Off the line, the new Gallardo feels more eager than the outgoing model, with a power curve that’s smoother and more robust at the lower end of the powerband. Plant the throttle, and the engine sounds a bit less husky than the prior version; this V10 is more aircraft-like, and while open-window cruising reveals more bass notes from the exhaust, cabin noise is generally less boomy than in the 2008 Gallardo.
Despite being a bit rough around the edges, the Gallardo LP560-4’s hardcore personality makes it an entertaining drive at any speed. It may be in its element getting tossed around a racetrack at triple-digit velocities, but with greater engine flexibility and better handling, this stylish 200-mph supercar has become sexier than ever.
