Lamborghini LP550-2

If there’s one thing the
Gallardo LP 550-4 doesn’t need, it’s an injection of insanity! But that
hasn’t stopped Lambo’s engineers from developing a wild limited edition
in honour of its most renowned test driver.

The clue to the
major modification is in the name – the LP 550-2 Valentino Balboni.
The ‘550’ standing for the power output and the ‘2’ indicating the
number of driven wheels - making this is the only Lamborghini that
sends power to the rear tyres rather than all four corners.

Every
element of the LP550’s set-up has had to be recalibrated to account for
the two-wheel drive transmission, including revised spring and damper
rates, new tyres and modified aerodynamics.

Around 30kg has been
cut from the standard car’s kerbweight too, and with power coming from
an identical 5.2-litre V10 producing 10bhp less than the standard car, it takes 3.9-seconds to shoot from 0-60mph
and on to a tantalising top speed of 199mph.

The special edition
is marked out by white and gold stripes running over the bodywork, and
a bold interior featuring white leather on the seats and centre console.

Only
250 examples will ever be produced, guaranteeing the car’s exclusivity.
But you better be quick - its price tag of £137.900 is almost £3,000
cheaper than the more commonplace LP 550-4.
