Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Valentino Balboni
Notice the ‘-2' in the nomenclature? Yes, this was a Lamborghini Gallardo worthy of its oversteery heirs. It's the lighter, 552bhp rear-wheel-drive only Gallardo, named after chief test driver Valentino Balboni; a man hired by Ferrucio Lamborghini himself and one familiar with every Lamborghini ever built. He's also an absolute gentleman, as TG.com found out earlier this year.
It also came in Spyder flavour, too. Both were excellent, and they'd later form the basis for the standard LP550-2 coupe and Spyder editions.
