In some ways, you really have to admire the douchebaggery-double-down that this Lamborghini Gallardo owner pulled off. It's not just a jerky parking job across two spots, or parking in a handicapped space —this guy parked in the access aisle between two handicapped spots, making two — possibly four — handicapped spots…
That's all she wrote for the Gallardo. The final note is the special edition Squadra Corse... and it's the perfect sendoff to the longest running bull of them all.
And lived to tell about it. Seriously, after seeing umpteen photos of toasted Italian exotics on Jalopnik there was a small part of my psyche that thought I might have a front row seat to yet another crispified critter from Maranello or Sant'Agata. Well, glad to say it didn't happen and it was an incredible experience.
What do the Gallardo and the manual gearbox have in common? Both are nearing the end of their respective runs at Lamborghini. The Ferrari 360 Modena was the competition when the Gallardo made its debut nine years ago (!) and nowadays, no one buys the old-school gated manual anymore. Sadly, the present and future is…
You know what's entirely overrated? Snowmobiles, that's what. They think they're so freaking great, cutting through snow and ice at high speeds. Supercars can do it just as well, even if the cost of entry is just a tad bit higher.
Name all of the Italian supercars that you can currently buy with a proper manual gearbox. Do it. Now.
Listen: Just because you can do something doesn't mean you should do it.
This is the latest Lambo, and it has a long name: 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo. It's a name that reminds me of Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, but that doesn't, as a matter of fact, have anything at all to do with Mary Poppins.
A Lamborghini is a pretty desirable car, but what if you had to take public transit every day of the week to drive one, and you only got it on the weekends?
The United Arab Emirates is the land of the supercars. They even give them out in malls, as one extraordinarily lucky cab driver found out this week when he won a $ 204,028 (Dh750,000) Gallardo LP550-2 in a local lottery.
If you were around in the 1990s, there is an excellent chance that you remember Chicago Bulls player Dennis Rodman. The flamboyant Rodman was married to Carmen Electra briefly, constantly dyed his hair, and once showed up to practice without shoes.
Putting aside the obvious fire risk that comes along with owning an Italian exotic, as this video illustrates there's another less obvious downside of owning a Lamborghini.
Guy Fieri, the Food Network's raspy-voiced propagator of unhealthy recipes, was the unfortunate victim of grand theft a little over a year ago. His 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo was stolen from a San Francisco car dealership, leaving the bleach/spike haired chef without the car that completes his caricaturish public image.
A Lamborghini Gallardo owner who posts on Luxury4Play had the misfortune this weekend of having his exotic car showered on. Except instead of praise, it was with the urine of a drunk and/or envious passerby.
Yellow isn't a flattering color on the Gallardo. Subsequently, 90% of all Gallardo pictures you see fail to capture their cool, compact vibe. No such problem for Ed Callow, who shot this white Superleggera on the streets of London.
Since posting the photo of Batman getting pulled over in a Lamborghini we've received lots of tips about who this guy is. This recent photo comes from last week at Georgetown University, where we assume 'Lamborghini Batman' was helping sick kids. What a hero.
This is the debut of the Gallardo GT3 rally car, by Lamborghini racecar builder Reiter Engineering. The video itself comes from 2008, and it's hard to think of a cooler rally-prepped car that's debuted since then.
Welcome to the world of RC drifting. The cars are small, but the slip angles are immense. While you can't keep an RC car in a straight line, this Gallardo can slide with millimeter precision.
