2008 Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera
Sunday, April 27, 2008
Story by Jason Husman
Today was the semi-annual Lamborghini owner's run in Los Angeles. The day started at the LA Lamborghini service center location. A quick breakfast, oil check and a little drama. One owner misjudged a curb and high centered his Countach. That was quickly remedied with about five guys lifting the front of the car while the owner reversed his car.

Our route was fairly straight forward. First we jumped onto the 405 north, then met up with the 5 north and eventually turned west on the 126. A few miles down the 126 we took a gas and bathroom break. Just before the stop, we caught the attention of the CHP. While taking our midway break, we saw a few CHP roll through the gas station. Luckily, we never saw them again. There was only one all woman car in the mix and I just had to take their picture!

After the break we headed west to Fillmore and then south on the 23. Eventually we ended up in the hills above Malibu on Decker Canyon Road. Once we reached PCH, we went south and ran into the 10 east. The last stop was the dealership for a decent Italian brunch. JoAnn met me, we had some grub and we took another 20 minute test drive in the Superleggera. She also approved the Gallardo! So...

I ordered a 2010 Gallardo LP560/4! Woo Hoo!

Here are some performance stats on the Gallardo. The standard Gallardo has 520hp, weighs 1430kg (dry), has a top speed of 196 mp/h and hits 100 km/h (62 mp/h) in 3.95 seconds. The Gallardo Superleggera has 530hp, weighs 1330kg, has a top speed of 196 mp/h and and hits 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds. The new Gallardo 560/4 has 560hp, weighs 1500kg, has a top speed of 202 mp/h and and hits 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds!
