It has only been a few days since Lamborghini officially unveiled the special edition Gallardo LP 550-2 Valentino Balboni and the car has already shown up in a Paris dealership. Where better for this car to make an appearance than the fashion capital of the world, and if you are looking for a brand new speed machine, why not go to where they are sold. Thankfully there were a few cameras on hand to record what this rear wheel drive Lambo encounter.

The Gallardo LP 550-2 is powered by the same 5.2 litre V10 engine from the four wheel drive version and is a fully tuned version of the one in the upcoming R8. In the Gallardo it makes 550 HP. Weighing in at only 3042 lbs, the Italian super car can sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.9 seconds and hit a top speed of 199 MPH.

The rear drive raging bull will be limited to only 250 units, priced at $219,800 each. Not since the Diablo has the Italian automaker offered a rear wheel drive dream machine, taming this beast would be quite a treat at any price.
