Automobili Lamborghini is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, and as part of the celebration, the storied Italian brand is bringing two of the most legendary supercars in its history -- the 350 GT and the Miura P 400 SV - to the 2013 Techno Classica show at Essen. Both models were taken from the Lamborghini Museum at company headquarters in Sant' Agata Bolognese, Italy.

Lamborghini 350 GT:

The first mass produced Lamborghini was introduced in 1964. The GT was developed by Franco Scaglione, its 3.5 liter V12 engine perfected by Giotto Bizzarini. With a maximum speed of 155.3 mph, the 280 hp motor could get you there in no time, but for quick stopping power the four-wheel disc brakes would bring speeds down quickly. By the end of 1966 the company had produced 120 copies, while other versions (including two spyders, 350 GTS) were produced of the GT featuring a 4.0 liter version of the V12 with the same power as the original model but with more torque.

Lamborghini Miura P 400 SV:

Following in the footsteps of its famous big brother, the Miura S, the SV was built due to overwhelming demand for the previous model. The 400 SV was built as a more advanced and powerful version of the ones before equipped with a 4.0 liter V12 with 385 hp that helped push the car to a max speed of 180.1 mph. Although lacking the previous model's famous eye lashes, it was known for its more powerful engine, newer rear suspension and wider track. In all, 150 cars were made from 1971 to 1972.
