What used Lamborghini Gallardo coupe will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Lamborghini Gallardo coupe?

Breaking the bank is what Lamborghinis were designed to do. For people who can actually afford a Gallardo, spending a fortune on one is half the fun.

Residual values on the Gallardo are pretty good in supercar terms. After three years, buyers of new cars will still be able to sell them for well over 60% of the car's original value. Good news for new buyers, not so great for used buyers, especially when you consider that the thing cost well over £100k in the first place.

Running costs are also horrific, not that you'll care if you can afford a Gallardo in the first place. Obviously, it's in the costliest group 20 for insurance, and the fuel consumption could bankrupt you. You'll get a combined average of just 14.5mpg. Servicing will also be pricey, due to a mixture of exotic parts and 7500-mile service intervals.
