One supercar that's had a long shelf life is the Lamborghini Gallardo.
Known for its barky, V10 powerplant and being one of the first bulls with an Audi influence, folks were concerned if it would either:
1) Dilute the brand
2) Lose that Italian flair, which makes this exotic marque SO unique
But, if I am not mistaken, it's been the BEST selling product out of S'ant Agata. And throughout the years it has really shined with its special editions. THINK: Superleggera, Valentino Balboni, Blancpain Edition and now the Super Trofeo Stradale.
Speaking of the Balboni, if you missed out on that unique Gallardo, essentially it was a preview of the latest entry-level Gallardo, the LP550-2. The two is an indication WHY this Gallardo is MUCH different than the rest. It's rear-wheel drive.
Now EVO Magazine gets behind the wheel to tell you if it's got the goods.
Where's the best place to try Lamborghini's rear-wheel-drive Gallardo LP550-2 for the first time? On a load of drift-friendly snow and ice, that's where. evo's Jethro Bovingdon finds some... in Inner Mongolia.
