Lamborghini Gallardo | Cars
Lamborghini. That's a name that should send shivers down your spine....in a good way!
For me, I have always thought of Lamborghini as the craziest supercars on the plant, built in a shed by a crazy Italian. Ferruccio Lamborghini was that man and the first of the crazy cars was the unforgettable Miura with it's fantastic looks and it's insanely sounding V12 engine. The world of bullfighting is a key part of Lamborghini's identity, as it was Ferruccio's interest that would give you the iconic emblem for this historic company. A Lamborghini has at some point been the pin up on everyone’s wall and thanks to the design tastes of Marcello Gandini of Bertone who gave us not only the Miura, but the Countach and Diablo to name a few!
Gallardo, a famous breed of fighting bull and Lamborghini's bestselling car to date. Lamborghini's are designed mainly to make a lot of noise and cause excitement. So, while the Ferrari howls and a McLaren hums, the Lambo bellows. And while the racers were styled by aerodynamicists, the Lambo was designed to make people say “wow”. Which it does. In a Ferrari or a McLaren, you concentrate when you are driving quickly. In the Gallardo, you can’t. You’re too busy laughing.
Who the hell gets to drive one of these pure Italian (half a breath) super cars? Just like the car from Mission Impossible 3, It is bright, and it stands out! This is defiantly a once in a life time opportunity to go wild and feel young again!

What an experience. I drove 3 supercars at Castle Combe for 2-2 laps. This Lamborghini was my last car, so I roughy knew the circuit. This car was fantastic to drive. The sound of the engine was very good. After my first lap, I reached very high speed at the straight finish line. After the esses, I was told to accelerate. I put my foot to the gas pedal, not too hard, as the track was wet, but at a slight left bend, the car started to skid on a bit of a water, but I could hold the car on track. My instructor, who was very good, told me I nicely held the car on the track at that speed. Thank you again for this wonderful experience.Laszlo
