“Parking…is a bit of a trick”
Edmunds

There’s little critical information about the safety performance of the 2009 Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4. Who wants to crash-test a $201,000 supercar?

It’s no surprise that, due to its low sales volumes and supercar status, neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) have crash-tested the Gallardo LP560-4.

However, the Gallardo does sport a host of standard safety features, including side and curtain airbags; four-wheel drive; traction and stability control; and a rearview camera.

Visibility is a major issue with this Lamborghini. The flying pillars that support the roof and low, low seating position make the rearview camera a necessity—and still, during the Gallardo test drive in Las Vegas, TheCarConnection.com’s editors had to open the doors to back the car into a parking space. It’s “a bit of a trick,” Edmunds confirms. “You must pull back both paddles together to engage Neutral and remember to set the parking brake so the Gallardo doesn't roll over the valet.”

The Gallardo also has a switch on its dash that raises the front end—to cross speed bumps and to protect it otherwise from street damage.

Conclusion

No crash-test data exists for the 2009 Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4. Parking assistance—electronic and human—is required, thanks to the Lambo’s nearly nonexistent rearward visibility.

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.
