My good buddy's brother got his Gallardo about a week ago. He was nice enough to let me drive it. Here are some impressions; It is painted in the pearl metallic yellow, a very sharp looking color (would love to see a 360 in it). The hood is at the same angle as the windshield, reminding me of the Countach and all other Lambos in between. It looks nice from most angles, very aggressive. The back end is the only part that I have an issue with.....way too boxy. The interior was done really well. Yellow and black alcantara - very nice indeed. Ergonomically, Lambo has come a long way, thanks to Audi. The center console looks as if it was lifted directly out of an Audi. If I am spending that kind of money, though, I don't want to see any part from another car. The driving position is quite nice for my 6'-2" frame, no problem with head or leg room. The clutch is quite light, very nice to operate. The gated shifter shifts nicely, but not quite as nice as a 360. The brakes are very strong, perhaps the strongest part of the car. The car has a low rumble to it, very different from the high notes that you get from a high-winding 8-cylinder. Although sounding aggressive, it does not produce the same quality of sound that you get with a 360. With 4WD, traction is no issue. I didn't get on it 100% out of respect for the fact that it wasn't my car, but I would imagine that it's hard to get any wheelspin at all. Now the car has 500 hp, but it didn't feel like 500. It felt about the same as a 360 in regards to power, maybe slightly more so. Would I want one over a 360? Probably not. If it were between it and a Stradale - Stradale, hands down. Don't get me wrong, it's a cool car. It gets as many looks as any Ferrari, and is much faster than what most people will ever need. I'd love to own one, just not instead of a Ferrari. Lambo has taken a step forward, but I don't think Ferrari needs to worry, at least not yet. Besides, this may not mean anything to most people, but if a manufacturer has not proven themselves in Formula 1 racing, then they cannot be compared to a manufacturer that has.
