It’s impossible for us to pass up any new Lamborghini, especially one tailored to those who can appreciate the old-school techniques of good ole’ rear wheel drive. As the name implies, this upcoming Lambo supplies all 550 horses directly to the rear wheels, and should be a tad lighter thanks to the lack of a complicated all-wheel-drive system and the ensuing hardware. Judging by pictures, the beautiful gated shifter and typical Lamborghini dashwork are supplied, with alcantara throughout. This special edition baby bull is officially named the Gallardo LP550-2 Valentino Balboni; for those unaware, Balboni is the fabled automaker’s greatest and most tenured testdriver and longtime confidant of Furruccio Lamborghini himself. A limited run of 250 will be produced.
