Following up on the Ferrari F430 Spider, with its customized Lamborghini Spyder, Hamann has now introduced a second top-class, open-top Italian racer into its tuning range.
The extensive aerodynamics suite, which has been perfectly matched to the body of the “compact” Lamborghini, includes a downforce generating front spoiler, equipped with an adjustable cup front spoiler lip borrowed from the racing scene.
The muscular appearance of the Gallardo Spyder is enhanced by the new side sills – which also make the car look lower on the road,
The rear end features a three-piece rear spoiler or – as an alternative – a racing car-like rear wing, which helps to generate greatly enhanced downforce, and can be coupled with an exclusive diffuser. All the components are available both in fiberglass and Carbon-Kevlar.
Anyway the most important features are the in-house developed wing doors that open upwards like on the Countach, Diablo and Murciélago models.
The doors hinges are only just about visible, without giving the impression of having been retrofitted. This ensures that the Gallardo still cuts a fine figure when the entrance area is inspected.
Hamann offers two types of sports rear mufflers – one version can be used in conjunction with the original tailpipes, thanks to the supplied adaptors, while the other version has four tailpipes each with a 76mm diameter – from V2A stainless steel.
Furthermore, it is possible to recalibrate the standard ECU coupled with optimized mapping. This leads to an increase in power of 30 bhp / 22kW (series 520 bhp / 382 kW) and a 40 Nm increase in torque for this Italian powerhouse. The top speed increases by 6 to 320 km/h.
The rear brakes feature two slotted and inside-vented brake discs in the dimension 360 x 32 mm, two six-piston fixed caliper brakes in red and special handbrake linings.
The front axle is fitted with wheels in the dimensions 9 x 19 inches, with size 235/35 Z R19 tires, the rear axle is fitted with 12 x 19 inches and 295/30 Z R19 tires.
20-inches wheels are offered by Hamann as an option. The special “Edition Race” 20-inches wheels, fitted on the front axle in an 8.5 x 20 dimension with size 235/30ZR20 tires and on the rear axle in an 11.25 x 20 dimension with size 325/25ZR20 tires.
Upon request, Hamann can also upgrade the vehicle interior with a 11-piece kit of decorative carbon-fiber trims or make custom modifications according to the customer’s needs.
