There’s no denying it, the Lamborghini has the wow factor. It has movie-star looks, is ridiculously fast and has a £196k price tag. People just can’t help but stare at it. So to drive one of these cars is something very special and will make your child the envy of their dad, their uncle, their friends and probably their teachers too.
The Lamborghini Gallardo is powered by a mid mounted 5 litre V10 engine that transfers its power to the tarmac via an E Gear gearbox and boy has it got some power, 500 brake horsepower to be precise. All that power converts into a nought to sixty time of of 4.2 seconds and if you think you can tame this raging bull then you will need to take it all the way up to 196 mph. The Gallardo provides the perfect soundtrack for a truly memorable junior drive.
