Video: Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 on ice by Evo Magazine

550bhp + RWD + Ice = slidey fun...

It seems to be a bit of a slow news week in the car world so far this week, but that doesn’t stop us bringing you things to excite the petrol-powered areas of your brain. We love the Lamborghini Gallardo here at TorquingPoint, it may be a bit of a dinosaur when compared to the Ferrari 458 and McLaren MP4-12C but it still excites us like no other car – it’s just so raw and, well, manly compared to the rivals.

In this video Evo Magazine’s Jethro Bovingdon gets to sample the latest entry level Gallardo, the rear wheel drive LP550-2 on ice in Inner Mongolia. Does it tell us much about the car? Nope. Does it look and sound fantastic? Yes, indeed it does…

Lamborghini also announced recently that they will be offering an LP550-2 Spyder. For us, that model with a manual gearbox would be the absolute best Supercar. Raw, rear wheel drive, shifting gears yourself, roof down to hear that glorious V10 wailing away behind you – utter perfection.

So if anyone has one on order – please get in touch as we’d like to drive it. There’s a jam donut in it for you.
