      This new facelift is really showing how old the Gallardo is. The last facelift was excellent but the new 560-4 is hideous with the new angles and such. That 570 looks great though.

      The main "gallardo" is there, they're just making it to look like a newer Aventador or something.

      The Gallardo is long overdue for a complete redesign. They keep popping out new models, but has lost a lot of its appeal IMO.

      The older Gallardo was best. Now it's just morphing into a Murc.

      The nice part is that LP 570-4 Edizione Tecnica has about the same horsepower as the Murciélago had when introduced.

      Meh, it has some odd design elements that don't quite flow. It looks like it started off properly, but then ended up resembling a product of pork barrel politics.

      Isn't that an Audi radio from 10 years ago? Unless they kept the same general shape, it look way old. Same goes for the temp controls..

      The interior looks really dated. Pretty crazy to sell a 200k+ car with a 10 year old Audi center console inside.

      The fact that it's 10 years old wouldn't bother me, if it works. The fact that it's off an Audi, does sorta bother me. But then again, the Aventador has bespoke everything in the center console and it still somehow screams Audi. I guess Lambos back in the days were exotic in that department, too, and "exotic" showed in homemade looking controls compared to those of mass production cars. I'm a major dash stroker and to me the Aventador's dash is very nice, but I guess I'd want something nicer/more special than soft-touch plastic buttons in my $$$ Aventador.

      Its not really the fact that its an Audi center console, its that fact that its an outdated console that even Audi doesnt use anymore.

      ??? The center console looks amazing, the fact that it is 10 years old and looks so wonderful is amazing.

      Only on TCL will people be complaining about one of the worlds most sought-after car companies because they dont like the center console

      Both of these cars are stunning, and I could only DREAM of ever owning one someday
