Hi guys had my Gallardo serviced this week and test drove a Huracan 2015 whilst there which I enjoyed!

Obviously the time of year isn’t ideal for change so potentially might get a better deal than usual.

My question is

I know no one can predict the future but what’s your feelings in regards to gallardo prices? Going to free fall or hold/appreciate soon?

Same question for a Huracan now the evo is about.

I was all set to keep my gallardo and store it for winter but this has thrown a bit of a spanner in the works if I’m honest!

I love the Gallardo and think they have bottomed. The rest have a lot to fall imo

With that in mind if you were tempted to change, baring in mind either motor would be stored til March would you keep the gallardo hoping to attract similar value and shave another 10/15k off a similar Huracan?

I've never warmed to the standard Huracan (I hate the back of it). I was intending to replace my LP-560 Spyder with the equivalent Huracan Spyder but I couldn't bring myself to do it. So I kept the LP-560 and bought an Aventador as well.

(However, the Performante Spyder is a different proposition all together and I will be getting one of them at some point in all likelihood).

Exterior wise I prefer my lp560 and was tempted to pay 3k to upgrade the in car entertainment which they offered however when I drove the Huracan I just loved it.

I don’t bloody know. Cars hey. Not even sure there’s a deal to be done yet!

To buy a similar Huracan to the one I bought earlier this year I’d get it for about £10k less now so they are still dropping. However, they are going to be supported by Gallardo prices at some point soon which most people seem to believe have stabilised.

I test drove a Gallardo before the Huracan and the Huracan is a far better car, as it would be being a more modern car. To be honest, for the money, I can’t think of anything else better. I tried the 458 too and preferred the H. In short I’d get one, absolutely love mine.

I had my SL570-4 serviced too quite recently. I took it to the Dealer and saw all the shiny newer Huracans etc. All very nice indeed. However, with my car parked our front in the sunshine with lots of other newer cars around it, I found myself thinking that all I wanted to do was keep mine.

When I came to collect it after the service was complete, there my car was parked out front surrounded by Huracan, Aventadors and so on. If you asked me what I wanted to drive home, out of anything there at the time....I would pick my car without hesitation. Not because it is better, of course it is not “technically” better, but because it has a place in my heart. It is part of my soul and I love everything about it. For me changing it would be doing so for the sake of it. I am afraid that doesn’t work for me.

We all have different motivations, so go with your heart. These cars are never about head decisions, at the end of the day.

You can get into a H now for circa 120k and a decent spec/mileage one for 130k. Realistically how much further can they drop in the next 6-8 months if the LP560 is hovering at 100k?

You can get into a 488 now with half it’s 7 year service pack for 160k - the servicing alone is worth over 5k.

Interesting few months ahead. I’m swaying to the H but in spring when my G comes back out of storage. I can see even better value coming over winter.

Hovering at £100k? I think you are a bit optimistic around the value of your own car.........lots of LP cars retailing for £85-£90k......so trading at least £10k-£15k less than that.........the slowdown is affecting all cars.......

Every LP on autotrader with under 20k mileage is 95k+ apart from one white (who wants white?) spyder at GVE for 90k. Hardly optimistic if you have a good example.

What would you hazard a guess for a pre lp 2007 Gallardo with manual box and ceramics in black

There’s 2 on autotrader atm one at vvs and a private sale! Ones at 15k miles the other at 30k plus

They’ve been for sale a while

Interesting to see how this goes. I fancy a Huracan but feel they’re overvalued at £130k for an early version. Imagine a reasonable spec was £200k new, so retaining 65% value after 5yrs. Feels like there is a way to go, potentially in short order as the market continues to normalise.

100% agree! Also no one talks about how great the single clutch is on the G or the Aventador. The dual clutch is boring. Those that want a true manual car feel need single clutch. It will crack your skull! There is a reason the aventador is still a SINGLE clutch (gallardo pre lp and LP are both single) lamborghini wants their customer in their top of the line model car to still get that raw feeling as long as they can offer it, but eventually will have to change it to get faster speeds, but there is a reason that $400,000 car has a single clutch.

Even Lexus had the choice to make the LFA (regarded as one of the best sounding cars ever) a dual clutch, but lexus kept the car a single clutch to give the driver and more connected feeling. FACT.

A load of rubbish you just spouted there. The one and only reason it doesn’t have a dual clutch is because there wasn’t one that could take stress when they designed the Aventador and now they can’t fit one in without redesigning the tub. Hence why the replacement will have one for sure. Lamborghini themselves told me this when I asked them.

Nobody talks about how great the single clutch (E-gear) is, because its utter ste!

I also have a gallardo gen 1 manual, being oniy just over 500 manuals out of over 14,000 made worldwide can't help feeling the gallardo's should hold well, rawer and more focused than a standard huracan apart from the performante that is, but when the early huracan's drop to £100k or less maybe not quite yet but they will eventually i can see it will effect the prices on the gallardo just like the the pricing on the 458 will effect the f430 ,some of us like old school and others like modern technology and if the prices get to close i think that technology will win as the driver's are a younger generation now not a old codger like me, ps any one know how many r.h.d manual gallardo's were made ? ,lamborghini don't seem to know the answer to the question ,any anoraks out there !!

Lamborghini do know, they just won’t tell you.
