Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4: Driving report

Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4
Another great driving report of the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4. Nice photo gallery as well. A favorite car on our list of dream cars!

Lamborghini has updated the Gallardo’s shell to bring it more in to line with the Murcielago and recent Reventon concept. You can clearly see the family resemblance in the new model with giant air dams and new lights in the front.

The rear has also been altered significantly, with cooling vents, new rear lights and bumper plus a redesigned diffuser all contributing to its changed appearance. In what may be a subconscious nod to its German cousin, the LP560-4’s rear looks a little like the Audi R8’s. The rear lights are now positioned in a ‘Y structure’ and the same motif appears in the front LED daytime running lights.

Sitting inside, the interior resembles that of the regular Gallardo. The seats are set extremely low but leg and shoulder room are generous for both driver and passenger. Lamborghini offers the LP560-4 with either leather or Alcantara upholstery for the seats, and the same options are given for various accents around the cabin.

While the interior hasn’t changed much from the pre-facelift model, the driving experience certainly has. Gone is the instability during high speed cornering and the tendency to understeer that were the negative hallmarks of the Gallardo. The LP560-4’s new aerodynamics package has significant effect at speed, and the front spoiler and rear diffuser work together to improve aerodynamic efficiency by a staggering 31%.
