As the rain drizzles down the grey window panes of DEVELOP3D Towers, it is in a dreamlike state that images of the 50th Anniversary Grand Tour of Lamborghini present themselves.
All car fans have a favourite Lamborghini – the curves of the Miura, the hard angles of the Countach, or the rampaging energy of the latest Aventador – and seeing them parade through the sun-kissed Italian countryside has transformed me into a quivering wreck. I want sunshine. I want Lamborghini.
Few car manufacturers have been so exotic in the way its cars are designed, with each generation transforming to new exuberant forms and boisterous performance.
All of the models, despite their excesses (size, stylings, colours and often garish appendages like rear wings, scissor doors, countless exhausts) appeal to car enthusiasts the world over.
If you’re lucky enough to be heading to Italy, the parade of 350 sports cars leave Milan today and pass through the Italy’s beautiful countryside on its dubiously policed roads for the next three days.
