Cars were never my thing. Until one day at a bookstore, when a book on Lamborghini’s made its way into my hands. How was I never aware of the artistry, of the beautiful engineering of this Italian car? I was introduced to the power of a V12 engine, to the coolness of things like cylinder bank angle, and a yearly production limited to several thousand.
Recently I got to check one off the bucket list, and much sooner than anticipated. Thanks to Travelzoo, I recently drove a Lamborghini Gallardo at Boston’s Gillette Stadium. We drivers were encouraged to floor it while racing around the track. How could you not? It’s as if the car begged you to.
Here is the entire ride caught on camera, accompanied by a great wingman. And 560 powerful Italian horses.
