But what I was reading was that to expect more 2 wheel drive exotics in the future from Lamborgini and others. That would rock!

Didn't they test that on Top Gear US? I can't remember but they had a speed test of 3 different lambos and I don't remember if the Balboni or the Superleggera won. But yeah, the Balboni is nice, and a good honor to him.

Just a side note that the XJ220 is one of my favorite cars. Such a beast for its time.
