A Trip to the Lamborghini Museum in Italy
A Trip to the Lamborghini Museum in Italy
The name Lamborghini is familiar to all of us even if you’re not an automotive enthusiast. This famous car producer in Italy has been making some of the most luxurious sports cars. Even if you’re not a car nut, Lamborghini Museum is an addition to your Italy travel guide. So where is the Lamborghini factory? The company was established in 1963 outside Bologna, and the cars are still made there. The best thing about the Lamborghini Museum Italy which was opened in 2001 is the window overlooking the Lamborghini Factory floor to see the cars being manufactured. But according to the official site, there is an admission fee to overlook from the window. If you want to visit the museum, it is easy. Most of the websites say that you’ve to make the booking in advance. But when I visited the Lamborghini Museum, I didn’t have to pre-book anything.
The Lamborghini Museum has a fabulous collection of cars. The cars are on display. The cars are polished to a bright shine. The older cars show signs that they are aged. If you look closely, a few cars have small nicks. Those nicks are the sign that these cars had been adored in the best possible way. These cars were driven by people who appreciated their value. The first floor of Lamborghini Museum looks like a parking lot with a variety of Lamborghini’s from different decades lined up along the walls. On the second floor, there are race cars made by Lamborghini during 1980s to 1990s. Also, you’ll find the window to peek onto the Lamborghini Factory. This two-story museum is a bit of eye candy.
