The first part of Lamborghini’s efforts to celebrate the brand’s 50th anniversary with a special edition Aventador was not very brilliant to be honest. There are aftermarket versions of the Aventador that are far better than that celebratory model. The next part is much better, as it is a Grand Tour that brings 350 raging bulls together for that largest Lamborghini parade ever.
The first leg of the Grand Tour kicked off in Milan yesterday with 350 cars (320 registered participants and approximately 30 courtesy cars for the press and guests) forming a convoy of some 4 km long and 190,000 hp on the road. They come from 29 different countries and bring with them more than 700 guests. Emilia Romagna’s tourism is benefiting big time from being the city of Lamborghini.
UK has the biggest number of cars attending the event with 71 cars, followed by Italy, Germany and Switzerland with over 30 participants each. In addition, there are 21 cars with plates 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.
As for the cars, there are three 350 GTs, five 400 GTs, seventeen Miuras, eight Espadas, two Jaramas, six Urracos, 15 Countachs, one LM 002, 21 Diablos and 36 Murcielagos, as well as 123 Gallardos. The youngest driver is a Kuwaiti born in 1991 and the oldest is a 75 year old Frenchman.
