2005 Lamborghini Gallardo Coupe Denver Review
Denver Introduction to Lamborghini Gallardo:
The Lamborghini Gallardo is one of the most popular and exquisite brand of sports car made in modern era. The many variants under this category were made by the makers of Lamborghini from the year 2003 to 2013. The car is named after a very famous breed of fighting bulls and has some of the most extraordinary features that you can get in a sports car.
The first generation of cars from the Gallardo family came with 5 liter 90 degree V-10 engines with 4961 CC. With the car, you get the options of two transmissions, one being the conventional 6-speed manual transmission, while the other one is semi-automatic robot-manual with an advanced six speed electro hydraulic control system. The main design of the car was designed by famous designer Luc Donckerwolke and based the design on the famous 1995 Cala by another famous Italian designer Italdesign Giugiaro.
For the model year 2005, Lamborghini introduced a lot of changes to the Gallardo car to specifically counter some dire criticisms which garnered from the owners as well as the press. These criticisms were mainly based on the very limited edition of Gallardo SE. The sturdy exhaust system was then changed to an even more sporty one which had a specially designed flap in order to make it super quiet in city roads, the old suspension was then revised, a new and improved steering rack was then fitted, the basic engine power was also amplified by 20 hp to a maximum of a whopping 520 metric horsepower. The biggest change that was made was a general lowering of gearing, particularly in 1st to the 5th. The end result was a much superior car which handled and turned better, even sounded better under extreme and full throttle and then the lower gearing and extra power made an already famous and fast sports car into an even faster one.
Lamborghini Gallardo Denver review:
The Gallardo’s beautiful body takes pretty awesome class geometry and makes it go wild with imaginations. There are more arcs and angles and trapezoids then even you can think of. The incredible cab-forward roofline design truly makes it look like two different cars merging in one single body with the curvy one above overhauling the more sturdy and boxy one below.
If you notice, even the starter motor sounds faster in Gallardo. You will just need to turn the key and you will feel the rush of the 303 cubic inch DOHC V-10 with 40-valve ignite. The engine of Gallardo settles very quickly on 1000-rpm idle.
The e gear system which sports six-speed system comes from the famous makers Marelli. Paddles on the great column ask for various shifts while hydraulic-controlled mechanical fingers change the different cogs in as little as a mere 0.0012 second. A button placed in the left of the column selects the reverse gear with great precision. The sharp and beautifully elegant bark of the computer-controlled throttle accompanies each and every downshift.
In the full-auto mode, the transmission of Gallardo is always one single step behind, downshifting after you step on it and upshifting as you spot any gap through the traffic. When the driver takes control of the paddles, you can feel the smooth and jerk free operation. But while parking you will need some extra precision. At that moment, the clutch engages fully and the vehicle lurches forward. If you push the gas pedal one time too many, then your car will hit the concrete.
If you are looking for the fastest and the easiest exit, Lamborghini recommends you of switching off traction control and then selecting the first gear and the smooth sport-shift mode for sudden and quick changes. The computer of Gallardo lets the engine to get an awesome 2400 rpm. You will feel the time stop around you, and the, eventually, the scenery around you will blur in a white stagnant sheet.
On the upshift paddle, you can get to a whopping 60 mph in mere 4.1 seconds and get to the point of 118 mph in just 12.4 seconds. The car can get you to 192 mph pretty easily and then the speedometer needle may twist a little. The cross-drilled rotors and the calipers which are packed within the 4 Pirelli slabs can easily slice 70 mph in 158 feet and can repeat it without any real effort. Apart from these, the car is really heavy and muscular. The weight of the car clocks at around 3560 pounds. But still you will not feel the weight while driving and a smooth joyride will accompany you whenever you take out your beloved Gallardo for a drive. Lamborghini has also lathered a little cushy frosting on the very sturdy and rock solid suspension of the Gallardo.
The Gallardo shows great performance even in Euro-bullet class. This beauty accelerates to 60 mph in only 0.3 second. The performance of some other sports cars by the other renowned manufacturers come short to Gallardo in many aspects, the looks being the one and the seamless performance being the other among many.
The doors of the Gallardo swing nearly perpendicular on the normal hinges fitted horizontally. The seats are also designed to suit your comfort and you don’t need to be a gymnast to climb out of it. The steering column of Gallardo manually tilts and also telescopes to give you a better view. You will also get the extra headroom to provide you with the extra comfort for fast and long driving.
