Gallardo clutch life

How many miles do you actually get out of your Gallardo clutch? Please specify if its egear/6MT, whether its modded or not and whether you track it or not.

E-gear

Completely dependent upon how you drive the vehicle. The magic numbers are those closest to 5 (new clutch) and for reference I've seen vehicles with 24k miles @ 2.8, a vehicle with 10k miles at 2.6 and a car with 3k miles at 3.3.

I've got about 4,000 miles on mine and I think I need a new clutch soon... it's E-Wear and has seen 2 Giro's and 1 track day.

mostly because I smoked the **** out of it when I first bought the car trying to park it

Seen a guy @ one of our local meets in a Murci, must of been his first day, lurching back and forth trying to park and almost bumped a friends TT Viper. Not a pretty sight.

E-Gear usually goes in between 6-9,000 miles. Some have needed it at 3,000 & odd cases of 15,000 which is probably highway miles.

Manual - completely depends on the driver

TTG Manual - customer with 8,000 miles & still going

I had 21750 miles on my MY07 Gallardo Spyder (E-gear) and the last measurement was around 2.6
I had performed about 10 performance launches and drove the car in cities, highways, everything. The only thing I didn't have to do was dirve the car uphill and things like that.

Does the superleggera have a special clutch? Sprite from Lambopower has 15k miles and 80% left on his original clutch.

Wow. That price includes a new OEM Lambo Clutch? If so, that's a good deal...
