I like how these two aren't too far apart except from high speed acceleration

Just like Aventador and Huracan today

Yeah, but that was also the beginning of a new era for Lambo. Before that they were always known for incredible acceleration and top speed, but not exactly for handling.

And the first Gallardo did fairly well on track despite being heavier than the new Huracan. They didn't sell like hot cakes for nothing. And as for the Murcielago, 1800kg is still a lot for a supercar today.

I agree, the Gallardo was announced as the baby Lamborghini, and when it turned out to be just a little inferior to the Murcielago it was a bit puzzling.

The sales however, were life changing for Lamborghini as a manufacturer and the production numbers, for them, then, went through the roof.
