Ο ζωντανός θρύλος της Lamborghini, ο διάσημος δοκιμαστής της ιταλικής φίρμας, ο Valentino Balboni, ανακοίνωσε πως δημιουργεί μια νέα εταιρία, την VB, η οποία θα κατασκευάζει βελτιωτικά εξαρτήματα για τα μοντέλα της Lamborghini.

Η πρώτη του δημιουργία είναι μια εξάτμιση τιτανίου, ειδικά κατασκευασμένη για την Aventador SV. Θα παρουσιαστεί στο περιθώριο του Pebble Beach την επόμενη εβδομάδα, με την εξάτμιση να ζυγίζει μόλις 6,3 κιλά, ενώ υπόσχεται μια “νέα διάσταση” στον ήχο που παράγει. Μόλις 30 εξατμίσεις θα κατασκευαστούν, με την κάθε μια, να απαιτεί 350 ώρες για να δημιουργηθεί.

The VB logo. 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.
