One day after the convoy left the French Capitol the second leg of this year’s Tour Auto led from yesterday’s finish Saint-Malo to the suburbs of Nantes.

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.

The Retro Classics 2017 ... even bigger than the older and internationally better known Techno Classica

Just three weeks after the sensational Retromobile Show in Paris the German car show scene starts into the 2017 season with the Retro Classics in Stuttgart.
