Lamborghini saleswoman Heather Ballentine moonlights as an accomplished singer and showcased her latest album The Cat's Meow. The Lambo parked outside was just the cherry on the top.
On any workday, Heather Ballentine can be found selling exotic supercars at Grand Touring Automobiles, Uptown Lamborghini store in Vaughn, ON. However, she is also an accomplished singer who has had her music featured in numerous TV shows and films.
On the evening of October 15, Ballentine performed live at Lula’s Lounge in downtown Toronto, celebrating the upcoming release of her latest album The Cat’s Meow. This album was recorded by Grammy winning producer Pete Anderson and features retro country, rockabilly and big band and swing style music.
The event also benefited the Brandon’s Eye Research Foundation, a volunteer organization that supports patients and research for potentially blinding vision disorders. Apart from direct donations, 10 per cent of all proceeds from the sale of merchandise at the event were also donated to this charity.
Last but not least by any means, let’s not forget the automobile involved with this event, the 2015 Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4, which featured a custom red velvet wrap provided by event sponsor Sekanskin. This mid-engined exotic sports a 5.2L V10 that produces 610 hp, sent to all four wheels via a seven-speed, dual-clutch gearbox. Lamborghini claims the Huracán can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds, and top out at over 325 km/h. The 2015 Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 is on sale now, with a base price of $260,990.
