The Audi R8 is closely related to the Gallardo, sharing a similar engine and all-wheel drive performance, but its looks are more restrained and its behavior is a touch more refined.
The Porsche 911 is the best all-around car in this bunch, with practicality the others can't attain--while delivering the same thrilling levels of performance toward the upper end of its model range, though it doesn't cut quite the same figure as the more exotic alternatives.
The Ferrari 458 Italia is the Gallardo's closest competitor on supercar status and price, but without all-wheel drive it lacks some of the all-weather friendliness of the Lamborghini--though it replaces it with even higher performance levels and superior handling.
Chevy's new Corvette Stingray isn't nearly as expensive, exotic, or egotistical as the Gallardo, but it's close on performance, making it a relative bargain.
