The mid-mounted, rear-wheel-drive Gallardo advances from zero to 60 mph in under four seconds and has a top speed of nearly 200 mph. There are quicker supercars with higher top-end speeds, but the Lamborghini merits attention because of the carmaker’s style and personality. Driving the Gallardo also affords another appealing dichotomy of high-end vehicles.
Lamborghinis are works of art. They turn heads with their sharp-angled design and low-to-the-ground presence. The exhaust notes are particularly appealing, similar to a confident dog’s bark.
The interior, constructed of premium materials, includes an abundance of leather. But it’s also a high-performance supercar with few frills and little space in the front-mounted trunk. The Gallardo’s low stance also means a concerted effort is required to enter and exit.
But isn’t that what driving a special car is all about? It’s about the experience, right? So travel light and be prepared to drive a unique example of automotive history as well as the best-selling Lamborghini ever made. It will be a remarkable driving experience in a vehicle with supercar royalty status.
