Lamborghini will mark its golden anniversary at Silverstone Classic this month with the UK’s biggest ever gathering of the Italian supercars, fronted by the stunning new Aventador LP700-4.

To mark the 50th birthday of the legendary Lamborghini, a special parade on the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit is being organised by the Lamborghini Club UK.

The show-stopping 100-car cavalcade will feature almost every model produced by the famous sports car manufacturer since the brand was originally founded by Ferruccio Lamborghini in 1963, as a direct rival to Ferrari.

Lynne Bull, membership secretary for the Lamborghini Club UK, said: “This is the first time the club has attempted to orchestrate something so monumentally exciting.”

Ferruccio Lamborghini started out by building tractors, but after earning his fortune, invested that wealth to pursue his supercar dream.

The Italian industrialist, also a lover of bullfighting, adopted the bull as his company emblem, and named many of his early creations after Spanish fighting bulls.

The parade starts at 6pm on Saturday 27th July, as part of the annual Silverstone Classic festival taking place that weekend.

But while motoring (and particularly, Italian supercar) enthusiasts will be itching to witness the extraordinary sight and sound of 100 Lamborghinis navigating the track, this is not the only large-scale parade taking place over the busy Classic weekend.

Also on Saturday 27th, Aston Martin will commemorate its centenary with a pageant of 100 cars, while one of Sunday’s highlights is an enormous procession of 911 Porsche 911s, as part of the festivities to honour 50 years of the model.
