To conclude my trip to Maranello, we made a detour in Sant'Agata Bolognese, the stronghold of another prestigious Italian brand: Lamborghini. The museum is built in the factory, which is also very new and modern, featuring the same style as the concessions, namely black glass.
I don't pretend to know the history of Ferrari, because of its complexity and richness, but for Lamborghini, I have no doubt, I do not know anything! So this report will not vocation you learn about the brand or model because most of them were unknown to me. It is more of a discovery models that have punctuated the history of Bulls.
The museum is quite large and the number of cars rather important. But first decoration that includes a former established with mechanical parts, engines or wheels collection.
One of my discoveries was the Formula 1. Associated with teams like Minardi or Lola Larousse, Lamborghini motorized F1 in the 80s. Not surprisingly, an affront to the Scuderia.
In another domain, which is not without remembering Ferrari, there are boat engines, but Offshore boats made to reach breathtaking speeds on the water.
And cars. Weather in against a grizzled day, added to a tour bus arrived at the museum I was not able to take time to detail the car, I did it quickly before the museum was invaded. Beginning in 1964 with the 350 GT:

As if not enough Aventador Roadster as a surprise, I met Valentino Balboni, tester of the brand for many years. Very nice, he took the time to chat with a few fans who recognized.
Thus ends this journey of two days in Italy. A really nice trip that does one wish to go back soon!
