Lamborghini Gallardo Review

The Lamborghini Gallardo proves that the brand is not just capable of sports car design, but also concerned with assuring its vehicles of a promising future. The latest model doesn’t upgrade features from its previous model but also offers the company’s most ecologically efficient and economical car. The Gallardo is also a 560ps, four-wheel drive or a 560-4 vehicle that continues to prove how determined Lamborghini is in continuing its stake in the market.

Pros

The Gallardo stresses its Lamborghini identity in its interior, sporting not just carbonfibre and leather made material, but also the trademark steeply raked windscreen, and the low-slung driving position. All these comply to the necessary ergonomic requirements, while still offering distinguished enhancements in the provided equipment. Some of its top notch features include its top of the line sat-nav system, switchgear, a quality stereo and even a rear view of the car’s behind upon selecting reverse. The boot is also quite spacious and the cabin also includes several cubby spaces for added storage. If you want to do away with the roof, the Spyder roof model lets you remove it at the press of a button. Enjoy cruising down an ocean side road in your sudden convertible. At the same time, the rear screen keeps in its place to help deflect the wind even with the hood down.

Other great upgrades to the current design include larger front and rear anti-roll bars, enhancements to the rear suspension geometry and steering, and uprated dampers.

For a four-wheel drive supercar, the Gallardo is quite light at its weight of 1410 kg. The performance continues to impress with its V10 engine and its pleasing sound. In just 3.7 seconds, the supercar can arrive at 60mph and 100mph in just 7.7. The gearbox enhances this engine’s performance; despite not being the smoothest unit out there, Lamborghini makes sure it shifts smoothly into acceleration and quickly shifts into each gear. Then there’s the option of listening to the 5.2-litre V10 when the hood is down on the LP560-4 Spyder. Serious car enthusiasts will find a new kind of thrill listening to the engine purr under the hood.

The Gallardo also manages to find the right balance among comfort, composure, balance, and grip. Steering and traction is also excellent on most road conditions. Lumpy surfaces are a breeze as the car is able to absorb the impact from such troublesome surfaces.

Cons

Although handling is impressive on most ends, the 560-4 vehicle tends to lean as you drive into a quick corner. The Gallardo’s nose also tends to run wide, resulting in an oversteer if you leave the ESP disengaged. You should note that the understeer comes naturally in the chassis given the required civility of the 560. The inconvenience is ultimately negligible, and despite the Gallardo’s luxurious, billionaire image, the Gallardo actually performs more as a reliable and good driving car. Most of the Gallardo’s upgrades are fine by default. The optional carbon-ceramic brakes don’t add much to the experience and tend to feel dead when taken on the road.

A History of the Lamborghini Gallardo

As one of the company’s most popular sports cars to date, the Lamborghini Gallardo has been awarded the Dream Car of the Year award in 2006 and Car of the Year award in 2009 by Top Gear, the magazine show for automobiles. The car has been in production since 2003, giving rise to special editions that have enjoyed worldwide reception.

Succeeding the Lamborghini Jalpa, the Gallardo comes in 2-door coupe or 2-door spyder sketched by Luc Donckerwolke, current designer for Volkswagen. The first generation included the Gallardo Superleggera, produced from 2007 to 2008, a tribute to the Lamborghini 350GT by Carrozzeria Touring.

The LP 560-4, which was based on the design of the Murcielago LP 640, was introduced by 2008. This generation had improved fuel efficiency due to the direct fuel injection system and 40 PS engine. From 2008 to 2012, five variants in different body styles have also been produced. This includes the LP 560-4 Spyder first unveiled at the 2008 Los Angeles Auto Show. Starting 2005, special limited editions of the Gallardo were also released for international markets.

The Lamborghini Gallardo also has a strong legacy in GT races. In 2007, the Gallardo was restyled for motorsport racing by Reiter Engineering. A motorsport version, the LP 560-4 Super Trofeo, was raced until 2011.
