In the latest episode of Car & Driver abroad, Jethro Bovingdon was lucky enough to be flown to Italy to take one final spin in what could be Lamborghini’s last ever manually-operated production car. Although the Lamborghini Gallardo is essentially ten-years-old (which is ancient in supercar terms), Bovingdon is full of praise for this lightweight, rear-wheel drive Lamborghini with him even commenting that there’s no other car he’d rather by driving along such roads.
That’s high praise considering the Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 is the Italian marque’s cheapest and most basic supercar. It’s rear-wheel drive, comes fitted with steel brakes, non-adjustable suspension and ‘just’ 550 horsepower. Check out the video in full below!
