The Gallardo’s party trick is its lightness and perfect balance, which rewards the driver who pushes it hard on the track. The 5.2-liter V10 is eager to be revved until the 8,000 rpm redline and delivers a healthy 543 hp and 398 lb-ft of torque. With suspension borrowed from Valentino Balboni edition and ideally suited for the track driving, this supercar can jump to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds and top 198 mph.
However, that is not all. Since the Gallardo LP550-2 is designed to capture the essence of supercar driving making this Italian monster even more engaging. Gunning the LP550-2 down the track and shifting gears is an unbelievably satisfying analog experience that the real drivers crave in this digital age.
