Expert Quotes:

“Audi-level fit and finish”
Car and Driver

“Leg and shoulder room are generous”
Motor Authority

Paddle shifters can be “too short to reach”
Edmunds

Cramped and difficult to enter and exit, the 2009 Lamborghini Gallardo nonetheless has a high-quality cabin and makes all the right noises.

Supercars are usually tightly confined and meager on storage space, and the Gallardo is no different, Car and Driver observes. The LP560-4’s “freshened interior is a decent step up in terms of refinement, with classier secondary switchgear and Audi-level fit and finish,” they report. However, “the Lambo still suffers from horrendous rearward vision, windshield glare, and a paucity of interior storage space, although there is a nice shelf behind the seats that can fit a purse or gym bag. But it now even comes with a cup holder.”

“The seats are set extremely low,” Motor Authority reports, “but leg and shoulder room are generous for both driver and passenger.” Operating the controls is mostly easy, since the cockpit’s so narrow—but changing gears with the paddle shifters can be an issue. “Up and down gearchanges with any appreciable steering input are hampered by the shift paddles,” Edmunds says. The problem? They’re “fixed to the steering column and too short to reach."

Interior quality is high—distractingly so, to some. “Hugging the outside wall of the banking at Las Vegas Motor Speedway at about 130 miles per hour, we had a thought: 'This dash-top stitching looks perfect,'" Car and Driver recalls.

The Gallardo’s also “loud. Deliciously loud. As loud as legally possible,” Car and Driver concludes. “And thus, perfect.”

Conclusion

Tight, cramped, and with few concessions to comfort, the 2009 Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 is nonetheless just about perfect.

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.
