Top Gear drives the Lambo Gallardo STS
Flat out across Italy in the extreme new Super Trofeo Stradale. The perfect day?

Like a failing relationship, it's hard to trust after that initial bad experience, and mid-engined supercars are usually as forgiving as tax inspectors or traffic wardens. But keep practising, and the Gallardo reminds you why this is one of the easiest exotics to drive fast in uncertain conditions. Small, friendly, quick. So the vision isn't brilliant and the rear can get a bit squirmy when the 4x4 system is under pressure, but every time you stand on the brakes or accelerate hard - even when one half of the car is actually sitting on slickness - you get what you expect. Which builds confidence.
