The Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Valentino Balboni specifications:

  • 550 glorious horses
  • Powerful V10 engine
  • Svelte 3,042 pound curb weight
  • Rear wheel drive
  • Shreds the 0-60 mile per hour mark in 3.9 seconds

The engine cover is transparent, allowing gawkers a glimpse at the beast beneath, which is a nice touch. read more

(I could keep going with the ex jokes, but think a stop sign is in order). read more
