It's a mistake to think of the Gallardo as the junior Lamborghini,
and this stunning 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo Coupe AWD neatly proves
that smaller and more affordable also meant faster and more fun to
drive. And it still draws the same kind of jaw-dropping attention
of its big brother, so get in and start having some fun.
Thanks to a big infusion of cash, engineering know-how, and
technology from Audi, the Gallardo hit the market as a fully-formed
supercar. No teething pains, no public testing, just a nasty,
high-speed, mid-engined sports car that delivered on its outrageous
looks. And this one is more outrageous than most, wearing vivid
Giallo Midas paint (that's Pearl Yellow to us) and black trim,
you're sure to be the center of attention everywhere you go. But
the Gallardo is more than a poser's car, it's for the serious
enthusiast, and Lamborghini gives you the tools to make it dance.
That insanely expensive paint remains in great condition, with only
a few demerits found on closer examination, but otherwise quite
impressive. Of course, that shouldn't be a surprise, as cars like
this are always well-maintained by passionate enthusiasts, and
having only been driven less than 950 miles per year, it should be
no surprise that it looks so good.
Despite its long, low bodywork and the Italians' reputation for odd
driving positions, the Gallardo benefits from Audi's interior
designers, making it extremely user-friendly. The black-and-yellow
leather seats are beautifully stitched with yellow thread and just
about everything you can touch is covered in some expensive
material. The flat-bottomed steering wheel screams performance and
the big, round gauges are easy to see when you're snapping through
the gears using the conventional and exciting 6-speed manual.
Audi's entertainment system makes it feel contemporary and modern,
the A/C is effective, and the switches feel robust, all welcome
advances over the good old, bad old days of Italian exotics. The
huge windshield controls wind buffeting and the headliner is lined
in elegant fine crushed velvet. Everything is in great condition,
indicative of great care throughout its life and the limited wear
is certainly in line with the mileage. The forward-mounted trunk
isn't much for luggage, but it does house an original tool kit and
a CD changer.
The 5.0 liter V10 engine was built for combat and loves to rev up
as often as possible. V10s are a favorite of Formula One teams, and
with this car, it's easy to see why. It screams to redline almost
faster than you can react, and pulls like a freight train in every
single gear, all the while making the most spine-tingling sounds
this side of the Mulsanne Straight. The V10 has proven itself to be
almost indestructible in spirited use, and you'll never get tired
of the way it hungrily spins through the gears. The 6-speed manual
transmission is quicker than you were on your best day, and the
clutch is built to take a stern kicking, so no worries there.
Obviously, the car has never seen winter weather and you can
probably count the number of rainy days it's seen on one hand.
