For The Lamborghini Gallardo has huge supercar appeal and Audi build quality. Performance is guaranteed by a 552bhp V10 engine and a race-tuned chassis.
Against Not an easy car in which to get comfortable behind the wheel. There could be more feedback from the steering, and rear visibility is poor. The ride is hard at low speed and the interior fittings are disappointing.
What Car? says
Great to look at, with a huge amount of power fed through a composed chassis, but the Lamborghini Gallardo is not the most exciting drive.

When asked to think of a supercar, chances are that most people will conjure up the image of a Lamborghini. In fact, we'd almost wager that, if you look up 'supercar' in a dictionary, it will say, 'see Lamborghini'. The Gallardo really is everything a supercar should be: astonishing to look at and amazing to drive.
Beyond the choice between coupe and open-top, there's not much to worry about - well, we're assuming that, if you can afford to look at a Gallardo, you can afford its sky-high running costs.
There's only one engine and trim, but if you want to avoid the almost inevitable waiting list, ask the dealer if there are any cancelled orders. Or, try shopping around specialists who may be able to get you into a Lambo more quickly - albeit probably for a premium.
