    gallardo test drive

    hi everybody ,today i went and test drove a gallardo ,i just wanted to give my my impressions , from the outside and inside ,i love it ,suspension is very comfortable(for a supercar) ,i felt it can easily be driven everyday ,engine sound is amazing ,but on the performance point ,i was expecting a lot more ,gear ratios are sooooo long ,until 120kph i was asking myself if the car had a defect ,but after that you feel great power ,but nothing to compare with my previous 996tt ,that in my opinion felt much more powerful ,not to talk about the x50 i also test drove.i was so intrigued that i made a small research on perf. of both cars ,and i discovered an article in wich they measured the perf. of a 996tt x50 with a murcielago ,and guess what ,there is not even one figure that givs an advantage to the murcielago(0-60,0-160,0 to 200) the porsche was superior all along..i will try to scan this article..

    I haven't had chance to drive Murci, but what always amazes me about the 4000lb+ beast is its very impressive N-ring time. Admittedly, given the width of the Murci, I suspect it's more of a track-only car than a mountain twisties car.

    I don't know how that is possible? I had a 996TT for
    24000 miles. Mine was modifed to 594 HP so it was quicker than my G car.
    BUT NOT BEFORE THE MODS!!! The G car even sticks to the road better! A superior car in EVERY respect!!

    Re: gallardo test drive

    i too have driven the gallardo about a month ago, it was an excellent car, but i had a few issues.

    i didn't like the egear paddles, they felt a bit flimsy, nothing like the VERY solid ones in the murcielago.

    handling was, as expected, delightful, and with 4WD, on a mid engine platform, one can expect the best of the motoring world, especially for lamborghini.

    the real dealbreaker for me is the interior. reminds me of an audi, and doesnt give the sense of occasision the exterior commands.

    however, overall it is a superb car, and if it is reliable, is a genuine TT alternative.
