lambo220130528MILAN, Italy: Hundreds of Lamborghinis powered through Milan earlier this month at the start of a tour of Italy to mark the 50th anniversary of the company, which started out making tractors.

The 350 Raging Bulls, which together count 190,000 horsepower, formed a four-kilometer-long convoy that began the tour from the Sforza Castle in Milan’s city center and which ended four days later at Lamborghini’s headquarters in Sant’Agata, near Bologna.

Drivers from 29 countries took part in the tour, which featured cars owned by the Lamborghini company, as well as by aficionados, organizers said. The biggest representation came from Britain, with 71 cars, followed by Germany, Italy and Switzerland with 30 Lamborghinis each. Indonesia, Japan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Singapore, South Korea, Tunisia and Ukraine were also among those represented.

“Lamborghini has been the dream and the symbol of Made in Italy for 50 years,” said company chief executive Stephan Winkelmann, adding that the tour “reflects the global dimension we have attained.”

Lamborghini started out in 1948 as Lamborghini Trattori, which has since been sold off, while the sports car division was founded in 1963. It now has 120 dealerships around the world and is part of the Volkswagen Group.
