TCC Rating
How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

The Basics:

The Lamborghini Gallardo is nearing the end of its model run, with an all-new model, likely called the Cabrera, waiting in the wings. Despite its impending retirement, the Gallardo is still a relevant supercar, thanks to Lamborghini's efforts to keep it fresh and feature-packed.

A range of special editions with different engine tunes and drive configurations are available for the end of the Gallardo's run. Some of the examples include the new track-inspired Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse, the Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera, the LP 560-4, the LP 550-2, the LP 570-4 Spyder Performante, the LP 560-4 Spyder, and the LP 550-2 Spyder.

As is always the case with a modern Lamborghini, the first number indicates metric horsepower, and the second the number of drive wheels. The other descriptors are equally simple: a Spyder is a convertible, and the Superleggera and Performance tags translate from Italian to "super light" and "high performance", respectively.

Whatever the power output or drive configuration, all Gallarados use the same basic 5.2-liter V-10 engine. Models with the -2 designation don't get all-wheel drive, but all of the other available models do. The -2 models get rear-wheel drive instead. All models come standard with the "e gear" robotized sequential transmission with paddle-shift.

The Gallardo is quick: it can get to 60 mph in as little as 3.4 seconds and carry on to a top speed over 200 mph.

Despite the emphasis on statistics and capability, however, the Gallardo, like every other Lamborghini, is about much more than performance. It's about design, style, and presence; it's about the way it makes you feel and the way it turns heads. The Gallardo doesn't get the dramatic scissor-opening doors the Aventador does, but its low, angular profile and barking exhaust note work hand in hand.

Inside the Gallardo, you'll find a compact, high-performance-themed space. There's not much room for loose items or Big Gulps, and in the front-mounted trunk, there's barely space for a weekend's luggage. Getting in and out isn't easy due to the low stance, though Spyder models make the transition more vertical than horizontal, easing the process. Despite the lack of space and creature comforts, the cabin is well-appointed, with quality materials and precise construction.

It's far from practical, but you already knew that. The question is whether, after nearly a decade on the market, the Gallardo still cuts the striking figure you're after--especially with a replacement waiting in the wings.

Likes:

  • Forcefull acceleration thanks to all-wheel drive
  • Firm suspension
  • Exotic looks
  • Highly personalizable
  • Many special editions

Dislikes:

  • Entry and exit can be difficult
  • Somewhat rough ride
  • Design is starting to age--just a bit
  • Likely to be replaced soon, instantly dating it
