A Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Balboni supercar has been recently crashed in France after its driver tried to pass a Renault Express.
We have always said here on inautonews.com that where ever there will be exotic cars there will also be exotic car crashes and we still think that people should get a different driver’s license before being allowed to drive or own a powerful car. The latest example of such an unfortunate incident is coming all the way from France, where a Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Balboni has been recently crashed, after its driver tried to pass a Renault Express. The driver lost control of the Italian supercar and hit the car, the fire hydrant and landed on the grass. Two people in the French vehicle sustained minor injuries.
As a quick reminder, the LP550-2 Balboni is a limited edition of the Gallardo, named after the company’s test driver Valentino Balboni. The engine of the supercar is developing a total output of 542 horsepower and the total weight of the model is 1,380 kg (3,000 lb). The Balboni Edition is coming with rear-wheel drive and it’s the first Gallardo ever to use the 2WD. The 0 to 100 km/h acceleration takes just 3.9 seconds and the top speed of the supercar is 199 mph (almost 360 km/h). Prices of the Valentino Balboni Edition were starting at 162,000 euros (219,800 USD).
