For High performance is guaranteed by a V10 engine and a race-tuned chassis. The Lamborghini Gallardo has huge supercar appeal and then there's the Audi build quality.

Against Not easy to get comfortable, rear visibility is poor and the interior fittings are disappointing. There could be more feedback from the steering, the low-speed ride is hard and the big tyres create a lot of road noise.

Great to look at, with a huge amount of power fed through a composed chassis, but the Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder is not the most exciting drive.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

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 even consider buying 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.
