'Lamborghini's presence at Pebble Beach will be the pinnacle of the brand's 50thanniversary celebrations in North America,' said Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. 'We're celebrating 100 years of innovation in half the time – what better way than by showing the first Lamborghini ever built alongside our latest racing prototype and road-going super sports car - the Veneno.'
The North American unveiling of its $4 Million, 750-horsepower Veneno will take place at The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering on Friday, August 16. The Veneno will then join the 350 GTV, which made its world debut at the Turin Motor Show in 1963, in an exclusive display at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance on Sunday, August 18. Winkelmann will serve as an honorary judge at the Pebble Beach event. Later this year, three Veneno production cars will be delivered to clients around the world.
Lamborghini will host a display and exclusive executive retrospective presentation on Friday, August 16 at Concorso Italiano. The public will then be able to see a selection of the cars in-person during a Concorso Italiano-hosted parade through downtown Monterey and historic Cannery Row on Saturday morning, August 17.
Anniversary celebrations have taken place throughout North America and Europe this year, including the 350-vehicle Lamborghini Grande Giro, the largest-ever Lamborghini driving event, which stormed Italy in May.
