Italian supercar maker Lamborghini has announced details of a 1200-km grand tour through Italy to celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary.
The tour will take place from 07-11 May 2013, when hundreds of vintage and modern Lamborghini’s meet in Milan ahead of a 5-day parade through some of Italy’s most beautiful cities.
Lamborghini will fund the event directly and will channel 10% of the proceeds from participation and sponsorship fees into a fund to help rebuild social and cultural centres in the earthquake-hit region of Emilia-Romagna, Lamborghini’s spiritual home.
The event is expected to be the biggest Lamborghini rally in history, with owners and dealers from all over the world bringing hundreds of classic GTs and futuristic supercars to Italy to take part.
“Over the past 50 years, Lamborghini has represented the dream, legend and symbol of a unique, remarkable region – Emilia-Romagna – whose proud, determined people have given us models unlike anything else in the world,” said Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Lamborghini.
“Even today, now that we are an international enterprise, this deep bond with our local history and culture is still very strong. We are certain that the events in Italy and abroad will make Lamborghini’s 50th Anniversary a unique, memorable experience for all our fans, as they look forward to reliving first hand the emotions of the past, and savor the anticipation of a new and exciting future.”
Below is a provisional route map. Full details will be released in September.
