The Gallardo Spyder’s exotic Italian styling is married to reliable German engineering – the perfect recipe for a modern supercar! We decided traditional Giallo Pearl was the best colour, for the flamboyant styling to be enjoyed at it’s best.
Lamborghini’s have always been designed with the aim of out-performing their Ferrari competitors, it’s up to you to decide if this second evolution of the Gallardo succeeded.
The good visibility, controls and steering are quite easy to get used to, so after an hour’s driving you’ll have settled in and be feeling quite at home. Which is just as well when you might have an audience! The interior is luxuriously trimmed throughout in black leather with yellow piping, the seats are comfortable but also supportive, with dual-zone air conditioning, good sound system and everything else you would expect.
The steering was a revelation for 4wd cars when it was launched, providing the good feel and feedback normally only found in rear wheel drive cars with no driveshafts to the front wheels.
The ride is quite firm for good control, but the reactive Koni damper system ensures it’s not harsh over ridges and bumps. The whole effect while driving is solid but supple, with a feel of what’s happening at the road surface. But mostly you’ll be enjoying the symphony from the V10 engine, which is more audible than in the coupe, from the moment the very high-speed starter whirrs, through low-rev rumbles and mid-range growls, to the glorious trademark Lamborghini howl at full throttle!
There is a full complement of modern traction and safety systems to help you stay in full control, which are subtle enough to be simply there in the background to help but not interfere with your enjoyment. The four-wheel drive gives excellent forward traction in slippery conditions for a supercar, and the huge brakes provide reliable braking from high speeds backed by ABS.
The Spyder brings an extra level of enjoyment with the electric roof down, which is a theatrical event in itself with the whole back bootlid lifting, and rising several feet skywards while the roof folds smoothly beneath, which then shows off the swooping sharply styled bodywork to best effect.
Delivery isn’t provided, we focus on keeping our services and mileage affordable for you to collect the car and enjoy driving it home, or explore the great driving roads nearby in North Wales visiting tourist attractions and taking advantage of our package deals at Spa Hotels.
Video review of a Gallardo Coupe by an enthusiastic owner ;
Hire rate includes 100 miles per day, and extra miles are available at £3.50 per mile. Minimum age 30. Comprehensive insurance and VAT is included. Weekend rate includes 2 days' mileage, collection from 2.00pm Friday return Monday 9.00am onwards, Sunday return is available for an extra £25. Your own bank holds a pre-authorised deposit of £4,000 before hire set by the insurers due to the value of this vehicle, which will be released straight away from Sportscarhire when you return. Minor damage to the car would be charged only as necessary to cover the independent trade cost of repair, a copy receipt for the repair would be provided to you, and the balance promptly refunded. If the car has significant damage resulting in a full insurance claim we would retain your deposit to cover our insurance excess charge. The deposit can be reduced to £2,500 by payment of a £200 collision damage waiver fee. Please have fun, but drive with care for other road users and for your car. A top-level tracking and data-logging system is hard-wired into each car. We do encourage customers to fully enjoy the cars, but not to abuse them.
