Sant'Agata Bolognese, 6th May 1963. Ferruccio Lamborghini's dream of becoming a sports car manufacturer began to become a reality.
From the beginning Lamborghini with a team of young engineers started out to disrupt an industry dominated by only a few manufacturers, with a passion for innovation they dispelled the dogmas of the sports car world.
These passions led to the creation in 1966 of legendary "Miura", which inspired the whole automotive industry to coin the term ''supercar'' and that spirit and unique design language continues in the DNA and the values that Lamborghini still shares with millions of people today.
The year 1966 was crucial for Lamborghini, which mounted the V12 engine on the P400 Miura, making it the fastest standard production car in the world.
In 2022, 60 years later, the last V12 pure internal combustion engine fitted on the Aventador Ultimae brings a legendary era to a close.
The 60th anniversary celebrations began in January with the opening of the newly renovated and remodelled museum in Sant'Agata Bolognese.
Located in the original factory, and rearranged for the celebrations to house an exhibition entitled ''The Future Began In 1963''.
The international celebrations then begin around the world with the Sant'Agata company holding 'Lamborghini Day's' in for all it's key key markets:
Also in September and of special interest to many Engine Notes members, Lamborghini Polo Storico, the brands heritage division responsible for the protection, preservation and restoration plans to organise the ''60th Anniversary Polo Storico Tour''; reserved for classic Lamborghini's in Italy.
