Bologna - Arguably Lamborghini's most famous test driver Valentino Balboni takes a spin in the automaker's classic Countach QV.

Balboni joined the company in 1968 as a trainee mechanic. He quickly moved up the ranks and soon Ferruccio Lamborghini asked him to test drive his company's newly-built supercars. 

Dream job

Balboni has reportedly driven nearly 80% of all new Lamborghinis. A video highlights his journey with Lamborghini.

According to the uploader: "Featuring Valentino Balboni driving the 1986 Countach QV Downdraft GLA12997, made specially for the CEO of Lamborghini at the time, Patrick Mimran."
