Earlier this year Mini unveiled a design study that showcased what a next-generation drop top might look like, were the automaker to actually build such a car. Most pundits agreed that it was unlikely that the concept would amount to much more than a clay model, but if these patent images are any indicator, the Superleggera might just become a reality in a showroom near you very soon.
Here is yet another new iteration of the Lamborghini Gallardo being flogged around the Nürburgring. This model looks to be the open-top Spyder version of the LP 570-4 Superleggera, which was unveiled at the Geneva Auto Show back in April.
More torture for us. We are now being forced to do nearly thirty laps all-out on a gorgeous circuit in southern Spain in Lamborghini’s latest hot performer, the 2011 Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera. You may recall the previous generation Gallardo limited-run Superleggera that we tried in early 2007 and that was a goodie, but it didn’t honestly get the full-on treatment and those shortfalls just slightly flawed the drive experience.
