Valentino Balboni drifts his namesake Lamborghini (+video)

Valentino Balboni is the man behind the Lamborghini of the same name and a video has just hit the Internet with the famed test driver thrashing his own Lamborghini LP550-2 across a frozen countryside.

Balboni’s shows some Italian charm as he offers up some insight into Lamborghinis past and present, his time with the automaker and the development of the LP550-2, among others.

When questioned about the lack of all-wheel drive, Balboni says simply, “You need to control the car, the car doesn’t control you.” He backs it up with another inch-perfect powerslide and goes about his business. Brilliant.

Check out the video below.
