    I made the trip there last week and had a great experience, I highly recommend everyone who loves Lamborghini to include this in their trip plans when visiting the factory!

    Home Eng - Museo Ferruccio Lamborghini

    While there we were able to meet Tonino Lamborghini and his son Ferruccio Jr., both were very warm and fun to spend time with!

    Seeing the cars & tractors owned by the family (including Ferruccio's Miura SV) was very special. Another cool aspect to the new museum is the recreation of Ferruccio's office with all of his old office furniture and decorations!

    No unfortunately, il is not...

    I bet the original one would worth quite a big big extra compared to standard owned 250... the car from which everything started 55 year ago !!!

    Do you think its traceable ? what if Ferruccio made sure nobody will ever know what car he owned?

    This collection is a treasure trove for V8 enthusiasts.The four headlight Urraco prototype is here. Unlike the Miura prototype, the chassis was not made by Marchesi and differs from the production chassis. Here too is the first of two Jalpa Spider prototypes, at one time the silver Jalpa test car and previously to that the rame colorado Jalpa prototype and before that Silhouette 40058. Quite a metamorphosis over the years! And then there is the the yellow mule, used for Jalpa development [not Silhouette] which was also the P300 sent to the US for DOT homologation in 1977, fitted with Bravo wheels and arches. Here too is Tonino's luci del bosco P250. Well worth a visit for the V8 cars alone...!

    1. Traceable, difficult to investigate...

    2. It will be a pity if it is the case... I trust more the fact that one day it will show up !

    Don’t know if it is a repost but here is a nice video featuring some of the jewels of the museum.

    I really love the part when Ferruccio junior drives his grandfather’s Miura.
