Driving Feature: The Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4
- Behind the Scenes
- February 14, 2017
Last month we featured the Ferrari F430 Spider in our blog roll and gave everyone a taste of what it is like to get behind the wheel of “the stallion”. This month we are featuring another exotic sports car in our fleet, the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4. At Scenic Rush, we like to refer to the Lamborghini Gallardo as the “bellicose bull” because of its aggressive styling and impressive performance capabilities. In our experience, we have found that this pearl green exotic sports car is a fan favourite among drivers. Put on your seat belt and prepare to be pinned to the back of your seat as we stick you behind the wheel of the “bellicose bull” in this month’s driving feature.
The Lamborghini Gallardo vehicle specifications
The exterior colour of the Lamborghini Gallardo is referred to as Ithaca Verde, otherwise known as pearl green. This particular colour works well with the Lamborghini’s aesthetic and gives it a distinct look when peeling along the Sea to Sky Highway. The coupe style sports car has a 5.2L V10 engine capable of pumping out 553hp and 398ft-lbs of torque. At a price point of $260,000 CAD (original MSRP), the Gallardo can go from 0-60 miles in 3.7 seconds and tops out at 315km/h.

With its impressive horsepower and torque, it may surprise you to learn that the Lamborghini Gallardo has quite a calm, composed feel to it when driving. This is the result of thoughtful planning and exceptional, Italian craftsmanship. When compared to other Lamborghinis, the Gallardo LP 560-4 is at the top of its class with unprecedented design and reliability. One of the first things drivers will notice with the Gallardo is its boisterous engine. The Gallardo’s engine resembles a thunderous roar with the ability to wake up entire neighborhoods at once with the turn of the key. Once the bull is up and running, drivers will get to experience its incredible power and handling.
Driving the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 along the Sea to Sky Highway
The Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 was not designed for weaving in and out of rush hour traffic in downtown Vancouver. To get the most out of this exotic sports car, it needs to be driven on the highway or race track where it can open up its engine and perform up to its full capabilities. Driving the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 along the Sea to Sky Highway is the ultimate exotic driving experience because it allows the driver to experience the full power and handling of the “bellicose bull”.
