Oh, cool.

The Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-V3244556969707979 (Valentino Edition)

I hear they have 8 more 'special edition' models in the works for 2010.

This one's legit though. Different drivetrain. RWD, not AWD.

Nothing wrong with having more LE models, unless it's another one of those Versace things with white paint and some handbags.

Yeah, I know what you mean.

I just find it kind of funny when I see 10 different models for one car.

i.e. Bugatti Veyron.

It'd look better in the white or the special blue tones they had on show. The stripe is nice too.

Also, the RWD Balboni is still a Gallardo. Lambo's flagship model is now the 670 SV and that is an absolutely killer design. Completely wipes the floor with the 458.

The SV is also about double the starting price of the 458. The LP550-2 is the better comparison.

The F430/430 Scuderia/458 aren't comparable to the Murcielago/LP640/LP670-SV in any way.

The Gallardo is a direct competitor with the 430/458.

Yes I know, I was simply refering to the flagship title, not the cost comparison per model.

That's definitely a worthy edition. RWD + 6mt.

Pricing on these is insane though. I wouldn't pay $200k+ for one of those even if I full well could.
