Automobili Lamborghini celebrated in Japan with Lamborghini Day, commemorating the centenary of founder Ferruccio Lamborghini’s birth and the 50th anniversary of the iconic Lamborghini Miura, at Meiji Memorial Picture Gallery in Tokyo, Japan. In addition, the Lamborghini Centenario, with a monocoque chassis and body in full carbon fibre, was presented for the first time in the Asian region.
An inaugural Lamborghini Day Concours d’Elegance Tokyo 2016, also took place, with 36 historic Lambo models displayed in a competitive exhibition, including icons such as Miura, Countach, Diablo and many classic Lamborghini cars.
Several awards were given out – three were divided in classes for Miura, Countach and Diablo, another two were an audience award and one award was for the most authentic classic Lamborghini. Furthermore, the best car of the Miura 50th anniversary year was awarded.
In addition, a parade for Lamborghini owners was held in Tokyo’s main urban district, following the success of a Lamborghini parade held last year. An exciting array of over 65 Lambos gathered to drive through the intersection of Omotesando and Shibuya in central Tokyo, with many passers-by stopping to admire the impressive sight of the Lamborghini procession.
