Lamborghini St. Moritz 2010
In a noisy and colourful throng, 100-plus Lamborghinis gathered in Switzerland over the weekend of 18-20 June, welcoming visitors with a boisterous swarm of both classic models and the very latest cars from the House of the Raging Bull.
In a dynamic celebration of the marque, Lamborghini owners from around the world, along with Lamborghini dealerships and clubs, flocked to St. Moritz to enjoy a driving programme that included a route through the scenic Julierpass and Fluelapass to Davos.
Among the metal-bodied guests of honour was a Lamborghini Gallardo police car in its famous blue-and-white livery, provided by the Polizia di Stato or Italian State Police. It joined the multitude of cars and international guests from Italy, Germany, Austria, Luxembourg, France and the UK, as well as those from further away – such as India and Hong Kong.
Every current Lamborghini model was represented, including the most recently launched Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera that led the road tour in convoy out of St. Moritz. This ‘super light’ V10 Gallardo was first shown at the Geneva Salon earlier this year. At 70kg lighter than the already lean Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4, it claims a 0-62mph time of 3.4 seconds and a top speed of more than 200mph.
Among the classic models was a Lamborghini Miura SVJ, in stunning Rosso Granada, while a Lamborghini Jalpa from the 1980s also attracted admiring attention.
