So, I honestly care more so for the 08 and I prefer the 5.0 (04-08) in general for the Gallardo series. To me the 5.2 (LP560/570/550) lost some bass and isn't as loud and the rev-matching isn't as ferocious as it is in the Gallardo 5.0 06-08 (04-05 isn't that great). But the 08 SL just seems more fun and more raw whereas the 2011 seems too techy :nerd: From what I have heard the 5.2 (LP560/570) is more refined than the 5.0 (04-08), I have never riden in or driven a 5.2 but I have riden in a 5.0 (Spyder) and it's a dream in my opinion.
The downshifts are LOUD AS HELL and it just felt more fun, yet to drive either one though (5.0 or 5.2):(. So, what do you guys think? 5.0 (08 SL) or 5.2 (LP570)

the 11 is a much better car overall though. more user friendly as well.

I will ask a friend of mine who has an 08 and is looking for an 11.

I would say 60% of a car for me is its sound....the 570 just isn't loud enough.
As for looks, I would just get an RSC retrofit for the front bumper and call it a day....

Won't an exhaust system just fix the problem? I don't have experience with the 11 so I can't give a valid opinion but in the videos 08>11 as afar as sound.

Well, I was talking stock. However, if one car is louder than the other stock, exhaust is only gonna make it louder....

You know Elijah, you can remove the muffler and resonator and it will be loud as shit! Looks, the 2011 wins but lambo has quietened down their cars for city use as more lambos are daily driven now so the vent systems don't allow exhaust noise until roughly 4500 rpm. Remove that system and it's loud the whole time.

hard to decide between the two, without test driving i cant really make a good judgement but in terms of design, i think the 11 has some increased aesthetics over the 08

The same exhaust on an '08 and '11 will sound totally different. The compression is higher on LP550/560/570 and, more importantly, the crank throws have been modified so that the LP cars have 90* crank throws and are odd-fire, as opposed to the 72* crank throw, even-fire early cars. This change made for a more rigid crankshaft and allowed them to raise the rev limit to 8500 RPM, at the tradeoff of some more low RPM second order vibrations. It's also what gives the LP550/560/570 that more guttural growl/bark as opposed to the smoother tone of the early cars.

The LP Gallardo's are definitely a improvement, but regarding exhaust note, it will never sound like the previous car unfortunately. I feel the same thing happened to the Ferrari 360 and 430. The 360 has much better sounding engine then the 430.

Here is a 08 G SL with Kreis Sieg. No embedding so click on the link YouTube - Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera w/ Kreissieg F1 Exhaust **LOUD** (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1NSTT7vODY)

In short, the LP560 isn't as loud as the 5.0 is what your saying?

I agree, I love the styling of the LP and the technological advancements made....I just honestly think stock or aftermarket the 08SL is louder. To be honest I think the 5.0 is louder than the 5.2....

As far as the power goes, I'm not a really a power hungry person (actually I am) but I think a software upgrade on an 08SL could bump it right up to the power of an LP570. But I totally understand what you're saying about the TT, just want to have the best....I think anyone would....

As someone who went from an 08 GSL to an 09 560 (not even SL)...WITHOUT A SINGLE DOUBT I would take the 09-11 any day. I changed out the exhaust day 1 to Capristo which solves the sound prob if there even was one; my 08 GSL doesnt even come close to the sound the 560 makes. I opted for a 560 vs SL since I wanted to personalize it, and make my own GSL...which is still in the works :)

Well, first off, congratulations!! And about your transition, I think that even with Capristo it's not necessarily ALL about flat out decibels. Even IF the LP560/570 was louder, it doesn't sound as good. And first-person I KNOW that the rev-matching in the LP570 isn't as beastly as the 08SL. Don't get me wrong, the Gallardo I love and after 4 hours at Lamborghini Atlanta today I WOULD BUY an LP570 :D......but I also would still very much and am considering the 08SL.

Would you happen to have any pictures and/or video of your project?? At the end of the day I LOVE anything Lamborghini :D

Thanks! I didnt say louder really, I mean it is...but it sounds amazingly BETTER. More throaty, more bark on shifting, etc.

I didn't even bother to record the SL, it was too tame IMO, which is why I had the Capristo installed before I even took delivery new. I took one video of the Capristo, but when the valves were open, it completely overloaded the mic so I need to redo. IMO, the stock 560 and 570 sound better than the SL ever did. I will be creating some new vids and will send your way.

If you are in the market now for an e-gear car, the 560\570 is far superior to the previous. Its worth every penny. I moved out of the 08 SL in a little over 1 year just for the e-gear upgrade. Do yourself a favor and buy 09 or better :D Ask any of us who made the move...

08 or 11, exhaust won't stay stock for long at all. I prefer the growl of 11. Growl is what one feels because of the deep bass. Flatness, one just hears.

I think Diablos are better looking but are not as reliable (from what i hear). Gallardos are fun but get boring quite fast. Not much of a looker. Driving wise, Diablo for me is more fun. Gallardos are nice sure, but lack something for me. it's personal preference I guess.

Driven a Diablo, but not to a extent where I could unleash the Bull within. Would love to do a comparo if someone lends me both lol. Both cars are exact opposite. One is well trained/refined beast, point it and it will go there. Diablo on the other hand is more like point it, step on it, and next few words are something along this line, "OH BOY here we GOOOOooo."

Shape of Diablo is timeless, it will never get old. For me that is the one car that defined Exotic.

that's why I stated Nasser's LP670 SV dominating. His is catless and mufflerless. I heard it from several blocks away in london this past summer. The murcies are no doubt a dramatic beauty of orchastrated pistons running in perfect form to create a sound that drives a man's dick up and a woman's panties down... Only a lambo. Only a murci... Ferrari lovers are harder to please. :lol:

I dont think you should be basing your decision off of something that could easily be changed by aftermarket exhaust systems...

But thats the thing, in my opinion it's more than that.....the 08 is just that much more raw!!! I have heard a LP570 and it is loud and it does sound good, just not as nice as the 08 :bow1:

Dude give it up. You are obviously looking for someone to justify your 2008 GSL purchase. People who have spent thousands of miles seat time in both cars are telling you different...but you still insist on your opinion. It's your opinion, if you like the way the 08 sounds, go buy it already and stop pushing for others to agree with something the majority disagree with... :D

I apologize, you're right I should have not been so biased, I just wanted hear others opinions on why or why not the 08 is different/better than 11.....but yes, I am set on 08 UNLESS someone can sway me ;)

As far as a purchase, that won't be for another 4-5 years :(

So, who thinks the 08 or 11 is better, and why? Just wanna see where peoples heads are....

I would say 60% of a car for me is its sound....the 570 just isn't loud enough.
As for looks, I would just get an RSC retrofit for the front bumper and call it a day....

Done :D And I love it.

I'd take the 2011 because there a handful out there with 6 speeds, and the 2008 was never sold a 6 speed IIRC

Mr. Babystat, what you've just posted is one of the most insanely idiotic things we have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational post. Everyone in this thread is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no kudos, and may God have mercy on your soul.

You are an 18 year old high school kid baiting the forum with silly questions. That is why we are busting your balls.

You don't have to front, just enjoy the site... FYI - I am 37 and sold my company to goog and still don't have a lambo....

How many more times are you going to ask and re ask the same question and get the same answers.

Is there a point to this thread?

Why are you polling lambo owners on opinion and advice if you arent planning on buying one for half a decade?:confused:

I think the facts are simple. People have different taste. 2011 is faster, more reliable, sounds better (IMO), looks better (IMO). He prefers a 2008. That's his choice. I prefer an F50 over an Enzo. Just because the Enzo is faster, more advanced and by far more reliable doesn't mean I will go for it over the F50. Just sayin

Sorry, not in a car where a paddle-shift system is offered, however, in "muscle cars" or cars that don't come any other way I.E. Corvette I'd love a manual......

Thank you chris, I WAS NOT saying the 2011 is bad, I love the LP (5.2) Gallardo's, however, I prefer the 08. I was just asking people's opinions and why. I COULD turn this into Lamborghini vs Ferrari or Porsche vs Aston Martin.....but that's totally different.

11 over the 08 any day!!! not even close
Why? Sound, looks??

What I'd like to know is why does this thread even exist if you won't be buying until 5 years from now? By that time the replacement for the lp-560 will be out along with many other different cars. I'm willing to bet that your choice for what car you want will change many times. I went through at least 15 cars before I narrowed it down to 3 then once that happened it took me forever to decide that I wanted a Supra.

Because this wasn't meant to be a thread for, "Hey L4Pers, I have a billion dollars and I don't know what to buy :confused:"

It was just supposed to be an opinion/watercooler debate on the 2008 SL vs 2011 SL. Plain and simple.....I like to hear what goes on in other people's heads concerning cars (mainly lamborghini)....It's obvious from previous posts, this isn't welcome here :(

The debate is over, the verdict is out, the water cooler is empty. Every person with true experience has validated the 2011 is better, and even SOUNDS better regardless of what your ears are telling you. Even the Lambo dealer has chimed in with technical details on why the 11 sounds better. Maybe we can get Balboni on the here for you, but you'd probably disagree with him too :D

It's not that it was a stupid question...it just turned into one after you got many great answers, but you still wanted to disagree and look for someone that would side with you...I dont understand what the point of that was :confused:

People on this forum are more than happy to help, but when you balk at all the advice given to you, people get a little upset.

There is no such thing as a stupid question... only stupid answers.

Think about it. Let it soak in. Feel it. Swish it around in your mouth for a second... don't spit...not yet...
