Want the chance to drive a Lamborghini or improve your driving skills in the ultimate super sports car? Automobili Lamborghini announces Lamborghini Academy programme for 2009
Lamborghini has announced its new Lamborghini Academy dates for 2009. With courses open to all sports car enthusiasts as well as Lamborghini owners, the track driving schools provide an extraordinary opportunity to experience the full potential of Lamborghini cars, alongside the Italian super sports car manufacturer's professional instructors.
The Track Academy course provides an entry into the Lamborghini Academy world. Held at various European race tracks from Spring 2009 onward, participants' driving skills are improved alongside a professional driver instructor, while exploring the full potential of the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4.
The Advanced Academy is the top level programme, and concentrates on optimum control and performance on the race track, fully supported by a professional invehicle telemetry system. Driving is undertaken in the Gallardo LP 560-4 and the Murciélago LP 640: the fastest and most extreme super sports car in its class.
All classes include technical and safety briefings, followed by handling and performance exercises, with instruction on how to get the 'ultimate kick' from race track driving! Participants improve their handling and feel of Lamborghini's permanent four-wheel drive cars, learn to manage understeer and oversteer; practice manoeuvres with and without ABS and ESP; master 'controlled drifting' and, of course, find the ideal 'racing line' on track.
As a reminiscence of this experience each individual participant gets his own incar-video with footage of the whole driving day as well as a photo CD of all the action of the day on the race track.
Lamborghini Academy courses start from 3,900.00 euro, including accommodation, cars at the race track and all driving instruction, but excluding travel. For full details, go to www.lamborghiniacademy.com, or contact your local Lamborghini dealer.
It has taken Lamborghini some years to get the successor to the Gallardo ready, and over that period of time a lot of prototypes have been photographed

We've seen this car as the Gallardo SE700 by Boxter before, but now it is called the Gallardo SR66-2 by Suhorovsky Design.
