2006 Lamborghini Gallardo Overview

Quickly rising to become Lamborghini's top-selling car, the Gallardo adds a Spyder convertible and a Special Edition coupe to its 2006 lineup. Billed as the more affordable Lambo, the 2006 Gallardo is a racer with practical everyday considerations -- it even features 4-wheel drive. Its mid-mounted engine is a 5.0-liter, 40-valve V10 version of the Audi V8 that gets a 27-hp boost this year to 520-hp. This is paired with a standard 6-speed manual or an E-gear sequential shift 6-gear. This gearbox has been given shorter gear ratios for a more responsive ride. Also new in 2006 is a retuned double wishbone suspension for even more precise handling. The all-wheel drive is split 30/70 front/back, but adjusts to road conditions.

The new 2006 Gallardo Spyder convertible is a soft-top that retracts in under 20 seconds into the engine compartment. A rear glass window can be left up to act as a wind deflector. The convertible also adds rollover protection to the Gallardo's ABS brakes and electronic stability system. The 2006 Gallardo SE Coupe offers a sportier suspension, a sport steering wheel, P Zero Corsa tires, a car cover, two-tone paint, interior stitching that matches the body color, and a rearview camera. Seats in all the Gallardos are leather. Dual front and side airbags, folding power mirrors, and a CD-changer are other features.

The 2006 Gallardo is able to have all-wheel drive while still hitting 0-60 in four seconds thanks to its aluminum body parts. Its sharp angles, steep windshield, low height, and side scoops lend a menacing air to its profile. A rear spoiler can be adjusted electronically. The 2006 Lamborghini Gallardo is fast, racy, and fun and perfect for driving enthusiasts with a few extra dollars to throw around (lottery winners, take note). Those who have driven the Gallardo say the steering and handling are top-notch. Complaints are usual of any sports car: no real trunk and poor gas mileage. The cab forward design throws passengers right into the wheel well, so long-legged people will not be comfortable (but probably won't pass up a ride, anyway!). Owners say the interior material quality is poor.
