Epic Drives retraces the Aventador's roots to the ring where the supercar's namesake fighting bull fought its last fight.

It's no secret that Lamborghini founder Ferruccio Lamborghini held a certain fondness for bullfighting. The Italian automaker's logo depicts a fighting bull and many of the models built under the badge feature the names of famous bulls or breeds. Epic Drives recently explored the history of Lamborghini and its close ties with Spanish bullfighting, culminating with the christening of the latest supercar to roll off the company's line, the Aventador, named after a trophy-winning bull.

Join Frank Markus as he travels from Lamborghini's headquarters in Sant'Agata Bolognese through Europe's highest mountain pass to the infamous bull-ring where the Aventador's namesake met his end in 1993.
