Lamborghini Gallardo Review
There was once a bull that was revered as one of the fiercest of its lot. This bull tamed even the most vicious of bulls and stood up like a headship of the herd. This bull was named Lamborghini. And this is from where the name Lamborghini emerged to become one of the most iconic sports cars in the automobile industry. Proudly known as the sidekick of Lamborghini Murcielago, Gallardo became an instant hit once it was launched into the market by the automobile heavyweight. Lamborghini has since 2003, sold more than 10,000 units of Gallardo which makes it one of the most sold sports cars ever. Lamborghini Gallardo with its Coupe` body style reflecting through the high-arched waistlines and a tail like nose and extended wheel base gives a feel of supremacy and grandness yet a hint of sportiness. With its high levels of aggressive performance on the road and enhanced fuel consumption and a very exhilarating top speed this car will surely leave everybody behind. The Xenon Bi-lamps and the body colour complementing body bumpers add a very sporty touch to the exterior. The alloy wheels and the tinted glass with a sunroof, the Lamborghini Gallardo is surely an impressive art of styling.
The interior is very lavish laded with electronic controls, high-standard material for adornment and driver accessible controls and adjustments. With seating capacity of two, the car is made for a very sporty ride. The steering adjustments are very accessible along with the rear defogger, auto Viper, Auto Headlamp, button controls on the steering makes everything very easy to use and smart. It is equipped with a multimedia system providing high quality sound experience, convenient arm rests, remote boot, power windows, door mirrors electronically adjusted, rear AC vent and folding rear seat. With these options available both driver and passengers have a very comfortable yet automotive enhanced ride. The safety features provided by the car are made keeping in mind a very stable ride in spite of the thrill you are going to experience. Eight airbags with dual and side impact absorption quality help in protection against collision injuries. Parking sensors, Traction lamps, EBD, ABS and ESP are also available. Fog lamps and the bi-xenon lights along with the LED light clusters ensure better vision irrespective of the weather changes.
The designing of the bull was done in the year 2000 when a few highly proficient and creative minds of Lamborghini gave shape to Gallardo. When it comes to exterior design, Lamborghini Gallardo truly lives up to the brand name as it has been aerodynamically built in order to ensure that there is no resistance from air. In order to keep the weight of the car low, the whole chassis has been made using a specialized alloy which has been compositely blended with castings and extrusions. Thus, low weight helps the car attain greater speeds and assists in a better rate of acceleration to the car. The exoskeleton of the car has been made using thermoplastic panels. Though sadly, Gallardo does not have the traditional scissor doors. There are two versions of the bull namely Gallardo Superleggera and Gallardo Spider Performante which have both interiors as well as exteriors made up of carbon-fiber. On the contrary, the rear as well as the side windows have been done up using poly-carbonate. Gallardo boasts of stylish 19-inch alloy wheels.
Once we step inside the car, a whole new level of elegance enthrals us. Lamborghini has made sure that the furnishings are up to the mark and give the passengers a sense of elegance which no other car can give. The comfort level of the car is spellbinding as the two-tone contour of the cabin strikes a chord with the passenger almost immediately. All the stitching as well as the piping has been done in sync with the exterior colour of the car. The headrest of both the driver’s seat as well as the passenger’s seat has the Lamborghini shield embarked on them. The script of Lamborghini is embossed well onto the dashboard and the carpets manning the floor have the same outlining as that of the body colour. Partially perforated leather has been used exquisitely in order to decorate the interiors of Gallardo and almost all of the components inside the cabin are handcrafted. Thus, all these features add golden stars to the interiors of the car in the same way as the exterior of the car.
Engine and Gearbox
It is highly imminent that a car of this stature will have a diabolic engine breathing beneath its hood and waiting to ignite the tracks. The grunge of the engine is something that clearly shows off the power that this heart is capable of pumping out. Lamborghini Gallardo is a raging bull powered by a monstrous V10 engine having 10 cylinders and DOHC 4 valves connected. It gives a displacement capacity of 5204cc with a common-pin high-performance crankshaft. The gear of the valve is driven by a chain and the exhaust as well as intake is controlled electronically. This engine is capable of churning out a maximum power of 520/550/570 Bhp at 8000 rpm. Along with this, it gives a corresponding maximum torque value of 540 Nm at 6500 rpm. The bull runs on an undying and stable 4-wheel drive system manned with high-level viscous traction system. Lamborghini Gallardo engine is tuned to a 6-speed transmission system which can be operated both automatically as well as manually.
Acceleration and Performance
With an engine that has the capability to dole out a maximum power of 520/550/570 Bhp at 8000 rpm and a peak torque value of 540 Nm at 6500 rpm, Lamborghini Gallardo accelerates with blinding thrust and goes from 0-100 Km/hr in flat 3.4 seconds and 0-200 Km/hr in 10.4 seconds. The maximum attainable speed of Lamborghini Gallardo recorded till date is 198.8 mph which equals 320 Km/hr.
A car which can attain an impeccable acceleration rate and a blinding speed must also ensure that all the safety features possible, are being installed in the car in case of any mishap. Gallardo consists of double wishbone rear as well as front suspension which make the car perfect not only for on-road treading but off-road as well. Gallardo consists of anti-roll bar, anti-squat and anti-dive. A fully functional ESP system has been placed which has sub-components such as ASR, ABD and ABS. The steering wheel has a pinion as well as a rack both of which are power-assisted. The external mirrors placed to the side of the car have a provision of being folded manually and the rear spoiler can be set as per convenience. Airbags are there for both the driver as well as the co-passenger.
Some of the additional features included in the car are on-board computer, anti-theft system, heated mirrors, protective cover, e-gear, “coming home” function, two suitcases, navigation system, lifting system, smoker’s version, etc. These features are something that we would not usually come across in any car but owing to the exorbitant price, these are some of the features which justify the price-tag.
Lamborghini Gallardo is powered by a 5204c V10 petrol engine. It generates maximum power of 550/560/570 Bhp with maximum torque of 540 nm.

Lamborghini Gallardo has everything that one can ask for. Starting from exterior as well as interiors and moving over to cut-throat ergonomics as well as safety features, Gallardo surely lives up to its name.
