Lamborghini Shows Off Newly Renovated Museum

Lamborghini Shows Off Newly Renovated Museum

If you’re a die-hard Lamborghini lover, you’re going to want to book a trip to Italy soon.

The supercar maker just inaugurated its newly renovated Lamborghini Museum at its headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese near Bologna.

The museum’s been entirely overhauled. It has a new layout, along with new multimedia displays and the works. Lamborghini says the museum is both a look back at the past five decades as well as a look into the future.

Colors really pop in the new museum, which features brightly colored supercars against a white and gray backdrop. The first vehicle visitors come across is a 1963 350 GT V12 roadster, which was the first production car built by the automaker.

The central part of the first floor is dedicated to the Miura. Lamborghini is marking the Miura’s 50th anniversary in June with a road tour through Italy. The display also features the rolling chassis which demonstrates the car’s technological innovation as dreamed up in 1965 by designers Gian Paolo Dallara and Paolo Stanzani.

On the upper floor, all the main Lamborghini models are on display, starting with the current Aventador and going back to the front-engined classics such as the 400 GT.  One area is dedicated to the world of motor racing.

A technology area features the brand’s most famous engines and its evolution through models like the Diablo with four-wheel drive, the P 140 with its aluminum chassis, the Sesto Elemento and its carbon fiber body, and the Asterion with its hybrid design.

Oh, and of course, there is a Lamborghini Urus in the house. The SUV is currently being developed and scheduled to hit the road in 2018. It’s not Lamborghini’s first SUV though. That honor goes to the boxy LM002, nicknamed the “Rambo Lambo” that came out just before the original Hummer and was powered by the Countach’s V12 engine.

The original Lamborghini Museum opened in 2001.
