On most days, we spend our time working our tails off at work or – if it’s a weekend – enjoying some well-earned down time at the mall or doing some outdoor escapades. The folks at Motor Trend are just like all of us, except that on certain days, they can spend their afternoons doing something all of us wish we could do and get paid for it: testing out supercars like the Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Valentino Balboni Edition.

Talk about a way to spend an afternoon, huh?

In this video, we have them behind the wheel of the LP550-2 Balboni Edition and pushing the car for all its worth – and its worth a lot more than you think – in and around the mountains of California.

Check out the video and we won’t blame you for feeling a little green with envy after seeing it.

Trust us, we feel the exact same way.

Sweet car. Sometimes I do dream of having jobs like those of the people who tests this cars. I know that with such power and technology on a car, every car still goes to testing to ensure that it is a quality made car before it gets delivered. If that will be my job and my afternoon will indeed be not boring anymore. I mean it beats the heck out of sleeping. Lol.

The car really looks sleek and even at high speed, it still seems to be staying on the ground comfortably. Wish I can have one of those babies.

Lovely course! Drifting events should take place here. But honestly, driving here needs a lot of concentration and focus.
