The V10 is an unusual configuration that’s not inherently balanced, so most automakers vote to skip it and either go with a larger V8 or a V12. Lamborghini has never been a company to back away from a challenge, and when the “baby” Lamborghini Gallardo was introduced to provide a less-expensive stablemate to the Murciélago, a plain-jane V8 wasn’t going to cut it. The result is a 5-liter V10 with a special crankshaft design that provides smooth-running, and more importantly for any proper Lamborghini, gobs of power. Since the Volkswagen Group now owns Lamborghini, the parent company paired the Sant’Agata automaker up with their Audi division, specialists in aluminum chassis construction. The underlying, lightweight aluminum framework houses the V10 amidships, and is roughly the same unit that underpins the related Audi R8. Ignore the Gallardo’s pedigree for a second and get behind the wheel, and you’ll find that Lamborghini’s excellent all-wheel drive system, suspension, and serious torque all work wonderfully together for a package that, unlike some older Lamborghinis, is exhilarating but not frightening to drive quickly. Plus there’s no mistaking it for much else, as the thrumming baritone exhaust note is quite distinct thanks to that unusual engine.
— Official description [1]

The 2005 Lamborghini Gallardo is a mid-engined sports car by Lamborghini featured in all Xbox 360 Motorsport titles.

Synopsis

The Gallardo debuted in 2003 as a competitor against Ferrari's V8 sports cars and as a better daily driver than the Lamborghini Murciélago. Like the Murciélago, it is all-wheel drive but powered by a smaller 5 liter V10 engine that outputs 500 hp (373 kW).[2]

The 2005 model was the final model year of the original Gallardo before it received a model update in 2006 and a facelift in 2008.
