What should I look for in a used Lamborghini Gallardo coupe?
There was a time when Lamborghini owners would spend as much time standing on the hard shoulder as they did sitting behind the wheel.
Lamborghini is now owned by Audi, a company famed for the solid construction of its products. The German DNA really shows in the modern Lambo. The materials are of a good quality and they're very well screwed together.
We expect this solidity to carry through to the Gallardo's mechanical parts, but at the moment we can't be completely sure. We need a certain sample size before we can accurately assess the long-term reliability of a car, and with the Gallardo costing so much when new there simply aren't enough of them around for a proper sample.
That said, with Audi's involvement, you can be confident that the Gallardo will prove less troublesome than many supercars.
