LAMBORGHINI'S 50TH ANNIVERSARY

“100 Years of Innovation in half the time"



In 2013, the 50th year since it was founded, Automobili Lamborghini is participating in the annual Techno Classica fair at Essen, where Lamborghini will be showing two of its supercars that have made automotive history, at pavilion 7. Introduced in 1964, the 350 GT was the first mass-produced Lamborghini, while the 1972 P 400 Miura SV was the final evolution of the legendary Miura - the first super sports car with a modern design. Both vehicles on display were taken from the extensive collection of historic cars in the Lamborghini Museum at the company's headquarters in Sant'Agata Bolognese, Italy. An expert on replacement parts for classic cars will also be at the stand to provide information on original spare parts for early Lamborghini models. Source: Lamborghini

One of the most talked about car videos on YouTube this week is a Lamborghini Miura SV on fire in central London. Petrolheads look away now!
