Lamborghini at the Salon Privé and Hampton Court elegance contests – –

Lamborghini welcomed customers and visitors to two major British Concours d’Elegance in early September 2022: the annual Salon Privé event at Blenheim Palace and the Concours d’Elegance at Hampton Court Palace.

The Lamborghini Huracán Tecnica, announced earlier this year, was displayed on the Lamborghini stand and paraded at Blenheim Palace from August 31 to September 4, 2022. The perfect balance between everyday lifestyle and circuit driving pleasure , the Huracán Tecnica with an Arancio Xanto Orange tint was displayed alongside its track-oriented sibling, the Huracán STO in Grigio Lynx Grey.

The VIPs invited to the Salon Privé also paid tribute to the Aventador Ultimae on display: it is the last naturally aspirated Lamborghini V12 before the introduction of the successor to the Aventador and other new hybrid models from 2023.

Lamborghini’s guest artist, Paul Oz, has created a special painting of the Lamborghini logo for the fascination of guests. Working in thick oils on carbon fiber, the modern artist specializing in automotive and motorsport art and sculpture produced the vibrant piece, which has already been sold to a Lamborghini owner.

On the lawns of the Salon Privé, a specially curated Platinum Collection of cars from the past 70 years in honor of the Queen’s Jubilee, featured three exceptional Lamborghini models. A 2010 Lamborghini Reventón roadster took its place in the 16-car display, one of only three right-hand drive units produced out of the 15 existing roadsters worldwide. Lamborghini announced the open-top version in 2009, following the first reveal of the 20-unit Reventón coupé in 2007, which was based on the Lamborghini Murciélago chassis and V12 powertrain but with a new exterior design inspired by fighter jets .

Accompanying the Reventón was a 1973 Miura P400 SVJ: chassis #4860 was the fourth and last Miura SV ‘Jota’ to be officially modified by Lamborghini, for Ferruccio Lamborghini’s German friend and racing driver Hubert Hahne, who personally oversaw the construction of his car with unique details including a larger fuel tank and stiffer suspension. Following a restoration led by Lamborghini Polo Storico and a rigorous research and certification process, it received a certificate of historical authenticity from Lamborghini, with the « Hahne Jota » honored in 2020 during theexhibition by Lamborghini Polo Storico at Rétromobile.

A 30th Anniversary Diablo SE, vehicle number 64 of the 150 models produced, was originally delivered to a customer in Austria in 1996, with the titanium-coloured Lamborghini subsequently acquired by a British owner.

In London, visitors to the Hampton Court Palace Concours d’Elegance from September 2-4, 2022 saw crowds gather around the Huracán STO displayed in Arancio Xanto orange. Lamborghini owners parked their current Lamborghini models in a dedicated space, enjoying garden party celebrations while admiring a 1971 Miura SV and a 1976 Countach LP400 Periscopio in the historic concours exhibits.
