Rent a Lamborghini Gallardo in Miami, Los Angeles or New York at ELUXE.
The Gallardo is an exotic supercar, thanks to Lamborghini's efforts to keep it fresh and feature-packed.
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. 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.
