LAMBORGHINI’S FINEST DISPLAYED IN CAUSEWAY BAY
Lamborghini has opened its first pop-up museum in Asia, located at the new Soundwill Plaza Midtown II, in Causeway Bay. Over the coming weeks, Lamborghini will display three cars at any one time, from the marque’s first 50 years. The exhibit started with the 400GT 2+2, one of Ferrucio Lamborghini’s original development; the Countach, its flagship car from the 1980s; and the Reventón Roadster, one of its most extreme modern cars, which was made in a very limited series of 20 units only.
Many of these cars have been borrowed from local collectors, some of whom Albert Wong, director of Lamborghini Hong Kong, admitted needed quite some persuading before they agreed to display their prized possessions. The display will change about once per month; the first three cars mentioned above have now given the space to the cars that marked Lamborghini’s 30th, 40th, and 50th anniversary, which are, respectively, the Diablo SE, the Murciélago, and the Aventador LP720-4.
Wong indicated that we can look forward to seeing more unique cars in the upcoming weeks, such as Lamborghini’s LM002, the car that probably gave birth to the term “sports utility vehicle,” with the body of an all-terrain vehicle and the heart of a Countach, the 5.2L V12 engine. The museum will be in place until September this year, when Lamborghini is expected to launch their latest sportscar in Hong Kong, the Huracán.
