Have you heared about Valentino Balboni? He is an italian who tuned the Lamborghini driving dynamics for the last four decades. You read that right: for the last 40 years, Balboni tuned the chassis of SantAgata Bolognese supercars.
Now, Valentino decided to launch his own brand, named “VB”. VB is a tuning house dedicated to Lamborghini models that wants to offer drivers Valentino unique driving thrills.
The green-white-red stripes stand for the Italian flag. The homeland of Valentino. Their streamlined perspective represents the legendary “Balboni highway”. This road along the factory (the Via Modena), where Valentino Balboni used to drive all the cars he tested, became famous for all those who paid a visit to the places of the Raging Bull. Another fascinating side of the logo is the shape of the “B”, which comes from two real curves, located in Sant’Agata Bolognese, and where Valentino impressed every person sitting in the passenger’s seat, with his peculiar way to master them at high speed.
At Concorso Italiano (Seaside, Monterey Bay, California), on August 20, Valentino Balboni will officially unveil VB’s first achievement: a new dimension in sound. It will be the state of the art, limited edition, ultralight titanium exhaust for the almighty Lamborghini Aventador LP-750 SV.
With a total weight of 13.8 lbs (6.3 kg) and only 30 numbered pieces produced, it requests more than 350 hours to manufacture each piece.
