2009 model year changes

Lamborghini's popular Gallardo hits the ground running in 2009. Gone is the Superleggera, as well as last year's base model, and in their place is the Gallardo LP560-4 in both coupe and Spyder form. Their 5.2L, 553-horsepower V10 replaces the outgoing 5.0L unit and its 520 horses. Suspension has been revised for an even sportier feel, and subtle styling treatment to the front and rear update the supercar's angular looks. The Lambo's slick semi-automatic transmission known as "e.gear" has been revised to deliver gear changes up to 40% faster, according to the manufacturer. The system now also incorporates a launch control called "Thrust Mode." Overall, the 2009 Gallardo weighs about 45 pounds less than its predecessor, and Lamborghini calls it good to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds, with a top speed of 202 mph.

Special features for 2009

The 2009 Lamborghini Gallardo's sexy shape is reason enough for most prospective supercar buyers, along with performance that ranks among the best of any street-legal production vehicle. It's become one of the most popular supercars of this decade, with a shape that really does look like it's moving fast even when it's standing still. The addition of extra ponies while also reducing weight in 2009 makes the Gallardo even more attractive to those with a need for speed.
