The United Arab Emirates is the land of the supercars. They even give them out in malls, as one extraordinarily lucky cab driver found out this week when he won a $ 204,028 (Dh750,000) Gallardo LP550-2 in a local lottery.
It all started (or re-started, rather) with the Gallardo LP 550-2 Valentino Balboni. Now the two-wheel-drive Lambo is a solid part of the company's Gallardo lineup, with the base-model LP 550-2 coupe and now — debuting in Los Angeles — the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 550-2 Spyder.
The newest bull in the pen's officially named after the most legendary test driver to ever tame a rambunctious Italian beast. Meet the 550 HP, RWD Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Valentino Balboni, a bull with a Mohawk.
Assuming this leaked set of photos are the Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2, then Lamborghini's finally given enthusiasts what they've wanted, dropping their grip-locked all-wheel-drive system in favor of rear-wheel-drive action. With a six-speed manual, could this be the perfect Lambo?
