Lamborghini’s Gallardo mid-engine exotic supercar of 2014 is the company’s most productive and successful car to date. With well over 130,000 produced, the Gallardo has proven popular, chiefly due to its sinister good looks and impressive showing on the track. Though not as civilized as an
Audi R8 or Jaguar XKR on civilian streets, the Gallardo is tolerable as a daily driver. The Gallardo
Coupe and Spyder are offered with various horsepower ratings and drivetrains. The base LP550-2 is equipped with a 542-horsepower V10 and is rear-wheel drive (RWD). The LP560-4 and LP570-4 bump output to 552 and 562 respectively, and feature all-wheel drive (AWD).
Lamborghini is marking time until a
new car replaces the Gallardo next year. The LP560-4 models get a new array of vents and dividers in front, an enlarged air outlet in back and new wheels. Two LP570-4 Edizione Tecnica models are added, the Superleggera coupe and Spyder Performante.
Lamborghini continues to roll out special, limited-edition Gallardo models to keep up showroom interest. For 2012, the Gallardo LP550-2 Bicolore (2-tone paint) and the race-inspired LP570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale coupes are new.

"REALLY BOUGHT THE CAR BECAUSE OF ITS UNIQUE LINES. IT'S AGGRESSIVE LOOKING THOUGH SLEEK/COOL AT THE SAME TIME. IT'S FAST ENOUGH FOR ME AND HANDLES PRETTY DARN GOOD THROUGH THE TWISTIES. MY BUDDIES ZR-1'S AND BUILT ZO 6'S BLOW MY DOORS OFF, THOUGH I DIG ON THE WAY MY GALLARDO CONVERTIBLE LOOKS. I ALWAYS TURN A LOT OF HEADS AND GET MANY COMPLIMENTS. PEOPLE ALL DAY LONG TAKING PHOTOS WITH THEIR PHONES WHICH HAVE CAMERAS."
"This car is very sleek and nice to show off to friends. With interior and exterior as sharp as a pin, everyone's going to turn their heads on you and your car. Although with convenience, you may want a second car to not worry about going to and from lonng distances."
Pros: "Can go 0-60 with a Matchbox car speeder, maybe"
Cons: "I can't fit in it"
