our REVIEW

Everybody that's into Lamborghini will know Valentino Balboni, the official test driver at Sant'Agata and probably the best PR they ever had.

This big and heavy book on Valentino contains an overload of period photos depicting how he went from walking onto the factory grounds at Lamborghini to become their top test-driver who eventually trained aspiring drivers for the company.

Even today Valentino Balboni is still a gret guy to meet at various events and club gatherings, always friendly and taking a minute to chat with you, I have been fortunate enough to meet him multiple times, always with a smile.

This is probably my most valuable book in my collection, and this is the English version, which is apparently even more difficult to find these days.
