Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4
Lamborghini increased the capacity of the V10 to 5.2-litres for the refreshed Gallardo, a revitalised supercar that now produced 560bhp and featured newly designed suspension kinematics, together with tighter springs and shocks and an additional track rod on the rear axle for better handling.
Headline stats are thus: 0-62mph in 3.7 seconds, 0-124mph in 11.8 seconds and a top speed of 202mph. A Spyder was launched soon after (0-62mph in four, 0-124mph in 13.1).
Lamborghini boss Stephan Winkelmann said at the time of its launch: "It will outclass its predecessor in every aspect." It did.
