AT HIGH REVS, THE ENGINE TRULY RIPS, CRANKING OUT THE CONVINCING PART OF ITS 492 HORSEPOWER AT THE OUTER EDGE OF THE SPIN CYCLE. IT’S A COLOSSAL SURGE, AN INEVITABLE BLOSSOMING OF POWER AND G’S AIDED BY THE RAM EFFECT OF THE AIR SWIRLING IN THE INTAKE MANIFOLD.
The first generation Gallardo came with a 5 liter 90 degree V10 (4961cc), based on Audi’s 4.2 Liter V8 developed by Cosworth.The Gallardo offers two choices of transmissions, a conventional (H-Box) six-speed manual transmission, and an advanced six-speed electro-hydraulically controlled semi-automatic robotized manual, which Lamborghini abbreviates to “E-gear”. The “E-gear” allows the driver to make shifts much faster than they could with a manual transmission. The driver shifts up and down via paddles behind the steering wheel, but can also change to an automatic mode. The vehicle was designed by Italdesign Giugiaro, which was based on the 1995 Calà prototype
