Back in 2009, Lamborghini released a special supercar to honor longtime test driver Valentino Balboni. The Lamborghini Gallardo Valentino Balboni was a stunner with a unique yellow, white and black coat to communicate a sporty style. This car remains among the most beautiful special edition cars created by the marquee.
The Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Valentino Balboni—the stuff supercar dreams are made of
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
- Top speed of 199 miles per hour
Note the rather unique black and white racing stripe. The stripe really makes the yellow pop for this Lamborghini, and the overall look is finished off with a set of Scorpious wheels with bright yellow brake calipers. The engine cover is transparent, allowing gawkers a glimpse at the beast beneath, which is a nice touch.
