    Hi Rossi.

    What about the test of the Carrera GT in the same issue.

    Re: Gallardo Test

    Regarding the car they tested, was it a 6 speed or the e gear?

    Weight being 1612 kg, (3580 lbs)?? There has to be an explanation, that is almost 200 kg heavier then stated by Lambo!! The car is almost 100% aluminum and the 996tt is not yet the Lambo is heavier

    The car was equipped with the e gear.

    Re: Gallardo Test

    Does anyone know when the Gallardo will be tested by any of the American mags: ie Car & Driver? It would be interesting to seeing how the car test numbers pan out!

    Well, you really didn't expect the Gallardo to have less than 1500 kg, did you? Performance is still impressive, even the 996 Turbo Powerkit can't beat the Gallardo in the upper speed range. Not to speak about the fabolous track performance.
    However: I'd like to know how reliable the Gallardo is, former Lamborghini models (with the exception of the Murcielago maybe) don't have a very good reputation regarding reliability.

    Re: Gallardo Test

    The weight stated before by Lamborghini was dry weight.

    1612 kg (EC. directive (Oil and fluids filled, 90% tank of gasoline + 67kg driver and 8kg luggage)

    Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't EC law demand to adverstise the weight with driver, fuel, etc.?
    You're right with your assumption but I don't think it was right to advertise the Gallardo's weight this way.

    Re: Gallardo Test

    Neither do I.

    Re: Gallardo Test

    I am sure a big contirbutor to the Gallardo's weight is it's all wheel drive system. Althought the car is completely aluminum? Hmmm?
    As far as the Gallardo's reliability, do keep in mind that it is backed by Audi. If that even helps any??????????

    Unfortunately that seems to be common for Italian car makers, look at the Stradale, Gallardo etc.

    They should be as honest as Porsche...

    Re: Gallardo Test

    YEAH, as honest as Porsche has been about the CGT's weight, performance numbers, right??
