Interesting comparison here of the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera against the Ariel Atom V8. Enjoy!
On a constant throttle, the 5204cc V10 drones away behind your left ear, but the slightest increase in crank speed reminds you why the Gallardo will always be a great car – it also urges you to define Lamborghini in more simplistic terms than you’d normally apply. Strange that a brief blurt of barely silenced V10 should usher such feelings, but then this is a sensuous car, one that makes no secret of its intention to snare your emotions. Beyond any other auto-maker, Lamborghini excels in this single, crucial discipline – it makes the finest emotional cars in the world. Even on a dreary stretch of the M4, the LP570 SL is never more than a few hundred rpm from reminding you of that fact.
