High WOW factor by Trackless in Honolulu on 12/10/2006. Trim: 2005 Lamborghini Gallardo Coupe, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Hot rod at heart. Lacks the sophistication of the F430 but beats it in styling.
Cons: Notchy shifter (manual)
Overall review: Porsche driver jaws drop and stare as you drive by. The car appears to be confining from the outside but once in driving it's not as bad as expected especially out the back.

The Ultimate Head-Turning Exotic! by A Bachelor in NorCal on 01/06/2006. Trim: 2005 Lamborghini Gallardo Coupe, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Very fast, very agile, very much a head-turner. There is nothing else like it. I've owned BMW's, several Mercedes and several Porsche's (including a 996 Turbo), but nothing compares to this. The sound of the engine/exhaust is so sweet I rarely turn on the stereo!
Cons: Quality has been less than what I would prefer for a car costing this much. The warranty is not robust and this is a vehicle that needs a warranty.
Overall review: If you like to be seen, there is nothing else that will compare! Once while parked for lunch a newer Ferrari 360 Modena parked next to the Gallardo - he and his date got out and took pictures next to the parked Gallardo!! It was some sight! Yet it happens often with other lookers who are very curious as to what the car is. As for performance, there are not many cars which can take it on and prevail; if you know how to drive this car will keep you in the lead or right along side. It's an experience everyone should have at least once in their life! Hey, the cost is abusive, the gas mileage is obscene, the storage space in a BMW's glovebox is larger than the trunk in this car - but it is every bit an exotic, a Lamborghini that will not dissapoint you if you desire a true exotic....

The Slow Ugly Lambo by An MSN Autos Consumer on 12/30/2005. Trim: 2005 Lamborghini Gallardo Coupe, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The engine. The maker. That's it. I rated performance 5/10 because this car will get SMOKED by a Ford GT or C6 Z06 (which cost less and actually look good).
Cons: An ugly imitation of the Murcielago. This is not the poor man's Lambo this is the LOSER'S Lambo. If you own this car people are shaking their heads and laughing at you (including me and others I know) and deservedly so. (In fact we saw one driving around and that is exactly what we did!) This car tarnishes the Lamborghini name and it's sad that Lamborghini seemingly made it for profit only.
Overall review: The first and only ugly Lambo ever made. So sad. Get the Murcielago which is a beautiful supercar. Do not EVER buy this car. If you cannot afford the Murcielago get a previous model Lambo or a Fort GT or a C6 Corvette Z06.

Listen to me by An MSN Autos Consumer on 02/16/2006. Trim: 2005 Lamborghini Gallardo Coupe, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: I LOVE THIS CAR!!!
Cons: Just a little small on the inside
Overall review: I'm not going to lie, i dont own this car but i just want to say that to whoever said that this car will get smoked by a Z06 obvisoly doesnt know anything. Sure it might get beat in a straight line but as soon as it hits a turn the Gallardo will blow away the Z06. For heavens sake the car has leaf springs!!!!

An amusement park at your fingertips with Hollywood looks by Lion from Lancaster on 01/28/2006. Trim: 2005 Lamborghini Gallardo Coupe, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Real head turner. Awesome balance. Audi hvac and stereo from A8 are great. Fit and Finish are excellent compared to previous Lambos.Have had Porsche turbos, Ferarri 355, 550 and 360. Nothing makes the public soil their shorts like a Lambo.
Cons: Reverse can bog down and stall. 2 hours to dealership. Due to being such a high profile vehicle hard to park it just anywhere, as you would expect it draws a crowd even in Black.
Overall review: Everything an exotic car should be. Not too finicky though. Only 850mi on it in 8 months. Added a tubi exhaust for the added HP and a growling exhaust. Factory exhaust note is quite muted.
