The Gallardo Coupe is often considered the gold standard in exotic automobiles. They possess unparalleled style and coolness not matched or seen in other cars. It’s like sitting in the cockpit of a Stealth Fighter jet. In particular the Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk, a twin engine single seat attack stealth fighter developed by Lockheed for the United States Air Force. Arguably one of the coolest looking jets ever in aviation and technologically advanced. It has hexagonal and precise angles that look mean, focused, and just all around cool. The Gallardo takes a lot of visual inspiration and cues from that plane along with its own history of vehicles. It is no wonder the Gallardo is Lamborghini’s best selling model ever and is their flagship model in many respects like the 911 for Porsche. But the Gallardo is no Porsche, its a Lamborghini !! Men are in awe when they see one and Women, will be swoon and well lets just say you will impress them without having to say one word.
The Gallardo is named after a famous breed of fighting bull. It is powered by a 5.2 Liter Naturally Aspirated V10 Gas Engine. It has double overhead camshafts. For those who don’t know, for high performance cars, there are generally three types of engines. Turbocharged, Supercharged, and Naturally Aspirated engines. Will discuss how they are different in more detail in a forthcoming article but for now for simplicity sake, a naturally aspirated engine is an internal combustion engine where air intake comes only from atmospheric pressure. Turbocharger and Superchargers rely on forced induction which means using another instrument to deliver compressed air to the intake of an internal combustion engine. For Turbochargers, that would be a turbine which is a rotary mechanical device that forces additional air into the combustion chamber to increase the engine’s power and for Superchargers, that would be an air compressor that increases pressure and density of air delivered to the engine.
But all technicalities aside, driving all three types of vehicles with respective engines do feel and sound very different. And although depending on the car, there are some virtues of superchargers and especially turbochargers, but overall myself and many who know about cars will have to strongly argue that naturally aspirated engines are the best. As in most things in life, things that require force or manipulation is substandard to the real thing. Superchargers and Turbochargers feel somewhat artificial and forced. But the Gallardo, with its naturally aspirated gas engine, the power feels and sounds so real because well because it is..There is no other feeling like it. It’s one of those things in life you just must experience. Many are amazed when they look at a Lamborghini Gallardo but you must actually sit and drive in one to satisfy your own senses.
