Valentino Balboni has a history test driving for Lamborghini. But his stills exist behind more than just a steering wheel. He's a businessman and a designer for his own automotive part company, VB. And their latest creation is an exhaust that's almost art.
Balboni has developed a special exhaust for the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ. With both form and function, the sleek and smooth shape complements the noticeable drop in weight. Weighing 8.8 pounds, it's a good 33 pounds lighter than the standard exhaust. Made from grade 2 titanium, the shape is made to create maximum gas flow from each bank, while also cleverly emulating the shape of bull's horns.
The company's tagline, A New Dimension in Sound, gives the implication that whatever roaring comes out of the exhaust, it sounds good. Though currently, we have no footage to confirm this. Not that the Aventador SVJ needs an auditory tune-up, really. The 6.5-liter V-12 engine already sounds like gold to the ears.
According to a statement by VB, only 63 examples of the exhaust system will be produced. An additional 15 will also be made under a special "signature edition." Pricing for both options was unlisted, but we can guess it's somewhere in the realm of "too much for me."
