Default Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Valentino Balboni

Lamborghini Gallardo Lp550 2 Valentino Balboni Zurich Unveil — Autoblog
The new Lambo was named in honor of the automaker's longtime test driver. Featuring a 550-horsepower version of the Gallardo's familiar V10 engine and a comparatively low 3,042-pound curb weight, the rear-drive LP550-2 is reportedly capable of scurrying to 60 in just 3.9 seconds and up to a top speed of 199 mph. Check out the photo gallery below and pay special attention to the unique black-and-white racing stripe, Scorpious wheels hiding bright yellow brake calipers and transparent engine cover.

This is awesome, the stripes are looking really great. The yello brembo calipers are strikingly superb. Its definitely got that raging-bull look.

F430 has got a new thoroughbred, the F458... it'll be great to see the two meanos competing, I am awaiting to see a video of these two competing on the Autobahns or some airstrip in US.
One should visit the Ferrari website and check out the sounds they've uploaded, of this mean machine. Just by the looks of the two, it gives shivers.
