About the Car
The Lamborghini Gallardo is a sports car built by Lamborghini, their most-produced model to date with over 10,000 built in its first seven years of production. Named after a famous breed of fighting bull, the V-10 Gallardo has been Lamborghini's sales leader and stable-mate to a succession of V-12 flagship models—first to the Lamborghini Murciélago (4,099 built between 2001 and 2011), then to the current flagship Lamborghini Aventador.
The first generation Gallardo came with a 5 liter 90 degree V10 (4961cc), based on Audi's 4.2 Liter V8 developed by Cosworth. The Gallardo offers two choices of transmissions, a conventional (H-Box) six-speed manual transmission, and an advanced six-speed electro-hydraulically controlled semi-automatic robotized manual, which Lamborghini abbreviates to "E-gear". The "E-gear" allows the driver to make shifts much faster than they could with a manual transmission. The driver shifts up and down via paddles behind the steering wheel, but can also change to an automatic mode.
For the MY2006 (launched in late 2005) Lamborghini introduced many changes to the car to counter some criticisms garnered from the press and owners. These were based on the limited edition Gallardo SE. The exhaust system was changed to a more sporty one (including a flap to make it quieter around town), the suspension was revised, a new steering rack was fitted, the engine power was increased by 20 bhp to a maximum of 520 metric horsepower (382 kW; 513 hp), and the biggest change was an overall lowering of the gearing, especially in 1st to 5th. The result was a much improved car; it handled and turned better, sounded better under full throttle and the extra power and lower gearing made an already fast car into a much faster one.

About Ted 7
I'm a professional photographer who has a passion for cars and photography. It started off as a hobby, but rapidly developed into an obsession! I specialize in automotive and real estate as well as culinary and event/party photography. I mostly shoot under natural light and photo shootings rarely take over an hour, but it all depends on what type of photography you want (night shooting, rolling shots, light painting, etc.)
