CLUB COR­NER Join the club New Zealand Lam­borgh­ini Reg­is­ter

New Zealand Classic Car - - Motor Sport Flashback -

The New Zealand Lam­borgh­ini Reg­is­ter was founded in 2010, and brought to­gether a small group of, pre­dom­i­nantly, early Lam­borgh­ini own­ers and their cars.

With so few Lam­borgh­i­nis in New Zealand all mod­els and their own­ers are wel­come, and the reg­is­ter cur­rently in­cludes the 350GT, 400GT, Miura, Es­pada, Jarama, Countach, Ur­raco, Di­ablo, Gal­lardo, and Aven­ta­dor. This is an ex­tremely good rep­re­sen­ta­tion of just about ev­ery Lam­borgh­ini model through­out his­tory, which just goes to show how much New Zealan­ders love their clas­sic Ital­ian thor­ough­breds.

The reg­is­ter has mem­bers through­out New Zealand and tries to ar­range sev­eral out­ings per year in the Auck­land re­gion, and one week­end away each year. As you can imag­ine, it does tend to cause a bit of a re­ac­tion when a group of them is spot­ted out and about around ru­ral New Zealand — not to men­tion boost­ing lo­cal economies along the way by vis­it­ing their petrol sta­tions! The mem­bers al­ways try to take the time to stop and chat with the lo­cals, and, on more than one oc­ca­sion, lucky chil­dren have been taken for a brief ride to get a taste of what th­ese cars are all about and why club mem­bers are so en­thu­si­as­tic about them.
