Video: Ride Along in a Lamborghini with Valentino Balboni

Supercar

Lamborghini's legendary former chief test driver is shown behind the wheel of a LP570-4 Superleggera.

Ever wanted to experience a Lamborghini with legendary test driver Valentino Balboni? It's fair to say that any of us would in a heartbeat. And now this video has just appeared online showing what one lucky car spotter managed to do. Behind the wheel of a Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera, Mr. Balboni is clearly a master of fast driving. He started off working at Lamborghini as a mechanic apprentice in 1968. He was later asked by Ferruccio Lamborghini himself to test drive all of the newly built supercars.

All told, he's driven about 80 percent of all Lamborghini ever built. If there was ever a dream job in this world, he certainly had it. He even has his own Gallardo model named after him, the rear-wheel-drive, six-speed manual equipped LP550-2 "Valentino Balboni edition." He's still with Lamborghini as a consultant, but it's great to see him behind the wheel once again.
