    Porsche VS Lambo VS Ferrari

    In the new mags from the british press (Autocar and CAR)
    The following group tests are available:
    GT3 vs Gallardo vs 360 (All manual)
    Turbo vs Gallardo vs 360CS (all manual except the CS of course)
    The Gallardo wins in both mags.
    I haven't read the articles yet but I thought you'd be interested.
    IMO, I think the Brit press might be overenthousiastic about the Lambo.
    I'm Looking forward to drive it myself to have an opinion. The french press hated it (unanimously! mainly bc the V10 is totally uncharismatic apparently and the car too soft ).
    To me, on the paper, after I read it was the A8 V8 with two additionnal cylinders, I thought, ok, this is just an exotic looking 996 Turbo then, but on the other hand, it's good the car gets Audi quality, it's a balance...
    I still think the CS is the most desirable of the lot by far, more than the Gallardo IMO, but it's a track car.
    To me (I'd need an all purpose reliable car) I'd do a test drive of the Gallardo first and then chose between the 996Turbo X50 and the Gallardo.
    Fanch.

    I saw and heard the Gallardo in a car mag in german tv - the sound is incredible!
    The car sounds like a Rallye-Audi Sport Quattro!
    Ok, the exhaust might be a louder, but this is also true for the 996 tt.
    If i had to chose a car for road and track, I'd take the lambo if its weight is as low as told by Lamborghini.

    A 360 CS is a beautyful machine - but you've got to own a Gallardo, a E55 T AMG and a Caterham R500 before buying this sunday-morning-machine.

    Well, the British press might be overenthusiastic at first sight, but as far as I can remember their opinion has always been enthusiastic as well as very realistic. E.g. they prefered the F355 instead of the 993 TT, switched over to the Modena when it came out and shortly after declared the 996 TT as the best in its class.

    So when they praise the Gallardo, I think we can count on it and that will give Ferrari an even harder time in the near future (after SL 55 - Maranello and BMW-Williams in F1 )

    Yes I agree with you on that one Rossi.
    The brit press is regarded as one of the best in the industry and also the Brit clients are known to read the local press.
    A 360 buyer in France never reads Sport Auto (in general of course) whereas in England, IMO, it's a driver's country, people know their car.
    Example, I went to Maranello Sales (The biggest Ferrari dealer in the world) the week after Clarkson killed the Maserati on BBC2 primetime. He said it was basically an enormous piece of crap and that only the engine was great.
    The next day, the Maranello sales director told me that more than half of their Maserati clients called to ask what this was all about!!!
    So to come back to the point, brit press usually gets it right, which is why I really want to try that little bull! It's made me very curious!
    Fanch.

    what i love about the brit press so much (i'm a subscriber of evo and autocar and read car as well) is that they are very emotional and honest. if e.g. they are of the opinion that a car is ugly, they write it down. german press would NEVER do this.

    That's true. In case of the Bangle design German press at least starts to critisize (and every word is true), but the difference to the British press is, that the Brits really say what they think and not try to be diplomatic. And that's what I want to hear and mostly how I think about the topic. And that's also why you can identify so easily with British car magazines and their opinions.
