder spy shots – Click above for high-res image gallery

Obvious lengthy name jokes aside, the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera is one heck of a performance machine. It's all about saving weight when it comes to this car ("Superleggera," after all, means "super light"), so it strikes us as something of a surprise to see this prototype of a Spyder version out testing on the Nürburgring.

Most noticeably, the hardtop Superleggera's rear wing is gone, but the large front spoiler and rear diffuser make it clear that this Gallardo means business. Besides, Lamborghini has been known to keep weight under control with its Erector Set roof assemblies, so we'd expect the Superleggera Spyder to generate the same sort of super lightweight thrills with a whole lot more wind in your hair.

Expect to see the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera Spyder (now that's a mouthful) at the Paris Motor Show later this year. For now, click through our gallery below for the full raft of high-res spy shots.

      Body proportions...debatable, but there's a lot of visual imbalance from those angles.

      Lines...there's a lot goin on and Lambos have always kind of been that way. I guess that's what Audi is for, but i think there would be much to gain from a few less choppy lines.

      Fire Risk...well, its under the veedub umbrella so yeah. (I had an A6 burn up)
