Let’s see. Which would you choose if you had to pick between a Ferrari 458 Italia and a Lamborghini Gallardo LP 550-2 Valentino Balboni?

Okay, we’ll provide some statistics to help out. The Ferrari 458 Italia is powered by a 4.5 Liter V8 engine equipped with a Ferrari flat crankshaft. It produces 570 HP at 9000 RPM which gives the future super car a power output of 127 HP/Liter. The Ferrari makes the 0 to 60 MPH sprint in just 3.4 seconds and won’t stop until it hits a top speed of 202 MPH.

Now, the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 550-2 Valentino Balboni is powered by a 5.2 litre V10 engine that delivers 550 hp. It can travel from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds and can hit a top speed of 199 mph.

So, 570 HP vs. 550 HP, two Italian cars. And the winner is?

This just comes to show how much Lamborghini cares for its employees, you don’t see any other automotive company doing this. Proud to be a Lamborghini fan.
