In 2006, two years after the launch of their Gallardo supercar, Lamborghini first unveiled its convertible equivalent. The Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder was first showcased at that year’s Los Angeles Auto Show. Although stylistically owing much to its cousin, Lamborghini considered it to be an entirely new model.
The most obvious difference of course, is the retractable soft top, and in the case of the model we have available to book for driving experiences here on TrackDays, its bright lime green livery that makes it all but impossible to miss.
But there’s also a difference where engineering is concerned. The V10 engine is upgraded from 4.2 litres to 5.0 litres, which allows it to power out a supreme 520 bhp, with acceleration from 0 - 60 mph in a thundering 4.2 seconds.
And once behind the wheel of the Gallardo Spyder, with the air moving at lightning speed down the track, you can expect to reach top speeds of 195 mph. It’s the Gallardo - but definitely not as you know it.
It's never been easier to book your Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder Experience than it is right now at Trackdays. We've spent a lot of time optimizing our bookings with the goal of making the entire process as simple and painless as possible, from choosing the proper package on the website to getting behind the wheel.
If you're booking for yourself, our live date availability means that after you've selected your package, you can go straight to the calendar and choose a date and time that works for you. This is ideal if you have a set timetable or if you're looking for something a little more last-minute!
If you're shopping for a friend, family member, or loved one, our open date gift vouchers will be a much better fit. These vouchers are good for ten months from the date of purchase, making them an excellent choice if you don't know the person's schedule or availability.
After purchasing the voucher, they can redeem it online and book a date, or they can call our customer service team and book it through them. Either way, a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder is an unforgettable gift, and it's never been easier to book than right now!
Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder Experiences: Important Booking Information
If you're purchasing an open Lamborghini package gift voucher, double-check the validity period, since some Lamborghini special offer vouchers and regular packages may have a shorter or longer validity period, which will be clearly mentioned on the gift token.
If you want to book a Lamborghini drive right now, keep in mind that you're making a booking request, and the day and time you choose will be subject to availability after we receive your order. We normally confirm bookings within 48 hours, but it's critical that you don't make any plans related to your reservation until you receive a final confirmation email. When you make a booking request, you will receive an immediate receipt. This is not the confirmation.
Remember to check when purchasing Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder Track Days is that the driver fits all age, weight, height, and driving license criteria. Each event will have its own set of prerequisites, so make sure you've read all of the key details.
If an experience is solely for junior drivers, we will normally specify it in the package name, but this is not always the case. If a driver does not match the standards on the day, they will most likely not be allowed to drive and will have to settle for a passenger ride.
Wondering whether to plump for a Gallardo or a Gallardo Spyder on the used car market? Of Lamborghini’s two prime supercars of the 00s, the Gallardo Spyder is currently the cheaper option. Estimates suggest its value is currently around £75,000.
In their review of their first drive of the Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder in 2006, Car Magazine praised it, saying ‘You drive a lot of cars on smooth, sunny, foreign roads and they make perfect sense … so it’s a pleasant surprise that the Gallardo Spyder works so brilliantly in the UK.’
All experiences are subject to availability. The most recent information on dates when an event may be available can be checked by looking at the calendars on the website, or when you have activated and logged in with your voucher. Please note not all spaces are shown online so if you cannot see spaces for your event please call or email for dates. We will do our best to secure your preferred choice of event, venue and date, but to avoid disappointment book as early as possible, especially for peak times such as weekends and the summer months which book up very quickly. Do not purchase an experience for yourself or as a gift that has a choice of venues if you or the person it is for are only able to travel to one of the choices. Once you are booked, you are bound by the terms and conditions of the event host of which a copy can be made available upon request. In most circumstances, a cancellation cannot be made once a date has been booked.
When booking by phone or online you should not make arrangements in connection with an Event until you have received your final booking confirmation stating your date and time (this does not include the automatic purchase email you receive that confirms what you have just ordered). Your final confirmation will usually arrive within 48 hours of making the purchase. For voucher redemption see 'voucher conditions' below. Where specific elements of an Event such as vehicles or equipment are not available due to mechanical breakdown, we reserve the right to make reasonable substitutions on the day. If this is not possible we reserve the right to cancel the experience at short notice.
Voucher holders must make a prior booking and receive confirmation in order that an open voucher can be redeemed. We recommend that when you have chosen your experience you redeem your voucher at least 21 days in advance of taking your selected experience. We do not guarantee availability on all events, even if the date is showing, so if a chosen event is full or you cannot find a suitable date during the validity period of your voucher then the credit can be used towards an alternative event. Do not arrive at a venue expecting to be able to use your voucher without making a prior booking and receiving a booking confirmation. Trackdays.co.uk will not be held liable for any costs incurred in such circumstances.
Unless stated otherwise, vouchers are valid for one person only. Where necessary a top-up payment can be made to increase the value of a voucher to book a higher priced event. Note that during the out of season months the price of experience may change. If the price of the event is lower than the value of the voucher the remaining credit will be held for use until the vouchers expiry date. We recommend booking as early as possible as you must have undertaken your experience before the expiry date printed on the front of your Voucher. All vouchers will be valid for use up to the expiry date displayed, but after this date, vouchers will automatically expire and cannot be reinstated under any circumstances. Trackdays.co.uk staff are not responsible for reminding or informing customers when a voucher is due to expire. A voucher holder may book a date which is outside of the expiration date displayed on the voucher but must extend the expiry of their voucher for an administration fee. This must be processed before the original expiry date. Voucher credit cannot be used for extension fees or to pay for booking protection.
