I remembered, because Autocar India carried a review of the Gallardo. Being a Lambo fan, I've pretty much memorised it. And I remembered "...despite this, an expert like Sanna can just about beat the e-gear away from zero"!!!
Sorry mate , my bad, I should have been a little more attentive.

But anyway, Balboni is still very well known and has Sanna really replaced him??

Im afraid youre wrong about A18.

It was designed by an Indian called Ajay Panchal. He also appeared in an Autocar article about the new generation of young designers.

Wrong on both counts, dude. But you are very close to the answer in A20.

Im sorry Im saying youre wrong in A20 when you are so close, but since we are talking such small figures, lets be a little more fussy, shall we?

A19. Dr Porsche

A21. Something Farina. Pinin was his nickname. Means small or little.

Balboni is legendary. I wish I was him. Yes, I'm pretty sure Sanna is the new driver. Googled his name, and it matched.

Not Sergio. He came along later.

The founder's name was Battista Farina. And yes, he was called Pinin because he was extremely short.

Im really sorry, there is a correction to be made, turbo's answer for A20 was actually right. I was always under the impression that only 99 cars had been made, but there is a little-known 100th car as he showed me.

Thanks a lot, turbo.

We've heard of FWD and RWD vehicles and their merits. Now....

A23: Which is the only vehilce to be sold as an optional FWD or RWD (no AWD). Yes you can buy the FWD version or the RWD version of the same vehicle. Name it.
