2013 Lamborghini Gallardo Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview

The high-performance Lamborghini Gallardo represents the essence of exotic ultra-luxury sports cars. The Gallardo is intended to perform well as an everyday driver and as a track-day machine. It's available as a coupe or Spyder convertible, and competitors include the Ferrari 458 Italia and Audi R8.

Unlike the Lamborghini Aventador's scissors-style doors, the Gallardo has conventional front-hinged doors. The body sits low to the ground and has big side scoops and sharp edges.

For 2013, the Gallardo LP 560-4 gets updated front and rear styling along with new unique 19-inch wheels. A new, lightweight LP 570-4 Edizione Tecnica joins the lineup for 2013, too. It has a 562-hp V-10, all-wheel drive, a fixed wing and carbon-ceramic brakes.

The cab-forward cockpit is integrated into the body, giving it a wedge-shaped profile. A rear spoiler automatically deploys at high speeds. The convertible's power soft-top operates in about 20 seconds.

Though the Gallardo is a performance-oriented car, it isn't without its luxuries. The cabin seats two, and an Ad Personam program allows customers to choose any interior color and trim combination.

Built with an aluminum body and space frame, all Gallardos but the rear-wheel-drive LP 550-2 have all-wheel drive. The all-wheel-drive system distributes 30 percent of available power to the front wheels, but the system can be adjusted as needed.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
