Towards the end of 1998 the final run of the Lamborghini Jalpa finished production and we had to wait a further five years when Lamborghini, now owned by Audi offered the world the all new and highly radical introduction of the Lamborghini Gallardo V10. Like the glorious Lamborghini models of the past, the Gallardo was to follow the same suit with the name to come from a world famous bull breed in Italy, with the company motif being the creation of Ferruccio Lamborghini after he visited the Seville ranch of Don Eduardo Miura in the mid-sixties, he had a fascination with the strength and power from the Spanish fighting bulls. The Gallardo was impressive, with sleek lines, aggressive curves and a stunning sound track that would resonate from the all new V10 engine, all of which placed this model as one of the most successful cars to be produced from the Sant`agata Bolognese Factory in Italy, instantly giving its main competitors from Porsche & Ferrari, some real problems. This was to be the ultimate affordable super car, with monstrous performance figures, a staggeringly beautiful design, an all-new-found reliability from its owners Audi and finally because it was purely a Lamborghini, the cars of dreams and aspirations of so many people across the world. The first-generation Gallardo came with a mighty five litre V10 that produced a more than healthy 494 brake horse power, which would easily accelerate from 0-62 mph in just 4.2 seconds, would further thunder to a limited top speed of 192 mph, with all this power fully controlled and tamed with the introduction of a four wheel drive system found in many of Audi products. The car was to be a huge successful chapter for this Italian manufacturer, steering new and old clients away from other great German and Italian brands, with the worlds motoring press instantly falling in love with this all new raging bull. The Gallardo was offered with both a 6-speed manual and the e-gear automated transmission, whilst the E-Gear system was stated to offer a faster change. However the manual is the must have to get the best driving experience with a real level of involvement that cannot be found in many other cars with the open-gated gear selector. Since the production ended in 2013, a new breed of global collectors considers the Lamborghini Gallardo as an instant cult classic and if we fast forward to 2018 many perfect examples, with exceptional low mileages being snapped up by people across the world, with many people believing that future values are definitely on the climb.
