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 2009 Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 gives auto writers from across the Web—and the editors of TheCarConnection.com—the chance to exercise some vocabulary to describe its fantastic, outrageous shape. The newest version of the Gallardo has tuned out some of its excessive gills and slits, leaving a sophisticated, exciting shape underlined by LED driving lights and punctuated by a big glass panel that lays bare a big performance heart.

The new Gallardo breathes supercar performance from each of its 10 cylinders and all four of its driven wheels. At its core is a 552-horsepower V-10 engine that can hurtle it to 60 mph in about 3.7 seconds, on its way to a stratospheric top speed of more than 200 mph. Hyper speeds are matched to stable four-wheel-drive handling and a quick-shifting e-gear transmission with three modes and paddles for video-game-style operation (a traditional manual is available but rare).

Cramped and difficult to enter and exit, the 2009 Lamborghini Gallardo nonetheless has a high-quality cabin and makes all the right noises. The interior’s slathered in leather, but it’s tough to slide in even under the flat-bottomed steering wheel. There’s no vast expanse of room nor is there much storage inside, but making up for it all is the rippling noise created right behind your head.
