Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4: Road test report

Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4
Nice, short road test report with the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4.

Some might call it the “poster effect”—when you finally see a Lamborghini in person after years of only seeing them on posters, the effect is childlike giddiness. The jump from wall art to reality is mesmerizing, and the crazy origami spaceship with Lamborghini badges sitting in our parking lot doesn’t disappoint. Paint one metallic white—sorry, make that Bianco Monocerus, which literally means “white single-horned beast”—and it amplifies the folded-paper look of the latest Gallardo LP560-4.

A new exhaust keeps the engine sounds subdued while cruising, but stomp on the throttle, and the engine’s throat opens to unleash the V-10’s race-car voice. A wailing Lamborghini underfoot should qualify as therapy: For a moment, we forget that we work under fluorescent lights in cubicles the color of gloom. There are times when we actually wish the Lambo was just a bit slower so we could revel in the music for longer than bursts lasting only a few seconds.
