The new Gallardo has arrived. Featuring an all-new V10 powerplant pushing 552 hp, signature permanent four-wheel drive and an updated E-gear sequential manual transmission featuring 40-percent faster gear changes, this car pushes the Gallardo's performance envelope ever further into the extreme. The Gallardo LP560 also features a 40-pound reduction in weight, a revised suspension setup for improved handling, and aggressive new aerodynamics loosely derived from the ultra-limited, million-euro Reventn. Check out the October 2008 issue of european car for a full review and driving impression.
