Audi Forum Features Lamborghini Prototype Exhibition
The “Real-life Dream Cars” exhibition unites cars from Lamborghini’s treasure-chest that have never been seen together.
“Many legendary designers have worked on transforming Lamborghini’s “dreams for men” into reality, for example Marcello Gandini, Nuccio Bertone, Walter de’Silva and Luc Donckerwolke. Ferruccio Lamborghini was firmly convinced that “Before anything can happen you need a dream!” His dream of the perfect car prevailed in the end, despite several setbacks on the way,” Audi says.
In the gallery below, which is provided by Teamspeed, you’ll get a chance to see rarities like the Lamborghini 400 GT “Monza” (1966), Lamborghini Miura S (1969), Lamborghini Countach LP400 (1974), Lamborghini P 132 (1986), Lamborghini Diablo Roadster (1992), Lamborghini Calà (1995), Lamborghini P 147 “Canto” (1997), Lamborghini P 147 “Acosta” (1997), Lamborghini Concept S (2005) and a Lamborghini Murcièlago “Versace” (2006).
The 400 GT “Monza” (1966) is a exotic front-engined Lambo’ which first saw the light of day in May 1966, combining the Italian marque's renouned 400GT chassis with a voluptuous, Ferrari-like coachwork that is hand-crafted by a local autofficina Neri & Bonacini.
Also on display is the 350 GTV design study, the first sports car to bear the “fighting bull” emblem, together with cars that went to production almost unchanged, like the Countach or the Murciélago. Other cars on display never made it past the project stage, but they are stunning examples of automotive sculpture nevertheless.
If you want to see the cars for yourself, you can do so at the Audi Forum until July 31st, 2011.
