2013 Lamborghini Gallardo
2013 Lamborghini Gallardo

New For 2013

The LP550-2 models are unchanged, but the LP560-4 Coupe and Spyder get a new front and rear with a more aggressive look, plus a new wheel-and-tire package. The LP 570-4 Superleggera and Spyder Performante have an optional Edizione Tecnica Package with carbon ceramic brakes, a fixed rear wing, and a choice of two-tone color schemes including orange with black pillars, white with orange pillars, and black with orange pillars.


Visually, the Gallardo is restrained (for a two-seat Italian exotic), with no outlandish bodywork that puts flash ahead of drivability. Still, this is not a conveyance for people looking to travel undercover. The Gallardo replaces Lamborghini’s previous visual lack of restraint with a pure addiction to speed: the Gallardo is available with 550, 560, or 570 hp, all enough to propel the rear- or all-wheel-drive supercar to 60 mph in fewer than four seconds. Stand on the gas long enough and the Gallardo’s speedometer will crest at close to 200 mph. This high-speed machine can be had in a number of packages, too. It has a manual or an automated manual transmission and comes in coupe, convertible, and super-lightweight body styles. The Gallardo’s 5.2-liter V-10 may be less refined than some of its competitors’ engines, but it makes a great noise to match the car’s great looks. It also has great thirst, but supercar performance and good gas mileage have so far proved impossible to reconcile. The all-wheel-drive system in the LP560-4 and the LP570-4 keeps the fun from getting too dangerous. But don’t for a moment think the Gallardo is sensible. It’s bold and striking and makes a serious statement. Various special editions help buyers get specific about what they want to say.


Front and thorax air bags, ABS, and electronic stability and traction control are standard.

Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570 4 Squadra Corse Right Rear View
Another raging bull has been born, as Lamborghini has announced a new Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse. Derived from the Gallardo Super Trofeo car, the Italian supercar maker says it's the most extreme Gallardo in the lineup.
Lamborghini Aventador And Milan Cathedral
At the Leaning Tower of Pisa, I saw Lamborghinis. Atop Rome's Janiculum Hill, I turned from the domes and towers to ogle Lambo scoops and louvers in yellow, lavender, cobalt, teal, and lurid pink. In Bologna's Piazza Maggiore, instead of exploring palaces and the Basilica of San Petronio, I beheld the array of Miuras, Isleros, Espadas, Urracos, Countachs, Diablos, Murciélagos, Gallardos, and Aventadors. Aside from a couple of LM002 bruiser-utilities, the only discordant element was at the nearby 447-year-old fountain, where Neptune clutches the trident that was copied by Mario Maserati when he designed the emblem for his brothers' first production car. On Tuesday, May 7, some 350 Lambor-ghinis gathered at the Piazza Castello, in Milan, for the Grande Giro to celebrate the marque's fiftieth birthday. After testing the 3.5-liter V-12 engine in May 1963, Ferruccio Lamborghini showed his first car, the 350GTV, that autumn at Turin. He began selling its successor, the 350GT, in 1964. The impetus for the car's creation came from Enzo Ferrari, who had spurned Ferruccio Lamborghini's complaints about his Ferrari 250GT's workmanship.

The 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show is shaping up to have some big introductions. According to recent reports, Lamborghini will show off the successor to the Gallardo two-door and Audi will unveil a production-ready version of its Quattro Concept.
Lamborghini Downshift 3
Lamborghini marked its 50th anniversary with a rally across Italy, and in this week's episode of The Downshift, we tag along with Motor Trend's Michael Shaffer as he drives a Gallardo with other new and classic Lamborghinis from around the world.
Lamborghini Gallardo Aventador
When the Grande Giro rolls through Italian villages like Orvieto and towns like Pianoro, even the old women, heads covered with steely curls, thrust out their fists, low and powerful, which is the peoples’ way of demanding that Lamborghini drivers rev their engines. With no introverts among us, we are happy to oblige, and today the valleys and mountainside villages of Tuscany resounded with war cries, as from the back of the throat, of our 10- and 12-cylinder engines: “Aaarrruuunnnggg! Aaarrruuunnnggg!”
