Ferruccio Lamborghini 100th Anniversary Tour
2016 marks the year of the 100th birthday of Automobili Lamborghini’s founder, Ferrucio Lamborghini. This is no secret considering Lamborghini has revealed the CENTENARIO at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show to pay tribute. However, you might not know that his actual birthday was on April 28th.
Lovers of all the brand throughout the world posted messages on social media and expressed a word of tribute / hommage to this great visionary who changed the game back in the day, thus starting the most famous italian rivalry: Ferrari VS Lamborghini. That being said, the Museum Ferrucio Lamborghini celebrated in the best way possible: with a Tour. The latter featured some of the most awesome cars from the brand, driving in honour of Ferrucio. About 50 to 60 cars made the trip. There were various Italian & European Lamborghini Clubs taking part in this Tour, and they drove around in important places of the Lamborghini folklore / mythos. This is how the Lamborghini 100th anniversary tour looked like, escorted by police BTW:
There were all sorts of models from all sorts of years, both modern (Aventador, Aventador SV, Gallardo SE, Gallardo, Gallardo LP560, Huracan, Huracan spyder, Murciélago & Murciélago LP670 SV…) and « classics » (such as the Miura, Jalpa, Islero, LM002, Espada, Countach…). It’s always nice when « older models » also take parts in these celebrations which are part of the automobile history of the brand. Good thing YouTuber 18Bozzy92 was there to capture the whole thing.
I don’t know of a better way to celebrate and pay tribute to the founder of a brand, than by reuniting all of his best creations under the same purpose / goal. All ages, all models, all sorts of designs… and simply « drive » and enojy. I’m pretty sure famous Lamborghini test driver Valentino Balboni also was there, I would bet on it! The man is almost everywhere and his passion & kindness are without limits.
