The 2009 Lamborghini Gallardo is significant for several reasons. One is that it is the first model to have a new, 5.2 L-direct injection V10 engine. The said engine replaces the old, 5-liter V10 powertrain that had been a fixture in Lamborghini Gallardo since 2004.
With a more powerful engine, the 2009 Lamborghini Gallardo can produce 553 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque. The engine is paired to a six-speed manual transmission, with an e-gear or six-speed sequential shift manual transmission optional.
This model had EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of 12 mpg for city driving and 20 mpg for highway driving.
There weren’t a lot of changes to the 2010 Lamborghini Gallardo. Lamborghini kept the 5.2 liter, V10 engine that it had introduced a year earlier.
Lamborghini also released a limited edition Valentino Balboni coupe in 2010. The coupe, released under the Gallardo line, was named after the man who had spent more than 40 years at Lamborghini. He is also credited for designing the Gallardo.
Around 250 of the said coupes which were of the rear-wheel drive were produced during that year.
The 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo, meanwhile, comes in various trims like Superlegerra, Valentino Balboni, Spyder, Spyder Performante, and Bicolore.
The base model is powered by a 5 liter, V10 engine with 552 horsepower and 398-pound feet of torque. It is paired with a permanent all-wheel drive and six-speed manual. It can zoom in from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 4 seconds, with a top speed of 201 miles per hour.
This model is equipped with 19-inch wheels, rear spoiler, bi-xenon headlights, dual-zone automatic climate control, and iPod integration.
The 2013 model is powered by a 5.2 liter, V10 engine which can produce 570 horsepower. It is directed to a four-wheel and two-wheel drive system.
There are also several edition special versions of the 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo. The Super Trofeo Stradale, for one, has an adjustable rear spoiler and Alcantara interior.
The Gallardo Superleggera, meanwhile, has carbon-ceramic brakes and unique rear wing. It also comes with three special color schemes.
The Spyder Performante and Performante Edizione Tecnica, on the other hand, are convertibles.
The final model of the Lamborghini Gallardo was for the 2014 model year. It was powered by a 5.2 liter, ten cylinder engine with 550 horsepower. It is available in convertible and coupe versions. It comes in two wheels and four-wheel drivetrains. There are six trim levels available in the 2014 Lamborghini Gallardo.
Although production of the Lamborghini Gallardo has stopped, there’s no question it remains one of the most popular sports cars of all time.
