Trust Me, The 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Is Better In Person

The Lamborghini Gallardo has now been soldiering on in various forms for nearly 10 years. The looks have changed a little and the engines have been upgraded, but it is still the same basic car.

In Paris, Lambo revealed yet another update to the exterior of the car, and opinions have been divided.


On Wednesday, before seeing it in the flesh, we declared the 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo LP-560-4... we weren't fans... to put it diplomatically. But after seeing it on the show floor, the newest Gallardo actually looks pretty decent.


For the first time, the four-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive cars will look different. The rear-wheel drive ones will maintain the current design, while the LP560-4s will get the new fascia.

Now, I'm a Lamborghini fan, and especially a fan of the current design. But that said, I think the new design has its benefits. It makes the front look wider and lower, which in turn makes it more menacing. Isn't that what a supercar is all about?

But get a little closer, and you'll see a lot of finicky detailing that seems more cluttered than purposeful. Given a choice, I still prefer the old design. Good thing the LP550-2 will not be getting this new front end.

Would that stop me from buying one? No. Not having enough money will.
