The Lamborghini Gallardo sits under the Murcielago in the companys model line-up, and it was designed to compete with the likes of the Porsche 911 Turbo and the Ferrari 360 Modena.

Named after a famous breed of fighting bull, Gallardo is also Spanish for 'gallant'.

A much more practical supercar than the Murcielago, the Gallardo does without the trademark scissor doors of most Lamborghini products, and rearward visibility is far better than previous models.

Powered by a 4.2 litre V10 derived from a straight 5 cylinder from parent company Audi, the Gallardo produces around 500 horsepower. The higher spec Gallardo SE makes 520 hp.

Power is sent to all four wheels is via either a traditional gated 6 speed transmission, or a 6 speed electro-hydraulically controlled auto-clutch manual "E-gear". This advanced system uses two paddles behind the steering wheel to move up and down the gearbox, performing shifts far quicker than a conventionl automatic transmission.
