May 7, 2013

Lamborghini is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a Grand Tour.

Starting from Piazza Castello in Milan on May 8, it will be the largest ever gathering of Lamborghinis, with 350 expected to take part.

The 350 cars (320 registered participants and 30 courtesy cars for VIPS) have been arriving at the parc fermè at Piazza Castello in front of the Sforzesco Castle. Together, they will make a convoy approximately 2.5 miles long with 190,000hp.

A press conference to announce the start of the Grand Tour was held at the Pirelli Foundation in Milan to highlight the partnership between the two companies since 1963 - ever since Lamborghini was founded.

A photograph of the 350 Lamborghinis showed 29 countries participating, with the most substantial representation from the United Kingdom, with a staggering 71 cars making the journey. They have more than even Italy, followed by Germany and Switzerland with more than 30 participants each.

Additionally, there are 21 cars from the USA and 17 from China. The other countries represented are: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, France, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Ireland, Japan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Principato di Monaco, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, The Netherlands, Tunisia, Ukraine.

The youngest driver was born in 1991 and hails from Kuwait, while the oldest is 75 and from France.

Historic Lamborghinis include three 350 GTs, five 400 GTs, 17 Miuras, eight Espadas, two Jaramas, six Urracos, 15 Countach, one LM 002, 21 Diablos and 36 Murcielagos.

The record for number of cars goes to the Gallardo, the most successful Lamborghini model of all time, with 123 examples registered by the participants.

The first destination of the Lamborghini Grand Tour will be Bobbio, the soul of the Trebbia Valley. The day will conclude in Forte dei Marmi, one of the most exclusive seaside resorts on the Tyrrhenian coast.

The convoy then arrivs on May 9 in Rome, passing through the base of the 4° Stormo of Air Force at Grosseto. The next day they will head to Bologna, crossing the towns of Orvieto, Arezzo and San Giustino Valdarno, where all participants will stop for lunch at the Tenuta il Bobbio.

In the evening, the cars will arrive in the center of Bologna at the Palazzo Re Enzo. The next morning, the 'Concorso di Eleganza Lamborghini 50° Anniversario' will be held, which is open to all the historic cars.

On the 11th, the Tour will end in Sant'Agata Bolognese, HQ of Lamborghini where a gala dinner will celebrate the 50th Anniversary.
