“Lamborghini Design Legend” is hosted at Erarta, in the new wing of St. Petersburg’s Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art. The exhibition will be open until December 17th, and it tells the story behind the design of the House of Sant’Agata Bolognese from its beginnings to the present day, featuring a number of iconic models of the brand along with canvases created by one of the designers of Centro Stile Lamborghini.
The exhibition showcases five cars and six style models: from the aristocratic elegance of the 400GT with a 1965 body by Touring Superleggera, to the 1966 revolution in taste and technology represented by the Miura, the first masterpiece by Gandini with body by Carrozzeria Bertone, and up to today’s Lamborghini design with the Centenario, created by Centro Stile Lamborghini in 2016. The display also features engines, including the ten-time winner of the World Powerboat Championship in the Offshore category, as well as the company’s contemporary racing activity represented by a rare Diablo GT and a Gallardo Super Trofeo.
In the words of Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini: “We are truly pleased to have received this invitation from the Erarta Museum. An exhibition dedicated to our design confirms the extraordinary contemporary nature and revolutionary scope of Lamborghini’s stylistic language. We wish Erarta much success for this exhibition, reflecting the success our vehicles are enjoying in the world. We are glad that a noble and beautiful city such as St. Petersburg, imbued with an Italian flavor thanks to Palladio, can serve as the backdrop for it.”
