Balboni vs. Merzario; The Lamborghini vs. Ferrari Rivalry In A Wonderful Short Video

The rivalry between Ferrari and Lamborghini goes way back. This video is a comedic historical depiction of the rivalry.

Oh, and the cars are absolutely to die for. Many of you that are somewhere between your late 30s and early 50s probably had a poster of the Ferrari 365 GTB/4 “Daytona” on your wall at one point. I know I did. It was only a few years later that I discovered the sensual Lamborghini Miura, and it too gained a coveted spot on one of my bedroom walls.

One could argue who the real stars of the video are but when both the Lamborghini Miura S “Millechiodi” and a Ferrari 365 GTB/4 “Daytona” share the screen, humans will take a back seat. In this case, Valetino Balboni, famed Lamborghini test-driver, and Arturo Merzario, famous as a race car driver for both Ferrari and Williams, and for his cowboy hat, are both quite famous in the world of performance automobiles.

The video is a light-hearted depiction of the competition that has long existed between the two Italian supercar builders. The sequence ends with a drag race where it looks like the Daytona wins by a chromed bumpers. Anyhow, if you watch only one video today, make it this one.

Also, the Miura backfires! And gated shifters!
