R8 v Lamborghini Gallardo

If you had the dosh and the ego desire wouldn't you go for the Lamborghini Gallardo?

No contest if I was young and single IMHO.

R8 for me
bigben143

rs6 for me but if i had to pick 1 of above would be r8

R8, beautiful shape.

Gallardo for me, even if old and married.

















BUT, nothing can beat the driving pleasure of a B5 RS4.......

Look into build quality/servicing & Parts/GBox/insurance/reliability and perception in the local pub car park.

Easy... R8 for me!

Neither! I'd rather have a Porsche GT3 or similar

Gallardo. The only car that I've ever thought "I really really need one of those!" I see them regularly on test drive on the estate near my work and off up the A38 and they look so good on the move!!

Heart - Gallardo
Head - R8
s4forjim

ford GT for me.    

love the shape to death.


or possibly a classic ac cobra

VS.




Guess it comes down to how far to the floor you want the average passer-by's gaw to drop. Labmo is just way OTT, but I would. But would also give my right one for an R8 too...
Mark

Might sound strange but I don't like the door handles on either.

The R8 feels heavier to drive, also a lot softer on the gearchange (e-gear vs r-tronic)

Lambo noise better also.

I imagine a map and exhaust on the R8 will get you to the same as Gallardo but the Lambo will always turn heads more. Mostly in a bad way, R8 gets nicer on looker responses IMO
xyber

The way I look at it, if I had an R8, I'd still want a Gallardo, but if I had a Gallardo, I wouldn't be bothered about the R8.

I've always loved Lambo's though since I was a kid.
Nudenut

Drove both before buying mine, big Lambo fan (Dad had a Countach Anniversary addition) but I hated the Gallardo.

I'm 110% sure I made the right decision on EVERY level.

The LP560-4 SL is VERY raw.

And any comparissons here should really be made against the R8 GT TBH.

I'd even say the 'normal' Gallardo (spyder) compared to R8 V10 (spyder again) is very raw. I hated driving the Gallardo with the roof up, had to be down to enjoy the car. By comparison I preferred the R8 with the roof up, wasn't keen with roof down.

So to add to what I said earlier, if money no object and just a toy, go with heart and get a Gallardo. Needing to use the car for more than just fun the R8 is ace. Make sense to buy an R8 hardtop over the spyder as much more legroom which I really could have done with. Just a shame the Spyder looks better IMO

Tough choice really love the Audi RS R's etc never drove a R8 but have drove the lambo on a track day. Was only the 500 BHP model so slightly less then my RS but loved every minute of it. Lambo is my dream car so would have to be money no object.

Failing that would spend cash on my RS4 700+bhp would be nice

R8 for me  if its the GT, if not the Lambo.
cos

Well ... gallardo ugr 1500+whp and keep it for ever...!
Matt_D

Lambo for me
F12KYB

Gallardo its gotta be driven both of them and fell in love with the bull !
mckay9

Just had a look around an RS3 very very nice !
mattyc

The R8 is a much better car.

Lambo is "Hay Look @ ME"

R8 GT is fantastic....

That's surprising, I loved the Gallardo in pretty much every way in terms of an impractical sports car.

I've never owned an R8 but loved the few drives I have had.

I am a Ferrari fan at heart and enjoy having the that metal gaiter and the associated noise of changing gear (every time - it never wears thin on me!), but both of these cars I enjoyed driving immensely, apart from the flappy paddle gear boxes.
Marc R

The Gallardo for me please...it's my dream car so to speak..

If all goes well i'll have one in my driveway within 5 years.
cos

I haven't driven an R8 yet... but I've driven the lp570 and the 430 scuderia at the same day... my verdict was "I fell in love with the Gallardo'' raw acceleration in every gear , sound, TRACTION, and classy interior, Ferrari's interior was like a fiat punto gt... same switches...Lambo for me until I drive a v10 R8, or a supercharged one
mattyc

Love he posts, we are all so different, but have one thing in common.

To be fair, both are great cars.

Well its a bonus... Besides if interior doesn't count at all , then ... what about the new aventador, or the koenigsegg etc...
The Chippy

If the interior is your thing try the Pagani Huayra
cos

Yeah great dream car mate also it is said that it is  very difficult to drive
monkeyrs6

Very much depends on who,s footing the bill, Lamb is a very expensive mistress, Porsche turbo S beats them both on performance and a lot easier on the pocket. Tim
cos

Yes, but always Lambo, Ferraris, koenigsegg, Bugatti etc would be exotic-dream cars and on the other hand 911 turbo,gt2,gt3 etc would be just a supercar for daily drive  
monkeyrs6

The turbo s and gt2 are in the same league as Ferrari and r8 but can be driven as a daily..Lambo is more of a dream car i would agree..
