Of the 30,000 cars that Lamborghini has produced over the course of its half a century in operation, half of those came between 2004 and 2014 alone. And the model in question, the one that became its most produced and one of its most popular supercars of all time? The Lamborghini Gallardo of course.
Like other Lamborghini supercars, the Gallardo shares its name with a famous breed of fighting bull. Its design, headed by Luc Donckerwolke, took inspiration from their 1995 Calà concept car.
On the engineering front, it comes kitted out with a choice of either a 6 speed manual transmission or a 6 speed electro-hydraulically actuated single clutch automated manual transmission, patented by Lamborghini as an ‘E gear’, which is activated by a series of paddles behind the steering wheel.
Powering on the Gallardo comes its 4.2 litre V10 engine, which, whilst smaller than those found on the likes of an Aventador or Murcielago, still bumps out an impressive 493 bhp, roaring from 0 - 60 mph in 4.1 seconds and 0 - 100 mph in 9.1 seconds, and is capable of top speeds 193 mph.

Booking a Lamborghini Gallardo Driving Experience
We take pleasure in having the most up-to-date availability for all of our experiences, since we keep in contact with suppliers and venues on a regular basis to acquire them, so you may book straight into any upcoming day mentioned on our Events Calendar if you choose.
If you're purchasing an open Lamborghini Gallardo package gift voucher, double-check the validity time, since certain vouchers and special offers may have a shorter or longer validity period, which will be clearly mentioned on the voucher.
If you reserve a Lamborghini Gallardo Experience on a certain day, please keep in mind that you are making a reservation request, and the date and time you choose are still subject to availability. We typically confirm reservations within 48 hours, but it's critical that you wait until you get a final confirmation email before making any arrangements related to your booking request. When you make a booking request, you will get an instant receipt. This is not the confirmation.
Another essential factor to consider when buying Lamborghini Gallardo Experiences is that the driver fulfils all age, weight, height, and driving licence criteria. Each event will have its own set of criteria, so be sure you've gone over all of the essential details.
If an experience is exclusively for younger drivers, we will generally indicate it in the package name, although this is not always the case. If you book a Lamborghini experience and the driver does not fulfil the criteria on the day of the experience, they will most likely not be able to drive and will have to be given a passenger ride instead.
The BBC’s long running motoring show Top Gear were immediate fans of the Lamborghini Gallardo from the off. They not only made it their Dream Car of the Year twice over - first in 2005, then again in 2009 - but they also wrote a special ‘This Is Your Life’ piece for their website to mark the Gallardo’s end of production in 2014.
Did you also know that the London Metropolitan Police have used the Gallardo before? In 2005 and 2006, Lamborghini London supplied them a Gallardo for use in publicity events, fitted out in their standard yellow and blue livery with a small blue lightbar affixed to the top of the roof.
All experiences are subject to availability. The most recent information on dates when an event may be available can be checked by looking at the calendars on the website, or when you have activated and logged in with your voucher. Please note not all spaces are shown online so if you cannot see spaces for your event please call or email for dates. We will do our best to secure your preferred choice of event, venue and date, but to avoid disappointment book as early as possible, especially for peak times such as weekends and the summer months which book up very quickly. Do not purchase an experience for yourself or as a gift that has a choice of venues if you or the person it is for are only able to travel to one of the choices. Once you are booked, you are bound by the terms and conditions of the event host of which a copy can be made available upon request. In most circumstances, a cancellation cannot be made once a date has been booked.
When booking by phone or online you should not make arrangements in connection with an Event until you have received your final booking confirmation stating your date and time (this does not include the automatic purchase email you receive that confirms what you have just ordered). Your final confirmation will usually arrive within 48 hours of making the purchase. For voucher redemption see 'voucher conditions' below. Where specific elements of an Event such as vehicles or equipment are not available due to mechanical breakdown, we reserve the right to make reasonable substitutions on the day. If this is not possible we reserve the right to cancel the experience at short notice.
Voucher holders must make a prior booking and receive confirmation in order that an open voucher can be redeemed. We recommend that when you have chosen your experience you redeem your voucher at least 21 days in advance of taking your selected experience. We do not guarantee availability on all events, even if the date is showing, so if a chosen event is full or you cannot find a suitable date during the validity period of your voucher then the credit can be used towards an alternative event. Do not arrive at a venue expecting to be able to use your voucher without making a prior booking and receiving a booking confirmation. Trackdays.co.uk will not be held liable for any costs incurred in such circumstances.
Unless stated otherwise, vouchers are valid for one person only. Where necessary a top-up payment can be made to increase the value of a voucher to book a higher priced event. Note that during the out of season months the price of experience may change. If the price of the event is lower than the value of the voucher the remaining credit will be held for use until the vouchers expiry date. We recommend booking as early as possible as you must have undertaken your experience before the expiry date printed on the front of your Voucher. All vouchers will be valid for use up to the expiry date displayed, but after this date, vouchers will automatically expire and cannot be reinstated under any circumstances. Trackdays.co.uk staff are not responsible for reminding or informing customers when a voucher is due to expire. A voucher holder may book a date which is outside of the expiration date displayed on the voucher but must extend the expiry of their voucher for an administration fee. This must be processed before the original expiry date. Voucher credit cannot be used for extension fees or to pay for booking protection.
