Lamborghini Gallardo Balboni

The Italian automaker has been manufacturing unique sports cars for over 40 years and a good example of a unique sports car manufactured by Lamborghini is the 2009 Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Balboni. This Lamborghini Gallardo Balboni was manufactured in the honor of Valentino Balboni who had a distinct influence on the character of the sports car manufactured by the Raging Bull. Valentino Balboni was the test driver of Lamborghini car for several decades and because of his fine-tuning and testing work, he offered a lot of tips that helped the engineers shape cars like the Miura or the current Gallardo and Murcielago models.

The Lamborghini Gallardo is the best way to honor the work of Valentino Balboni and to mark his retirement after 40 years of activity. But Balboni continues his work by traveling around the world as an ambassador of the Italian brand. Therefore, I think that this Gallardo was truly the best way to celebrate Balboni’s work. We all know that the Gallardo is the most successful car of all times with more than 9,000 units built because of its attractive design, and exclusive equipment and technology.
