Anniversary bash for supercars

LEGENDARY Italian supercar marque Lamborghini is celebrating its 50th birthday at next month’s Silverstone Classic — the biggest ever gathering of its kind seen in the UK.

The original raging bull of the automotive world will be celebrated with a massive 100-car cavalcade around the Grand Prix circuit, led by the company’s latest amazing creation, the Aventador LP700-4, at 6pm on July 27.

The parade will feature almost every model produced by the famous sportscar manufacturer since originally founded by Ferruccio Lamborghini back in 1963 as a direct rival to Ferrari.

“As far as we know it will be the biggest gathering of Lamborghinis ever seen in the UK and probably anywhere in the world,” explained Lynne Bull, membership secretary of the Lamborghini Club UK.

“There will be Miuras, Espadas, LM002s, Countachs, Murcielagos, Diablos, Uraccos… basically the whole history will be represented aside from a couple of the very early originals.”  

The Silverstone Classic will also see a massive procession of Porsche 911s as part of the festivities to honour 50 years of the iconic German sports car.

Enthusiasts wanting to witness these dazzling parades must buy tickets in advance.

An adult ticket costs from £35 (plus fees).
