Lamborghini made a radical change on its latest Gallardo supercar, it has replaced the all-wheel drive with rear-drive - in honour of its well-known test driver, Valentino Balboni. Lamborghini LP550-2 Valentino Balboni is now the only rear-drive Lamborghini in production.

The engine: 5.2-litre V10 unit putting out 5410kW and 530Nm of torque
The speed: 0 to 100km/h in 3.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 320km/h.
