    F430 or Gallardo LP560

    I've driven the 430 and this weekend I will get a chance to drive the Gallardo.  I'm curious to what you guys think.


    Re: F430 or Gallardo LP560

    be sure to take a few photos

    I'm interested in reading your comparison review later if you care to share your opinion that is

    Enjoy the ride in the Gallardo !

    Re: F430 or Gallardo LP560

    The LP560 should be more impressive on such short aquaintance as it is considerably more powerful. I think you'll find it a more flexible engine with torque available from far lower down the rev range. The 430 needs revs before it lifts it's skirts and dashes for the horizon but it counters with the sweeter steering of the two. Visibility is better in the Ferrari but the Gallardo has a real sense of occassion due to it's cockpit layout being so different to other cars - a low dash with the windscreen base seemingly a long way ahead of you. Four wheel drive also makes the Lambo feel more planted but less involving.

    It'll be interesting to read your thoughts on the transmissions if both cars tested are running the same type, either manual or paddleshift. If paddle shift the 430 should win out though the 560 has a much improved version of egear.

    If you get the chance try out a 430 Scuderia. It really is in a different league from a regular 430.

    Have fun

    i think the lp560 is way cooler than the f430....any lambo is cooler than a ferrari imo....

    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

    I am no expert in Lamborghini, but the sound of the engine is perhaps the best around.

    Also I am attracted to Lamborghini because there is German engineering input into it that can't be a bad thing at all.

    German technology + Italian temperament = excellent combination Smiley

    Re: F430 or Gallardo LP560

    The 430 is on its way out, the LP-560 is still a new car...

     exactly what i was going to say. if you're not willing to wait for the 458 then go with the 560, the 430 is already at the end of its life cycle. on the other hand the 560 is a new car.


    Re: F430 or Gallardo LP560

    Scuderia? Maybe. F430? Not really. LP-560? Well, why not?!

    Re: F430 or Gallardo LP560

    Thank you for your input, very excited to drive the LP-560 this weekend.  I know the f430 is on the way out, but seeing as this would be my first Ferrari, I doubt I would be able to get my hands on a 458 without waiting a very prolonged amount of time, however if i bought a f430 I would try and get on the "list" for a 458.  Also going to check out a Scuderia.  Ive always been bias to Ferrari, but from reading reviews and test driving the LP-560 this weekend may sway me towards a Lamborghini.


    Re: F430 or Gallardo LP560

    I have driven both and found the  560 bulkier to drive. I am sure it had more to do the 4 wheel drive. The 430 has more of sport car feeling. The 560 does get attention but not more so than the 430. If it matters, the Gallardo has very poor resale history.

     Did you also consider the Scuderia? Of course the Scuderia would not be suited as a daily driver. However, my ranking between Scuderia and LP560-4 would be clearly in favour of the Scuderia Smiley


    Re: F430 or Gallardo LP560

    On appearance alone I would take the 560-4 over a 430, but it's also a better drive. You can't go wrong with a Lambo...


    Re: F430 or Gallardo LP560

    You should see prices too, hearing the Lambo can be had for a very low price...


    Re: F430 or Gallardo LP560

    Lambo all the way!
