    Gallardo SE Test Drive

    http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/FullTests/articleId=109530

    Interesting handling, braking, accelleration comparisons between it and the F430/Z06/Ford GT. Written by poor and starving automobile journalists with low self esteem issues, they discover that the Gallardo SE has outstanding performance.

    The 997TT will probably bury them all on the street and the track and in all weather.

    The Lambo is the only one that looks like it came from this century. The 997 and Corvette look closer to 1946 than 2006 and the Ferrari F430 looks like it was coughed from a space ship.

    Why cant anyone build one car with the best features of all of them but without their unique design and mechanical faults?


    Re: Gallardo SE Test Drive

    Have always found Gallardo to have weak steering feel/brake pedal feel&fade resistance vs 996TTS/430. And I suspect the heavier Murci is no better on those fronts....

    Agree that 997TT Tip will be world's leading all-weather missle, both in straight-line (finally w/no turbo lag) and in twisties, w/class-leading steering, brakes, traction and active/passive safety...

    Only car I'd choose to complement 997TT Tip is 599, for its perhaps stronger straight-line performance, its paddle-shifters, allegedly outstanding exhaust note....and its 28gall fuel tank (997TT's lim range is annoyingly small for commuting duty)....

    But I'd choose 997TT on days when I plan to crash .....I have my doubts re: F's crash-testing program and how advanced 599's airbag systems really are (first-ever F side/head airbags, only about 5 yrs behind every comparable car mfr )....the downsides of lim produc vols and exclusivity....
