Buy the Gallardo. I saw one today in yellow and I fell in love. It's engine is wonderful and it has looks to kill for, seriously there's no car that looks better. I don't know about maintenance costs though... And I'm sure you'd get a lot of looks though as you'd be strolling around in a supercar.

If you are going to get a Gallardo, I would get look for an 09 or later because that is when the transition to the LP560-4 occurred. The LP560-4 is a great car. I love it! It is far superior to the pre LP560-4 Gallardos. My 2 cents. Good luck.

There are a few questions you should be asking yourself first.
1. Have you ever owned an Italian exotic?
2. Are you financially prepared to cover service costs?
3. Have you checked insurance? Hagerty and Grundy are highly recommended for Exotics
4. Have you ever test driven one? This could either make it or break it for you.
5. Are you financially prepared to cover any repairs (if you purchase a Gallardo out of warranty)?

The list goes on from here.... I also recommend a Lambo forum or ferrarichat (they have a Lambo section) for more questions you may have...

Best of luck...

1. Nope first

2. Yes

3. Yes

4. Yes and I really love the murci but it's super un practical and for the price I'm willing to spend I can't get a nice one. 08 an up

5. Yes

Thanks for the help I appreciate it man

Having not driven the m6 its hard to comment but it is a big car so either of the options above will feel more nimble I woudl think. One more thing - in either case you will encounter the 'supercar' practical issues of low clearance (ok you might get the lift with the gallardo), small turning circle, no space, not being able not see anything out the back etc.

Good luck and a nice choice to have regardless..
Thanks for all the advice I appreciate it.

Using the same warped logic, it will be much more fun to cruise around in my Lamborghini TT from now on.

Go to lambopower.com forums, register and do a search.
Very insightful forum full of gallardo owners.

And if you post, make sure you post very elaborately otherwise they won't take you seriously.

Goodluck!
Gallardo is a car I'm looking to purchase soon

To those saying the Audi R8 is better, why would you want a car that looks like Audi's TTS? Haha, buy the Lamborghini man. It's more than just a supercar, it's also a symbol for success.

We get spoiled with the free maintenance. Once you look into the cost of owning an exotic, you will think twice. I've been down that road a few times and I think I will never revist again.

Owning an exotic isn't about being the "fastest"

what don't people understand about that?

and who says? It all depends on your driving style.


And fyi, there are kevlar clutches available. Do some reading before posting nonsense.

All these haters in here, i love it. It's one thing to hate on MB, but you guys take it to a whole different level. Seriously.

There are some people rolling on originally clutches with 40k plus miles

Stop and go traffic kills the clutch but I'm not too concerned with that living in PA I have plenty of open road to enjoy the car. But like I said when the clutch does go which I know that I'm prepared to pay the 6,500 aprx.

Lol I know!

My dad owned LP560 and bought it new. put 10k miles on it then clutch is gone. That was the time my dad sold the car. Im not a hater, it does look nice and my dad is a lambo fan, he owned lp560 and murcielago. Lambo are really nice but i would rather just drive a car that can be easily driven in daily.
