The 2009 Gallardo is a 560-horsepower, 2-door, 2-passenger luxury sports car, or convertible sports car, available in two types, the LP560-4 Coupe and the LP560-4 Spyder.

The 2009 Lamborghini Gallardo gets a larger engine with a new name to match. The Gallardo LP560-4 boasts a 5.2-liter V10 engine is positioned longitudinally (Longitudinale Positore) and produces an impressive 560 horses. The 4 in the name refers to the Viscous Traction system first introduced on the Diablo VT in 1993 that relies on a viscous coupling in the transmission to distribute torque between the front and rear axles. Updated headlights feature running lights that consist of 15 LEDs, and new, larger air intakes are more prominent than on its predecessor, increasing the flow of air to the engine. New taillights, cooling vents, bumper and diffuser for the completely redesigned rear makes the Gallardo LP560-4 look extremely wide.

Upon introduction, both trims are equipped with a standard 5.2-liter, V10, 560-horsepower engine that achieves 12-mpg in the city and 20-mpg on the highway. A 6-speed manual transmission with overdrive is standard, and a 6-speed automatic transmission with overdrive is optional.
