Default Do Gallados have a Cruise Control?

I take my 2006 Gallado on some very long trips and have not figured out if it has a cruise control feature. I checked the owner's manual for "Cruise Control" and did not see any.

Sure wish it had it though. Road trips suck without cruise. With electronic throttle bodies it is only a switch and some lines of code.

It has no cruise control.

For long trips the control is located below your ankle!

My big problem is that I can not hold the speed steady and before I know it I am doing 90 MPH.

Thanks for your input. ajpeters

I realize that Gs aren't designed to be GT cars, but why wouldn't they give them cruise control? Like Robgreg75 said, it isn't like it adds any material weight, just a tiny bit more of design. Does it come down to an image thing? Or is there more engineering than one would think and it isn't worth the time on a performance car?

Cruise control is for gays and the French.

Cruise control?? lmao

Cruise control ain't allowed on no Lambo!

btw, when cruising on long trips, does anyone else kinda get lulled by the rhythmic humming of the V10 when you're just chillin along at 80 mph? It kinda reminds me of a loud sewing machine.
