Is it a stark change? No, but did it really need to be? Looks good to me, look forward to seeing it in person

I like it. Sleeker design than the Gallardo, but still Lamborghini attitude.



I still wouldn't own a lambo.

Given the funds to own several dozen similarly priced cars, I would own a Lamborghini. More to the point, though, I'm glad they exist as something I can enjoy as a spectator or virtual driver.

Word.

Make mine one with a big honkin' V12, though. :D

I really, really like it. It's much more elegant than the Gallardo yet still aggressive looking.

More elegant for sure, but not sure if that fits Lambo's image! ;)

I have to echo the sentiment that if I'm in the market to buy a car in that price range, Lambos probably won't be on the top of my list. Now, if I do have too much money to spend and have already purchased all the cars on the top of my list, then of course I'd buy them. :p

I love it. Looks like a manta ray.

Now just slap a big wing on the back and film modern Cannonball Run. :D

It's beautiful and elegant and still has that Lambo look and appeal. Really like the interior... that's how to do it.

How not to do it? See the Huayra. Awful.

I don't get the people saying it doesn't fit the Lambo style. I think the Gallardo is much more benignly styled. That German/Audi influence felt strong in that one.. This has a bit of that eccentricity Lambo's should have. Like a more taught Aventador. I really like it.

And yet I love the Huayra.

I love 'em all. Briefly (2 minutes) flirted with the idea of picking up a very used Gallardo or R8 last year, until I realised that if my wife didn't kill me, the maintenance would. Plus I'd rather buy a Subaru WRC car.

Not too keen from the front. The styling makes it look like the hood is near vertical.

From every other angle it looks good though.

I speak strictly of the interior. It looks like dollar-store-Steampunk to me.

As with the Gallardo, it gets a big meh from me. The rear overhang is way short once more which makes it look odd.

I generally don't get that interested in Lambos but like others, I'm kind of glad that they exist.

I also wouldn't say no to one of these in good shape:

This looks fat. The Gallardo looks svelte.

Oh, and I happen to think that the Gallardo is one of the best-styled cars of the last 20 years.

It looks ok, but here's my problem with any Lambo that isn't the flagship model... Lamborghinis are the gold standard for what an exotic car should be. There are some faster cars out there, but a Lamborghini is a goddamn Lamborghini.

But that leaves the non-flagship Lamborghini in an untenable position. It's a paradox. It's simultaneously the coolest car in the world, but also not the coolest car, because it's the second coolest car.

Sorry, but the non-flagship Lambo to me has always said "I wanted to have the coolest car in the world, but I just couldn't quite swing the truly coolest car, so I got this."

I know exactly what you mean. Hence, the only way to understand cars like the Gallardo is to say that it's the coolest car in the world IN THAT SEGMENT.

Yeah, unless you buy a Gallardo because it's a better car on the track/in the corners (you better be buying the right version in that case) or because you want to put 1500hp into it, you're buying one because you can't afford a Murc/Aventador. I haven't really got the Gallardo for the past 5 years or so. I never thought it was particularly good looking. Other than the Superleggera versions, I don't think it really had the performance to warrant it over a 458. When it was up against the 430, it made a bit more sense. But really, ever since the R8 came out with the V10, I think I'd rather have that car.

Say what you want about the Gallardo, but it has been making them money and satisfying customers for around a decade now. You may not think it's worth getting, but a ton of people in the market do, and that's what matters. So what if you can't afford the flagship? Do you think anyone you actually care about will look down on you?

If just talking For 80k new/used segment....




Track rat would be an Ultima GTR for me.




For merely the 'exotic car' status. 512TR/Testarossa.

I always saw the flagship Lambo as a hyper-retardo-exotico-motherfucker piece of status symbol/art/penile compensation.

Whereas the Gallardo to me was always the long-overdue, more raceable, better handling, lighter and more nimble offering from the company that also happened to make crazy hyper-exotics. And it's true, the Gallardo has performed admirably as a GT3 machine.

If you compare Lamborghini to Ferrari, both companies make the same type of cars (take the F40/50/Enzo and the F360/430/456 for example) and nobody complains that the smaller cars were the "less-cool" Ferraris.

There's not a damn thing wrong with the Gallardo, other than the doors open normally, and that they're almost universally driven by complete toolbelts.

So it's like an E-Class, but more expensive, has only 2 doors, and is generally faster?

Other than the door mention, this easily applies to the Ferrari's also IMO.

That's kinda my point. I just thought the other options in that category were better than the Lambo, especially for the last half decade as the Gallardo got kinda dated looking. It's just my opinion though. I don't look down on people who bought the Gallardo because they wanted a Lambo, but the Murc or Aventador were out or reach, but I think that is a lot of the customers for that car. It's just an opinion, not a judgement.

I love the murc and aventador, and would totally take them over the f12. Because of hips. Gotta have hips.
