Revolution (Hong Kong) - - SPLIT SECONDS -

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.
