Lamborghini is a top-end high-performance sports car brand whose close competitors include Porsche, Ferrari, and Bugatti. The Lamborghini Gallardo with a VW engine is one among the 2003 production cars from the auto maker. The car features a V10 engine from Audi.
The Volkswagen Factor
Automakers, just like any other businesses, sometimes merge or get acquired. It so happened that the Volkswagen Group acquired Automobili Lamborghini SPA. The VW group includes among others AUDI- AG. AUDI made the Lamborghini Gallardo’s V10, and that’s how the car ended up with a VW engine.
The question on everyone’s minds is, “Which is the world’s fastest car?”
The Lamborghini Gallardo with a VW engine might just be it. The car is rated highly by motor critics for its looks and dynamics. The car looks like a supercar and drives like one. The V10 can push the car to 60mph in just 3.7 seconds. The car’s top speed is a blistering 201 mph.
Lamborghini made this Gallardo with the option of a semi-automatic shifted gear or a fully manual for the devout petrol heads. The semi-automatic is pricier than the manual. The only weakness associated with this Gallardo car is its high CO2 emissions as well as the high running costs.
