Last weekend as were still recovering from the Frankfurt Motor Show, Lamborghini held a very special event of its own. Specifically, the Lamborghini Concours d’Elegance, which took place in Neuchatel, Switzerland. Our kind of party. The event played host to 50 Lamborghinis from all around the world. On display were several examples of some of Sant’Agata’s finest and most iconic models, including the Miura, Countach, Espada, Jalpa, 350, 400GT, LM 002, Diablo and even the extremely unique Marzal concept, first shown at the 1967 Geneva Motor Show.
The Veneno Roadster also made an appearance. Lamborghini said that the event was dedicated to Swiss-French architect Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, better known as Le Corbusier, considered by many to be one of the best of the 20th century. The first day consisted of a driving event that all registered Lamborghinis took part in, while the second day was the concours competition itself. A jury composed of design specialists and international judges inspected the cars that best represented the different eras in eleven categories. In the end, the "Best in Show" went to a 1971 Miura SV in verde senape (a mustard color), which belongs to a Japanese collector.
The Marzal was awarded a "Best of the Best" prize and Harry Metcalfe's red 1987 Countach QV received the "Long Distance Award," having made its way to the event all the way from the UK. Organized by Lamborghini Polo Storico, the in-house restoration division, this was just the first Lamborghini concours event. Hopefully there’ll be many more to come.
