Lamborghini Valentino Balboni Edition

Lamborghini vs Balboni

Ferrucio Lamborghini hired a young test driver in 1968 by the name of Valentino Balboni (pictured above). If you told Ferrucio that very same day, that young Balboni (age 19) would have his name on one of his cars, he most probably would have laughed in your face. Forward 30 years later and not only is Balboni’s name on a Gallardo, but a very special one.

The LP-550-2  Balboni designates that the car has a 550hp engine driving the two rear wheels. All Gallardo’s are all-wheel drive but not this monster! Power comes courtesy of a 5.2 liter V10 engine with a 0-60 estimated time of 3.9 seconds.

The Balboni is 265 pounds lighter because of it’s rear wheel drive configuration. Lucky owners will have 8 colors to pick and choose from with the white & gold stripes (running down the middle of the car) available on this model only. Prices will start at roughly $220,000 Dollars.

Found a nice video about the car and the legend it’s named after. Enjoy!
