2008 Lamborghini Gallardo

The idea of someone willing to pay $250,000 for a Lamborghini is hard to understand, but the 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera is worth every penny. And trust me! Even the most skeptical people will be impressed by this amazing supercar.

This 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo is a two-seat car and one of the hard-core models that helped the Lamborghini brand to enter the supercar level. The 2008 Superleggera uses the carbon-fiber as main material and that’s why this supercar is lighter than the standard Gallardo. This weight-saving material is used for the inner door panels, the seats, the underbody cover, the exterior mirrors, the rear spoiler and the engine cover. Even if the Gallardo has been in production for four years, its shape still makes people turn their necks and admire this beauty.

Getting inside the car is a little tricky, because of the conventional doors used for this car and you might miss the scissor doors used for the Murcielago. Once you enter the car you might have a change of heart, because, the interior of the 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera is covered in Alcantara suede. The car is equipped with all the features you need including the navigation and climate controls, a CD player, an audio HVAC and a handy dashboard. As optional features the Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera includes a multimedia system equipped with navigation and CD changer, a carbon accessories kit for the interior, a rear video camera designed to help the driver park the car, a fixed rear spoiler and a four-point seatbelt available only for the European models.

In addition to this, the European model’s interior is equipped with special lightweight bucket seats while the USA version has the optional sport seats that are well known as features of the Gallardo. Because of this the USA version weighs with 66 pounds more than the European model.

Thinking of performance, I must say that you can admire the engine of the car through a clear polycarbonate window. The car is equipped with a 5.0 liters V10 engine which produces 523 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque. This amazing power is possible because of the volumetric efficiency, the exhaust back pressures, intake load losses and because of the electronic control. As a result, the 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera goes from zero to 60 mph in only 3.5 seconds and can reach 100 mph in 7.9 seconds while the top speed reachable is of 196 mph. I think that you will be pleased with these figures. I’m sure the Lamborghini Company is, because this 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo can compete with other supercars such as the Corvette Z06, the Porsche 911 Turbo or the newest model of Dodge Viper.

Moreover, you can choose the transmission you want without having to pay extra money. So, the car is available with a six-speed e-gear automated manual transmission or a six-speed manual transmission. The Supperleggera is an impressive car at top speed because of its stiffened suspension and its upgraded power-to-weight ratio. Using the multi-spoke Scorpius alloy wheels draped in Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tires along with ventilated Brembo disc brakes, the car helps the reduced bounce suspension to stop the car. In addition to this, the 2008 Superleggera can be equipped with carbon-ceramic brakes as an optional feature.

The 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera is an amazing supercar that offers high performance, speed and comfort for those who love fast sports car. Even if it’s expensive (the base price is $224,800), this 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo model is worth the money if you think about the incredible adventure you will experience by driving it.
