Which used Lamborghini Gallardo coupe should I buy?

All versions come with a 5.0-litre V10 petrol engine, and even in the standard car it develops a whopping 492bhp. The Gallardo is hurled to 60mph from a standing start in just 4.2sec and on to 192mph.

If you can, find a version with the standard manual gearbox. Many buyers specified the optional clutchless manual paddle-shift gearchange when the car was new, but this makes things too jerky and doesn't enhance the sports car experience as well as many hoped it would.

There's also an SE version that is even quicker. An extra 28bhp is squeezed out of the V10 to give a total of 520bhp. This slices two tenths off the 0-60mph time and adds 4mph to the top speed. However, it's much more expensive, and the standard car is plenty fast enough.
