How good is a Supercharged Lamborghini Gallardo?

The Smoking Tire finds the best driving road in California and the best car we've ever driven to tackle it: VF Engineering's all new Supercharged Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4. With 760HP and 600 lb/ft of torque going through all 4 wheels, this car redefines fast.

Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder--Video Test Drive with Chris Moran from Chicago Motor Cars
http://www.SupercarNetwork.com A thorough and detailed test drive and walk around of a 2010 Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder. Presented by Lamborghini Chicago with Chris Moran from Chicago Motor Cars Maybe it was the perfect place for a Lamborghini Gallardo—about 5000 feet above Tenerife Island in the Canary Islands off Morocco, where the winding climb finally levels off onto an utterly empty, treeless moonscape of volcanic desolation. Welcome to God's frying pan, this one with a two-lane blacktop running across its center. In the '60s, Raquel Welch made One Million Years B.C. one island over, because that's what the place looks like. Towering into view up ahead on this plateau is the cone-perfect peak of the El Tiede volcano, 12,000 feet from the Atlantic waters below. It looks like a Salvador Dalí playground without the melting clocks, and we expected at any moment some prehistoric killing bird to come screeching and flapping out of the sky, snapping and biting and hissing, providing a real moment for that busload of tourists that pulled off the road behind us, all of them now padding around in their Nikes on the crunchy volcanic ash. About a half-mile up the road, a brand-new, chalk-white Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder makes a U-turn. Its driver can see there is no place for cops to hide in this sorrowful emptiness. In a moment we hear the first explosive sounds of the guy laying into it. Suddenly, the car's howl seems to split the sky open. The tourists turn fearfully and begin to move to the road's edge. The paddle shifts come one-two-three , and there's that piercing cry of an F1 car that a moment later turns into an eye-bulging Pavarotti high note—and yes, it does look like some killer pterodactyl coming at you, hugging the ground, hawk-eyed, closing quickly, wailing. And when it blows by flat out, it whips a whoosh of wind across the faces of a busload of open-mouthed but definitely thrilled Spanish tourists. That would sell about anybody, this mid-mounted, 5.2-liter V-10 engine in full song. All 552 hp flung out of the box, it honks to 60 mph in about 3.5 seconds and to 100 mph in just over seven. Given enough room, it will go a claimed 201 mph. The Delectable Result of an Italo-German Marriage This is what you hope will happen when you mix flamboyant Italian looks with hard-nosed German engineering. The convertible top is two layers of primo black nylon that take 20 seconds to lower (or raise) via two switches. The top folds in a way that turns the rear window into a wind deflector, and there are two spring-loaded bars behind the seats that jump up at anything portending of a rollover. In this era of metal folding convertible tops that preserve a coupe's slick rooflines, however, this softie has all the allure of a bald spot. The all-wheel-drive Gallardo Spyder is much smaller than the bully-boy Murciélago LP650-4. Interior space for two is excellent port and starboard although less so fore-and-aft—the price paid for this car's wickedly plunging wedge shape and the big engine at your back. Passengers under six feet are likely not penalized. The seats are handsome and quite comfortable, even though they verge on being bench-hard. The sensible interior has an Audi knob here and an MMI screen there that serve as reminders of who runs the fabled shop in Sant'Agata Bolognese these days. Pretty Boys Can't Clutch, Apparently Oddly, of two dozen LP560-4 Spyders shipped over for the press launch, none had a manual shifter. It remains hard to think of a Lamborghini without one, like Sophia Loren without lipstick. How many would be sold with manuals, a company man was asked?
