Lamborghini Museum

Lamborghini has opened a new museum at its Sant'Agata headquarters, coinciding with the beginning of the 50th Anniversary tour for its iconic Miura.

The event was one of the first public appearances for Lamborghini's new CEO, former Ferrari F1 team boss Stefano Domenicali, who said: "The new [museum] now provides a richer experience of the world of Lamborghini where our history, engines, design and technology come together."
