Valentino Balboni seems like the type of guy who might have a few good work stories. Balboni began work at Lamborghini in 1968, eventually rising to the role of Chief Test Driver. He was forced into retirement by Italian Government age regulations in 2008 but continues to consult to the Italian carmaker and adds a touch of magic to everything he’s involved with.
We dug up this video of him back in the drivers seat of a 1986 Countach QV Downdraft made specifically for Lamborghini CEO at the time, Patrick Mirman.
Cool as a cucumber doesn’t get close to describing this legend.
