Would you pay £169,555 for a Gallardo LP560-4? We would…
16 May 2008

We were first to bring you a drive of the new Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4, and now you can decide which boxes to tick as well. Carbon-ceramic brakes, which no self-respecting Lambo owner would be without, will cost a whopping £9729. Sat-nav will set you back a further £1614, and the biggest alloys available will cost a further £3243. Sports set-up gets you stiffer springs but no loss in ride height; it costs a further £1390. Finally, the new e-gear transmission that improves so much on the old e-gear gearbox wears a price tag of £6249.All of these options go on top of the list price of £147,330, meaning that your Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 could easily cost £169,555. Still, that looks cheap next to the £172,500 Ferrari 430 Scuderia.We’ll have to wait until we can get our hands on a UK-spec LP560-4 before we can compare it to Ferrari’s sublime, hardcore 430, but even so we’d need no persuasion to sign a £170k cheque in return for the best Gallardo yet.

Our Verdict

Lamborghini Gallardo

The Lamborghini Gallardo is the full supercar sensation with sublime handling

  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
