Vehicle Details Interior

The interior of a Lamborghini Gallardo is nearly as striking as the exterior. But remember, this exotic Italian marque is part of the Audi corporate stable, so you know the cockpit will be sumptuous, accommodating and beautifully made. Leather is everywhere. On higher-level Gallardos it's Alcantara suede. Carbon-fiber trim is also offered. The standard bucket seats offer good support, but the unyielding carbon-fiber chairs in the Superleggera are built for racing and jockey-sized occupants. Be sure to pack light because there is little trunk space (less than four cubic feet) and no back seat.

Exterior

The low-slung 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo has sharply angled body work and prominent air intakes front, sides and back. This year, the LP560 models get a new face, with dividers creating strongly triangular intakes. Doors hinge conventionally on the Gallardo (not the famous but less practical scissors arrangement its Aventador stablemate still uses) and entrance and egress are easier than the belt-high roofline suggests. The short-nosed cab-forward design contributes to the Gallardo's overall wedge shape. Spyder models have a power-operated insulated cloth top that can be raised or lowered in 20 seconds.

Notable Standard Equipment

Most of the expected premium-car trappings are here, such as dual-zone A/C, a power tilt/telescope steering wheel, a power adjustable driver's seat, power heated side mirrors that tilt in, keyless remote entry, and so on. Likewise for safety hardware like ABS, traction control, stability control, dual front airbags, dual side airbags and pop-up rollbars for the convertibles. But a power passenger seat, heated seats, and even front cupholders cost extra. Cruise control isn't available at all, probably because you're expected to be attentive and involved with your Gallardo at all times.

Notable Optional Equipment

Every paint color but gloss black is listed as an extra-cost option on the Gallardo, the $26K matte-finish paints being the most extreme examples. Other popular options include a navigation system, back-up camera and rear park-assist system (highly recommended), ceramic disc brakes, and an alarm system. The E-gear automated "manual" transmission – essentially an automatic – is a $10,000 option on the LP550 Coupe and Spyder models, and the only offering on the LP 560s and LP570s. The 2013 Gallardo is available with lots of accessory and trim packages for you to customize to your personal taste.

Under the Hood

The 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo's V10 engine creates a soundtrack worthy of the car's breathtaking appearance. Acceleration is as effortless as it is addictive, any Gallardo model capable of cracking 60 mph from rest in less than four seconds and topping out just shy of 200 mph. The slick-shifting 6-speed manual transmission is still standard on the rear-drive LP550-2 models but it's being phased out (and rumor has it there will be no manual at all next year) in favor of the automated manual E-gear transmission. The paddle-operated 6-speed E-gear has driver-selectable modes, "A" for lazy shifts and laid-back cruising, "Sport" for quicker shifts and "Corsa" for a day at the track with tire-chirping, wide-open-throttle upshifts.

Pricing Notes

Like other limited-production exotic supercars, there is a considerable price spread between base and fully loaded examples, ranging from about $194K for a 2013 Gallardo LP550-2 Coupe to more than $250K for a 2013 Gallardo LP570-4 Performante Spyder. Particularly with the Ad Personum personalization program, wherein any Gallardo can be fitted with a broad selection of leather, Alcantara suede, carbon fiber, piano black and other interior trims, a wide palette of exterior and interior color schemes, custom wheels, painted brake calipers, carbon-fiber engine compartment trim and so on, the potential exists for a truly one-of-a-kind Lamborghini no one else has – costing tens of thousands more. Though all Lamborghinis are more plentiful in warm-weather states, be sure to investigate the KBB.com Fair Purchase Price to see what buyers in your area are paying.
