We recently took the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 550-2 Spyder for a spin. And we quickly found that the car, which has a sticker price of $239,000, is an absolute beast to drive.We snapped some still photos so you can take in this high-end piece of machinery in more detail.

The gearbox is 6-speed and reverse, with an optional robotized sequential e-gear system with actuation by paddles on the steering column.

Like all Lamborghinis, the Gallardo sits low to the ground.

It does 0-62 mph in 4.2 seconds.
