Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder

Is the Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder's body made of carbon fibre? If so, would it be able to not have a Lamborghini not painted, just the canbonfibre showing?

the body isn't made of carbon fiber..... the only car that comes to mind that has the body made from Carbon Fiber is the Porsche Carrera GT. I have no clue about the paint thing though... Probably possible with a special order.

While the Gallardo Superleggera isn't entirely made of carbon fiber, it's got plenty of body parts that are.

The car wasn't meant to look nice. It was meant to be a light sports car. They were so concerned with weight that there's no door handle even! lol.

BTW I think the F40 is pretty sexy.

thers no carpets either, or lining, not even a gator!
but i do know that the v10 in the gallardo is based on Audi's old straight-5 design. The engine was split again to become the straight-5 engine found in the new Volkswagen Jetta. The 5.0 L engine (basically the same engine featured in Audi's S6 and S8 models) is a current Audi 4.2 L V8 (featured in Audi's S4, A6, A8, and Q7 models) with two extra cylinders added and a slightly smaller bore diameter, apart from Gallardo named after the spanish fighting bull, it also means in spanish "Gallant"

If I ever made a car, I would make it sound like some powerful word, but in English. Something like Slaughter. There's a manly word .

WHAT YOU CAN DO IS MAKE COPIES OF ALL THE STEEL BODY PANELS IN CARBON FIBRE AND PLACE THEM ON THE CAR , YOU NEED A PERSON WHO'S QUALIFIED TO MAKE CARBON FIBRE TO MAKE IT OR ELSE IT WONT BE AS STRONG , CARBON FIBRE IS 10X STRONGER THAN STEEL AND 3X LIGHTER (IN SOME SURCUMSTANCES) LIKE YOU NEED A PERSON WHO MAKES CARBON FIBRE BODY PANELS FOR THE F1 RACE CARS.
THE F1 INTERIOR SHELL CAN WITHSTAND A 200+MPH CRASH INTO A SOLID CONCRETE WALL AND IF ITS DONE RIGHT U CAN WALK AWAY WITH NO INJURIES. F1 CARS CAN GO FROM 0-100-0 IN A LITTLE OVER 4SECS THATS ZERO TO 100 AND BACK DOWN TO ZERO IN A LITTLE OVER 4 SECONDS ITS AMAZING. . .

no.... you need someone capable to make it as strong. Qualifications don't always translate into skills. You might need someone qualified to make it LEGAL.
