This is how you celebrate a milestone.
Lamborghini is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, and there's no better way to do so than assembling a record-breaking amount of raging bulls in the same place.
An incredible 382 examples, ranging from classic Miuras to the modern-day Countach, descended upon Silverstone Circuit for Lamborghini Day. This gathering of Italy's finest is the biggest-ever assembly of Lamborghini cars on a track at one time.
The celebration commenced at 11 Lamborghini dealerships across the UK, with the near-400 supercars heading to Silverstone. It was an immense celebration, enough to warrant the attendance of CEO Stephan Winkelmann and Chief Technical Officer, Rouven Mohr.
Mohr, Winkelmann, and several other key Lamborghini figures signed a special piece of art designed to commemorate the anniversary, before setting off for a lap around the infamous Grand Prix circuit.
The fleet of 382 Italian beauties embarked on a parade lap, led by drivers from the Squadra Corse motorsport team. As you can see, it was a sight to behold, with Lamborghinis of all shapes, sizes, and colors striking a pose on the circuit. This isn't the first time Lamborghini has gone for a record-breaking attempt; the automaker previously set a record with 251 cars, at the Suzuka circuit in Japan.
But that's not all guests could look forward to. An array of classics, including the 400 GT, Diablo, and even the iconic LM 002 off-roader, were on display for all to see. Those who were swept up by the excitement of it all could even visit a pop-up Ad Personam lounge, which allows wealthy buyers to personalize Lamborghinis to their exact requirements.
Elsewhere, director of design Mitja Borkert hosted demonstrations of Lamborghini's design process. Various displays also gave attendees a glimpse into the company's sustainable future - let's not forget Sant'Agata Bolognese is working on its first electric vehicle.
Lamborghini's superb Huracan GT3 Evo racecar was also on display, along with Roger Dubuis timepieces, a long-time partner of the Lamborghini brand. This isn't the last 60th-anniversary celebration that the Italian marque has planned.
Later this month, the Giro tour will take place in Italy and conclude at the Piazza Maggiore in Bologna, on May 28.
150 vehicles are expected to participate, with fans of the brand treated to a Concours d'Elegance.
"The UK continues as one of our top markets worldwide with a loyal and growing Lamborghini client and fan base," said CEO Stephan Winkelmann. "Our celebrations for our 60th-anniversary event at Silverstone, the UK's most iconic race circuit, are a fitting tribute to both our brand, our owners, and the millions of people around the world who are passionately interested in Lamborghini and follow us through events and social media."
Lamborghini also took the opportunity to introduce the all-new Revuelto to the UK public. The Aventador successor was first revealed earlier this year and is a hugely important vehicle for the brand. Even though it retains the signature V12 engine, the Revuelto is the company's first electrified vehicle, thanks to three electric motors that work together with the mighty 12-cylinder.
This blend of old and new technologies makes for mighty power outputs: 1,001 horsepower, to be exact. As you would expect, performance is sprightly, with 0 to 62 dispatched in a mere 2.5 seconds. The top speed is pegged at more than 217 mph. "It not only marks Lamborghini's first electrified vehicle but also continues our super sports car DNA in terms of Lamborghini design, technology, performance, and dynamic emotions," continued Winkelmann.
