It’s no secret that the Lamborghini Gallardo is the first model to get built under Audi’s ownership. When you first check out the car in person, you will soon spot the German car maker’s influence on the vehicle. But is that a good thing, or should you avoid the car like the plague and head over to your nearest Ferrari dealership?
Well, let me tell you that Audi cars are known for their excellent build quality and attention to detail.
And their influence on the design and build process has brought the Gallardo up to Audi standards. In today’s car review, I’ll give you the lowdown on this Italian stallion and explain why you should consider buying one!
You will fall in love with that V10 engine note
Under the hood, the Gallardo is powered by a 5.0-liter V10 motor that boasts an impressive 493 horsepower! It will get you from zero to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds and has a top speed of 196 mph. Of course, to achieve such speeds you would have to drive on a racing circuit or unlimited parts of the German autobahn.
It’s a 40-valve supercar that should get avoided by people that want a frugal car. Good gas mileage isn’t what this car is about; in case you wondered, it offers a woeful 14 mpg! The reasons you might want this car is simple: it’s fast and loud!
Let’s say you reach an open stretch of road, or you’re at a test track somewhere. Put your foot down on the gas pedal, and I can guarantee you that the Gallardo will leave you with a massive grin on your face! I recommend that everyone drive the car at least once in their lives. Whether it’s through buying one or borrowing one through an exotic car rentals company!
It offers excellent handling
As standard, the Lamborghini Gallardo comes with all-wheel drive. Having such a system will instantly make any car handle better on the road. But, in the Gallardo, the handling will be something you have never experienced in your life before!
You can go around any corner at speed, and the car is still firmly planted on the ground. Saying that the handling is phenomenal is likely the understatement of the century! You might think that I am exaggerating when I say this. But the Gallardo will be the best handling car you will ever drive in your lifetime.
You can drive it on any roads without losing your teeth
One thing I love about the Gallardo is that it’s a car that you can drive on public roads. As you know, you will seldom find a town or city where the roads are in excellent condition. They are full of potholes and ruts. Many supercar owners are used to dealing with poor handling in “everyday” driving conditions.
But, where the Gallardo leaves its competition behind is that it’s a car you can drive on any paved road, regardless of the driving conditions. So, why are you still here? Go out and get a Gallardo NOW!
