2007 Lamborghini Gallardo

MSRP: $178,550 – $200,600

The Lamborghini Gallardo, (Pronounced Ga-yard-oh) is the Italian supercar maker Lamborghini’s “entry-level” supercar (owned by German Audi), sitting beneath the Murciélago. It is also the first car to feature the new Lamborghini V10 engine – only the third engine made by the firm. 5,000 Gallardos were built in just three years, making it the company’s most-produced model to date. The second-place Diablo took a decade to sell 2,903 units.

The Lamborghini Gallardo is a high-performance exotic super car made in Italy and little brother to the Murcielago.

The Gallardo is available in coupe or Spyder convertible. It has an aluminum body and space frame allowing it a better power to weight ratio. It rides on Pirelli PZero tires mounted on 19-inch wheels and Brembo brakes that have eight-piston front calipers and four-piston rear calipers. It is powered by a 520 hp 5.0-liter V-10 controlled by a six-speed gearbox with ‘E-gear’ paddle shifters. The Gallardo is full-time all-wheel drive.
