Since its release five months back, the Lamborghini Gallardo has outsold its big brother Murciélago three to one. The reason: the Gallardo offers similar performance and cachet for half the price, stickering at $165,900. The 5.0 liter V10 makes 492-hp and like the Murci, it makes use of both front and rear wheels to hurtle the angular exoskeleton to 60 mph in about 4.2 seconds. The only caveat in attaining these speeds is the E-gear paddle-shift transmission, which is awkward to use in regular street situations and makes the car difficult to launch properly. A traditional six-speed will arrive later this year. Besides the E-gear, the Autoweek review highly praises the car's stability, cornering prowess, and fanatstic brakes. The review even includes the perspectives of a few owners, who, while they may have a few quibbles, are generally quite happy to be driving Lamborghinis.
