2004 Lamborghini Gallardo
Lamborghini Gallardo is an amazing sports car manufactured by Lamborghini. The name of the car comes from the well known Spanish “fighting bull”, the meaning of “gallardo” in Spanish being gallant.
For all sports cars this Lamborghini is the ultimate “Spanish bull”. Even the Ferrari’s Prancing Horse is shaking in front of this impressive sports car, because we’re talking about a supercar that all car admirers have dreamt about for years.
The 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo has an aluminum V-10 engine that is able to reach a top speed of 150 mph like its predecessor the V-12. After 15 years since Lamborghini had the gut to confront and to threat the Ferrari’s rules by manufacturing the Jalpa, this company did it again with a little help from Audi.
In a face to face fight between Lamborghini Gallardo and Ferrari, the Lamborghini rule. If you look at the numbers you can see that the 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo has 25% more horsepower than the 360 Modena and in addition to this, at 376 pound-feet, this car develops 101 poud-feet of torque. Moreover, this supercar reaches a top speed of 209 mph with 17 mph more than the 360 Morena and only 3.9 seconds are enough for the Lamborghini to reach 60 mph.
What about the style? You know is the same impressive pure Lamborghini style, but more classic and bombastic. His low-slung profile has a single smashing curve from the front to rear. This car is equipped with a small spoiler that rises out of the tail and improves its stability while reducing the lift when the car slides with high speed on the road.
The aerodynamic turned out to be great after the Gallardo spent hours in the wind tunnel of the Audi and designers really tried everything to make this baby fly on the road. The first sketches were made by Fabrizio Giugiaro, but the final touches are the work of Luc Donckerwolke. Here’s a man we should thank!
The manufacturer said that this 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo is a daily supercar as the 360 Modena or the Porsche 911 Turbo and it isn’t a toy. This is the reason why Gallardo has a plan to offer optional 19 inch winter tires. The car has some surface touches from Audi, such as the aluminum space frame borrowed from the new A8 and the aluminum panels welded and riveted on top to give a shape to the car’s body. Comparatively to the Ferrari, Gallardo is a little smaller, but still spacious enough.
This car respects the Italian tradition of unequal-length control arms and has the V-10 longitudinally gearbox placed behind. Even more it has coil springs front and rear and a four wheel drive chassis special made to turn “gently” on entry to a corner. All these design elements help you control all the 493 horsepower that are under the hood.
The engine is equipped with two extra cylinders each with two exhaust valves. The standard high-technology is at home in each 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo: fly by wire throttle, variable intake, dry-sump lubrication to lower the engine and offer a good gravity center and many other modern features. With 493 horsepower at 7800 rpm and 376 pound-feet of torque, this car is incredible and a supercar in spirit. Moreover, you get to choose between an automatic shift option and a conventional pedal shift.
I am speechless. The 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo has everything working for it: high-speed, a gorgeous look and an impressive performance. All these make this car a fierce competitor on the sports car market.
