Lamborghini have opened the new Lamborghini Museum at the company’s headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese near Bologna. The opening was held to coincide with the first stage of the Miura Tour, the owners’ rally celebrating the iconic super sports car’s 50th anniversary, with a journey of over 500 km through the Italian regions of Emilia, Liguria and Tuscany. Two of the Miura ‘fathers’ made special appearances during the tour: Paolo Stanzani joined guests in Bologna, and Gian Paolo Dallara greeted the group at his company in Varano de’ Melegari.
Stefano Domenicali remarked: “The inauguration of the new Museum on the same day as the Miura Tour sets off, sends out a clear signal on Lamborghini’s commitment to honoring its history. The Museum, which has been designed as an authentic experience for visitors, will be a key attraction for an ever-increasing number of arrivals from around the world. The new layout now provides a richer experience of the world of Lamborghini where our history, engines, design and technology come together in a journey from the brand’s past to its future.”
The Miura Tour is the biggest Miura rally ever organized by Lamborghini in celebration of the iconic model’s fiftieth anniversary. The cars came from the United States, Japan and other European countries came to take in the cities of Bologna, Parma, Portovenere, Viareggio, Lucca and Florence.
