Lamborghini Gallardo Valentino Balboni

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.

Springs, dampers, stabilisers, tyres and the aerodynamics have all been adjusted. The rear differential and the e-gear transmission has been redeveloped. The ESP program has also been recalibrated to allow for controlled oversteer.
