The vehicle had dry weight of 1,380 kg (3,000 lb).

VERDICT:
There are only two minor issues I noticed that AUTOart missed on this model:
1. In the AUTOart website, this particular model’s color is/was announced as Verde Ithaca. In reality, it is a bit far from Verde Ithaca but rather light green metallic. Nevertheless, the model still looks good in this shade of green.

2. When Valentino Balboni gave the specs for his signature car, first he mentioned for the Gallardo VB was to be built in 2-wheel drive with 6-speed manual stick shift. Aa released the LP560-4 with manual stick shift and released this model with paddles shifter. It should have been the other way around.
