Museo Lamborghini 2016

The Museo Lamborghini is situated to the right of the main entrance of the factory in Sant’Agata Bolognese, which is a historic small town in the countryside, approximately mid way between Bologna and Modena. A bonus of its location right on the factory premises is that one will see cars being taken out on test, and maybe even spot the odd prototype. The factory is on the main SP 255, Via Modena, on the outskirts of the town, but within walking distance of the historic centre, and is still the site on which Ferruccio Lamborghini established the original factory in 1963.

International Bugatti Meeting Sardinia 2017

In the roaring twenties and the flamboyant years before WWII there were a lot of marques in the top market and international racing scene that did not make it into the times of mass production after the war. Some of them disappeared into the history books, others did leave such an impression that their name was revitalized some time later so when looking at today´s Bugatti Chiron as the status symbol of the Volkswagen group one is reminded at the glorious history of the cars from Molsheim.
