Judging a car at a Concours event can be arduous, and you must assume the drivetrain is in working order. Lamborghini has raised the bar with their latest event, as it involves a road trip between Venice and Trieste. Open to all Raging Bulls from 1964 to ’91, it is the Lamborghini & Design Concorso d’Eleganza by Polo Storico.
Their heritage department invited 36 cars to participate, along with judges from around the world. The theme for this year’s event was to pay homage to Italian architect Gae Aulenti, with the cars placed in front of her iconic designs. Judges gave awards for longest ownership, movie car, best preserved, best front-engine, and best mid-engine cars.
The boat class was limited to a single 1968 Riva with twin Miura V12 engines. It was built & owned by Mr. Lamborghini. The event concluded with a Best in Show trophy presented to a Swiss collector. His 1964 350 GT is chassis #102. This event should serve as a benchmark for other shows, so stay with us for all your Lamborghini news.
