2013 - Lamborghini's 50th Anniversary-lamborghini50logo13.jpg

Exactly 50 years back, in 1963, Ferruccio Lamborghini presented his first car to the world which bore his name - the 350 GTV. Now, after the Miuras, the Countaches, the Diablos, the Murcielagos, the Gallardos and the Aventadors have become shining stars in Lamborghini's glittering international career, the company is all set to celebrate it's 50th Anniversary.

To commemorate the occasion, the sports car manufacturer will unveil a one-off special edition based on the Aventador J. “It would be a one-off design, and will not be a revival or retro”, said Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann, although he declined to elaborate.

Apart from this, Lamborghini owners and dealers from around the world will gather in Italy to mark the 50th anniversary celebrations by being a part of an official tour. It will commence on 7th of May and will continue till the 11th May 2013, covering 1,200 km of Italy’s roads. The route will begin from Milan and end at the location where Ferruccio laid the foundation stone for the first manufacturing plant, in Sant’Agata Bolognese.

Official Press release:-


2013 marks the 50th anniversary of Lamborghini. The company's history is one of challenges and uncontested records, set by the ambitious talent of its founder Ferruccio Lamborghini, who decided to create the world's most beautiful - and powerful - super sports cars at Sant'Agata Bolognese in Italy's Emilia Romagna region.
100 years of innovation in half the time: Lamborghini was born under the sign of the Bull, with a constant view to the future, a desire to achieve the impossible and to make innovative design and technology its signature.
Cars like the 350 GT, the Miura, the Countach, the LM 002 and today's Gallardo and Aventador are the perfect embodiment of Lamborghini's future vision.
"I want to build the perfect car" was the declaration with which Ferruccio launched his ambitious project: an extreme, no-compromise, authentically Italian concept that has always distinguished Lamborghini as an automotive brand of excellence.
Today, Lamborghini is a company which has remained true to its origins yet has an international reach: present in 45 countries, it operates through a network of more than 120 dealers. However, the heart of Lamborghini's production remains at its home in Sant'Agata Bolognese,the same place where the factory's foundation was laid in May, 1963.


Lamborghini will celebrate its legendary 50th anniversary throughout 2013.
The year-long celebrations, held in Italy and abroad, will culminate on May 7 - 11, when 1200 km of Italy's roads will be invaded by hundreds of vintage and modern-day Lamborghinis from every corner of the globe, as they parade through some of the country's most beautiful cities.
Lamborghini owners and dealers will take center stage in the most memorable gathering in the history of the company as they write another important chapter in the history of automotive events. Because of the strong bond that has always existed between the company and the Emilia-Romagna region, the countless events held all over the world to celebrate the anniversary - with the participation of thousands of owners, collectors and fans - will be strongly characterized by a spirit of solidarity and public awareness.
Lamborghini will fund the event directly, and will also channel 10% of the proceeds from various participation and sponsorship fees into a fund for rebuilding social and cultural centers in the earthquake-affected area of Emilia, conscious of the need to reach out to the region which helped create the legend.
