Lamborghini Gallardo

Lamborghini's smaller car is the Gallardo. There are four Gallardos to choose from, and all offer stunning performance from the firm's 5.2-litre V10 engine. The standard Lamborghini Gallardo is available as a Coupe or Spyder convertible, and there are two more extreme Coupes available, the lightweight, more powerful four-wheel drive Superleggera, and the rear-wheel drive Valentino Balboni edition made in honour of Lamborghini's test driver. The special editions are better to drive, and all offer plenty of style and a fantastic soundtrack from the V10 engine. The interiors aren’t the best in terms of finish, and the driving position is compromised, but it is well equipped and forward visibility is OK for a supercar.

  • Tiny 110-litre boot
  • Starting to feel dated

Even after 10 years, the Lamborghini Gallardo is still one of the most distinctive supercars on the road. Offereing unbelievable acceleration, perfectly weighted and precise steering, and excellent all round usability, the Gallardo is about as versatile as a modern day supercar gets. It undercuts the Ferrari 458 and McLaren 12C, but it's more expensive than an Audi R8 and not cheap to run either. A lack of storage space means that the Gallardo is not the most practical car, while a Aston Martin Vantage and Bentley Continental GT both have a bigger boot. Altohugh qulaity is top-notch, the baby Lambo is starting to feel old, with more modern competition stealing the limelight from every angle.
