The Lamborghini Gallardo isn't the fastest model in the company's lineup, but it is certainly one of the most visually appealing. And one of the most interesting in that while it's styling is undeniably Italian, the basic mechanicals are from the Audi R8. This has come as a result of VW's ownership of both companies. There are some Audi sourced parts to be found inside the car as well. This gives it the enviable position of being a supercar of Italian styling fused with German engineering. The Gallardo makes the most of its R8 drive train, delivering 552 horsepower from its' mid mounted, 5.2 liter V-10 to all four of its wheels. With this kind of power, the Gallardo offers an amazing level of performance in its stock trim. However, for even more performance, Lamborghini offers a special edition called the Valentino Balboni edition. This model ups the ante by routing all of its power through the real wheels alone, bringing it even one step closer to a full blown race car and giving it the ability to kick the rear end around as needed, or wanted.
