Welcome to the lamborghini.gallardo.se website!This website is made by Erik Jirhall in Sweden, as a tribute to some of my biggest passions: Sports cars and racing. Here you can find some pictures, videos and facts covering these interests. In particular you will find lots of material concerning my dream car, the Lamborghini Gallardo SE.
This website was born 2005-11-21.

Cars have always been my greatest interest ever since I was a little child. In the end of year 2005, when I was 30 years old, I decided to make my dream come true and to buy my ultimate dream car. I chose between the Lamborghini Gallardo and the Ferrari F430. The Ferrari is a truly amazing car, which I love very much. But when I saw the Gallardo for the first time at the car fair in Geneva 2003 I immediately fell in love! When Lamborghini in 2005 announced the SE version with even more power together with improved gearbox and chassis, completed with an extraordinary good looking two-tone colour on both the inside and the outside -then I knew what I wanted! Other things that also matters is the fact that I am used to driving 4WD cars, and also the fact that I don't want to drive what everyone else is driving. Is everyone else driving a Ferrari, you might ask? The answer is Yes, they do. Or at least they are driving either a Ferrari or a Porsche. On normal roads of course you don't see a Ferrari very often. But then I didn't buy the car to drive it on normal roads -in Sweden you aren't allowed to drive more than 110 km/h. And if you are failing to drive that slowly you can be sure there is a police car nearby who wants nothing more than to take your drivers license away... (Been there, done that...) The solution to these problems is to use the car on a race track. There you can have all the fun you can possibly want without risking your license and also under safe conditions! So therefore I am member of some car clubs. The most exclusive one is called RingRunners of Sweden. The members of this club are most likely driving the top-of-the-line-models of Ferrari and Porsche. If I had bought a Ferrari F430, I would be number 10 with this car in the club -what's the fun in that? Not to mention if I had bought a Porsche GT3 or GT3 RS -than I wouldn't be able to find my car in the parking lot until I had tried my key in the other 40 GT3's standing next to each other... BUT -now I will be numero uno (Nr. 1) with a Lamborghini Gallardo. And since there will only be 250 cars made in the limited SE (Special Edition) version, the risk of meeting another one in the street is minimal...
If you are living in Northern Europe and you want to drive on a race track, you should go see what available Track Days are offered by Gentlemen Racing Club. You do not need to be a member, you just pay for those Track Days that you wish to attend to. If you have an interest for cars and driving you will find out that this is the most fun you can have! After having practiced on some Swedish race tracks, you might be interested in going to the Mother of all Race Tracks. Now I'm talking about Nürburgring in Germany. It was built in 1925 and the 21 km long (!) track is truly amazing. This race track can hurt you if you don't treat it with respect. It takes many laps to learn, but once you have learned to navigate through the 33 left hand corners and the 40 right hand corners you will never want to do anything else! Sometimes I am seriously taking into consideration to find myself a nice looking German girl living nearby "the Ring", so that I would have a legitimate reason to move down there...
Anyway, I hope that you will enjoy your stay here at lamborghini.gallardo.se
