    Triple Test on Autocar : 997TT vs F430 vs Gallardo .

    august 2 issue,anyone has it ????please scan!

    Quote last section :

    Conclusion : the F430 was definitely the car to be in if you wanted the ultimate wild ride sensation, but it was too flawed in too many areas to live with the others overall - both of which felt more sorted and were plain faster across the ground. Final answer regarding the F430 in this context reads as follows: Great car, great cabin, but the game has moved on since this car rewrote the rulebook just two years ago.

    So in the end it was between the Gallardo and the 911. Clinical, efficient ground coverer versus highly strung but also the surprisingly well resolved V10 supercar. Germany vs Italy - for the second time of asking this summer.

    I drove the 911 again and after the Ferrari, was amazed to discover just how much body movement there is when you drive this car quickly. It's not unchecked movement; in fact, it's always perfectly controlled, and the harder I drove it the more impressive the 911 Turbo became. The way it would just stick under the brakes and out of the corners was genuinely eye-opening, and the sheer speed it could generate down any straight was enough to pull several yard out of the Ferrari in an instant, seemingly with no more than the twitch of your right foot.

    But besides the more sorted Lamborghini the 911 felt (whisper this) antiquated in its demeanour. The Gallardo would carve its way into and through corners with absolute stability and virtually no body roll whatsoever. It also had fantastic body control and amazingly much more adjustability available via the throttle if either end started to run wide. The 911, by comparison, rolled more, suffered from more pitch and dive under acceleration and brakes, sounded utterly unmemorable and felt neither as well balanced not as fluid as the Lambo in the quicker corners.

    And here's the real killer,. When a littler later we accelerated them side by side from a rolling start at 25mph on an empty carriageway up to a speed we won't be publishing here, the Lambo stayed with the Turbo every inch of the way. Take the benefits of the 911 scorching 0-30mph ability out of the equation, in other words, and they're all but identically matched on acceleration. And the fact that when I drove it back down the M4 at the end of the day the Lambo generated less tyre roar than the 911 and felt, by and large, more civilised over the exact same road, well, it just about sealed it for the Gallardo in the end.

    Porsche has produced a quite astonishing piece of engineering in the form of the new 911 Turbo, no question; it's the best of it''s kind so far by the margin. But the Gallardo, revised for 2006, is something else again. Bugatti Veyron aside, it's almost certainly the best supercar in the world right now.

    As an 06 Gallardo SE owner I'm glad to hear the praise and against great competition. You win no matter which of these you own, but its good to see the home team win once an awhile.
