2008 Lamborghini Gallardo 2dr Coupe AWD (5.0L 10cyl 6AM)


Review

The 2008 is the last year of the original Gallardo, several deficiencies from earlier years were addressed and overall it is the greatest car I have ever owned. The e-gear is great (although not quite as good as the 09 560-4 that i recently drove) and I was always a 6-speed guy. Only real issue I have is all the attention it draws....but it's a Lamborghini, so I suppose it comes with the territory. I am surprised by the one negative review, cause ultimately calling a 200k car a 'good deal' seems flawed from the start...gas mileage stinks, they are largely impractical and wicked extreme in nearly every way...but it's a Lamborghini!!! and it's wonderful.


Best Features

Overall exterior design - the thing is a beautiful car. Interior design - I love the Audi touch (while some are not fans), but its German engineering with Italian Style. The glass engine bonnet is crucial. Lastly - the power...there are always faster cars, but the 08 Gallardo engine is outstanding.


Worst Features

Well the 09 560-4 is faster, e-gear shifts like butter, there are 2 launch modes, etc. So I suppose they already improved anything that I would have recommended here. Only other improvement that would be nice is getting more than 10mpg...but then again you don't buy one to save money :-)

2008 Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder 2dr Convertible AWD (5.0L 10cyl 6M)


Review

Beats the Ferrari...I've owned 2--no question about it. Improved horsepower, AWD and very exotic lines--a real head turner. Frankly, more fun to drive and the e-gear is a must! Design allows to be a daily driver if that's what you want. And last...the sound--there is nothing else like it and you'll have to hear it to understand.


Worst Features

None really.

2008 Lamborghini Gallardo 2dr Coupe AWD (5.0L 10cyl 6AM)


Review

The new Gallardo did not in fact drive at my expectations. Lamborghini did not change anything.... The shifter gets stuck sometimes, which gets me very frustrated.


Best Features

The exterior styling is not bad at all, but that doesn't change the fact that the car itself is not a good deal.


Worst Features

new features that the old one doesn't have, better torque, and better interior design.
