Tiff Needell of Fifth Gear pits the Lamborghini Gallardo up against a Ducati 999 motorcycle. Which vehicle comes out on top? Find out after the jump.
The Lamborghini V10 cylinder DOHC four valve V90 5 liter, 500 Hp, 510 Nm, is the concept solution for the high performance Gallardo.

The torque output is optimized in the full rpm range
