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.
