WR TV: 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo

This week we’ve got the keys to the best-selling Lamborghini in the company’s history. Powered by a 5-liter V10 dishing out 493 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque, the “baby Lambo” could be had with either a six-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed automated manual gearbox.

Update: 2015 Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 Driven on Street and Track

After a decade-long run and 14,000 sales – almost half of the total number of Lamborghinis sold in the company’s 51 year history – the Gallardo is finally being put out to pasture, and the Huracan has stepped in to take its place. Its all-new aluminum and carbon fiber chassis, active suspension and a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission all point the way to a thoroughly modernized driving experience on paper, but what’s it like behind the wheel?

Overview: 2015 Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4

Over the course of nearly a decade of production, Lamborghini has built more than 14,000 Gallardos of various configurations, making it the most successful model in the manufacture’s history. Nicknamed the “baby Lambo”, the Gallardo shared the limelight initially with its bigger brother, the Murciélago, and more recently with the Murciélago’s successor, the Aventador, as Lamborghini’s volume sales models. Clearly, any successor to the Gallardo’s throne has big shoes to fill. But the Huracan, which Lamborghini unveiled today ahead of its debut at the 2014 Geneva Auto Show, looks to be up to the task.

Is This The New Lamborghini Cabrera?

Set to debut for the 2015 model year, the successor to the Lamborghini Gallardo has been given the rendering treatment by illustrator Marco van Overbeeke. Judging by these illustrations, it would appear that the Cabrera is sizing up to be quite a worthy replacement to the baby Lambo indeed.

First Look: 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo

The Lamborghini Gallardo has been a highly successful model for the Italian brand. Part of that success is largely due to the amount of work that’s been done to keep it fresh, with subtle tweaks and new editions every few years. The 2012 Paris Motor Show is just another example of Lambo’s attempts to keep its most-affordable car young.

First Look: 2012 Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Spyder

There was more to the LP550-2 Spyder than taking a very large can opener to a Balboni though. A convertible changes vehicle dynamics dramatically, so Lamborghini was forced to retune the dampers, tweak the aerodynamics, and revise the electronic stability control.

Lamborghini Greenlights Limited Run Of Sesto Elemento

Lamborghini has officially given the go-ahead to the Sesto Elemento, the stunning concept car that debuted at last year’s Paris Motor Show. Packing a 570 horsepower V-10 into a body that only weighs 2202 pounds blesses the Lambo with a power-to-weight ratio of only 3.85 pounds-per-horsepower. That means exceptional performance, with 62 miles per hour coming on in 2.5 seconds.

2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4: What Is A Lamborghini?

The best automotive brands have established some distinctive idea of what they are in the head of the typical enthusiast. This idea, or more likely set of ideas, gets built up, often over decades, through reading about, seeing and discussing the brand. For many enthusiasts, actually driving the cars is small part of what forms that brand image. After all, how many people have driven a McLaren or a Bugatti or, as is our case in point, a Lamborghini? Even among more common performance cars, many enthusiasts have no direct experience with a Viper or a 911 GT3 or even an M5. The result, we’ve noticed over time, is that many enthusiasts hold an idea of brands and models that don’t have much connection with the reality of what is rolling off the assembly line

Spy Shots: Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera Spyder

Here is yet another new iteration of the Lamborghini Gallardo being flogged around the Nürburgring. This model looks to be the open-top Spyder version of the LP 570-4 Superleggera, which was unveiled at the Geneva Auto Show back in April.

Driven: 2010 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera

More torture for us. We are now being forced to do nearly thirty laps all-out on a gorgeous circuit in southern Spain in Lamborghini’s latest hot performer, the 2011 Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera. You may recall the previous generation Gallardo limited-run Superleggera that we tried in early 2007 and that was a goodie, but it didn’t honestly get the full-on treatment and those shortfalls just slightly flawed the drive experience.
