    Gallardo VS 996TT

    Today is the 1st time I push a bit hard on my Gallardo. Under the sport mode, I shift every gear at 5k rpm until the 6th gear. Very obviuos the acceleration is faster than 996TT and it feel more stable too. The wind noise is low comparitively. The braking also is very good, it is better the 6 piston caliper on my 996TT. I almost have no complian about the Gallardo except the rear vision.

    Do you own a 996TT with Tiptronic? Otherwise the perceived difference in acceleration is most likely due to sound and other "soft" factors as the true delta in acceleration (0-200!) is less than 1 sec (13.8 vs. 14.6, correct me if I am wrong). I.e. both cars are nearly equally quick.

    A 996TT with X50 (450hp, manual shift) should deliver the same acceleration as the Gallardo. At least that has been confirmed by various tests in the German press.

    Re: Gallardo VS 996TT

    By looking at the figures, Gallardo is not much faster than 996TT. But today when I was driving at the same road, the difference is obvious; especially at high speed. Mine is not a X50 version so I have no idea about it. However, I will ask my friend to drive his 996TT and compare the acceleration with my Gallardo and see what will be the result.

    Not trying to rain on your parade but the Gallardo speedometer is GROSSLY inaccurate. The italian car mag Automobilismo recorded an indicated 331 km/h on the speedo, when the car was actually doing 309 km/h. Get a GPS and track your true speeds throughout the test road.

    Re: Gallardo VS 996TT

    I believe the 996TT X50 is a bit faster than the Gallardo and like Crash said get a GPS and track your true speeds...and please do share the results with us

    Re: Gallardo VS 996TT

    saw a gallardo on the road the other day, very slick. i prefer it over the murcielago.

    Re: Gallardo VS 996TT

    I am planning to go to tarck day in Dec. Let see if I can get a GPS to track the speed and time.
    But it's quite strange to me that the speedometer has that much of difference.

    Re: Gallardo VS 996TT

    Me too!
    More "petite", less of a monster I guess. Looks best in black IMO.

    Re: Gallardo VS 996TT

    I find the Gallardo quite attractive as well.

    However, if the performance figures are quite similar, let me ask you which is more fun to drive and which gives you a better feeling to drive. That in itself is a more important characteristic than a few seconds difference in acceleration to speeds which cannot be attained in HK! Perhaps this is only true while driving, but not when on message boards.

    Re: Gallardo VS 996TT

    honestly the Gallardo's looks never grew on me Given the choice I'd take the 996TT X50 over it anyday

    Re: Gallardo VS 996TT

    had both the gallardo and the turbo with the factory power kit(manual).
    the gallardo is quicker to its top speed (never managed higher than 310)but the turbo goes to 315.
    the turbo scores higehr in my book as an allround package,
    by the way the manual gear shifter on the gallardo is the better choice for fun and day to day driveability(see uphill start/stops and slopy parking exits)

    Re: Gallardo VS 996TT

    hi Marco,
    And welcome to Rennteam.
    It's not the first time I read the Gallardo is better in manual, well depends on people's tastes I guess.
    But Autocar said the only problem about the manual gearbox is the way the three pedals are setup, they are kinda off centre, would you agree? If yes, is that actually uncomfortable or easy to adapt to?
    Cheers.

    Re: Gallardo VS 996TT

    I had tested the top speed of 996TT (tiptronic) and Gallardo (e-gear)at the same road, they were 301kph and 320kph. However, when the speed reach around 280kph, Gallardo definately accelerate faster.

    Did you used some proper device for measuring the speed, or are you talking about the numbers shown on the speed cluster?
    I'm asking this because I manage to see 301Kph on the speed cluster on my 996 C2 Cab, so i was hopping the turbo to make at least + 20Kph more.

    Re: Gallardo VS 996TT

    301kph is from the digital speedometer of 996TT, but I heard that at very high speed the speedometer is not accurate, especially analogue one.
    What device I can use to check the REAL speed?

    Could you please let us know the precise acceleration numbers you are comparing? Many thanks.
