Lamborghini Caught Testing Spider Version of RWD Gallardo LP550-2 Valentino Balboni

by Alex

Lamborghini seems to be working on the development of a no hood version of its limited-run Gallardo LP550-2 Valentino Balboni special. The super car seems to have been named after the Italian company’s most renowned test driver. The testing of the mule in and around the famous Nürburgring race track was spied by some.

The Gallardo Spyder LP550-2 Valentino Balboni, like the coupe model, will deviate from the standard Gallardo’s four-wheel drive system. The car would feature a lighter rear-wheel drive configuration. The sedan would be powered by a SDA 5.2 liter V10 engine that develops a peak power output of over 550 HP and 398 lb-ft of peak torque levels with the engine humming at 6500 rpm. The engine is hooked up to either a manual transmission gearbox or an e-gear automated transmission system with column-mounted shift paddles.

The super car would, in addition, feature a 45 percent limited slip differential, an upgraded chassis in conjunction with a new suspension setting, new alloy wheels along with tires and also a recalibrated ESP.

As we are already aware, the mechanical hardware of the Gallardo Spyder LP550-2 Valentino Balboni is identical to the coupe model. The super car is expected to make its debut very soon in this fall at the Paris Motor Show.
