The year-long celebrations, held in Italy and abroad, started on May 7 at Sant’Agata Bolognese, when 1200 km of Italy’s roads are invaded by hundreds of vintage and modern-day Lamborghinis.
Lamborghini was born under the sign of the Bull, at Sant’Agata Bolognese in Italy’s Emilia Romagna region, with a constant view to the future and to make innovative design and technology its signature.
Cars like the 350 GT, the Miura, the Countach, the LM 002 and today’s Gallardo and Aventador are the perfect embodiment of Lamborghini’s future vision.
“For 50 years, Lamborghini has been the object of dreams and the symbol of Made in Italy. Our supersports cars are always on the edge of the most advanced technological innovation and for this reason the claim that we have set for our anniversary is ‘100 years of innovation in half the time’.
Since our founder Ferruccio Lamborghini first founded the company, a characteristic inherent in our DNA is to address the challenge and not overcome it, but to push boundaries to achieve something even more extraordinary,” said Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. “The 50th Anniversary Grand Tour, with more than 700 participants representing 29 countries, is evidence of the global dimension our brand enjoys today, and the strength of the Lamborghini myth that continues to grow.”
