Lamborghini exhibits cars featured on Hollywood, international movies
Over the years, there have been a lot of movies with feature cars that will go on to be movie icons. To celebrate these movie star vehicles, Lamborghini has decided to create a special exhibit to honor their models which have graced the big screen. The exhibit is being held at the Lamborghini Museum in Sant’Agata Bolognese and takes inspiration from the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Lamborghini's movie screen history stretches as far back as 1969 with the most recent one appearing in 2016. An orange Miura P400 first graced the screen in the opening sequence of the original The Italian Job. A Lamborghini's most recent appearance on the silver screen would be the Grigio Lynx Huracan which was in the Marvel movie Doctor Strange, driven by Dr. Stephen Strange himself. Meanwhile over at DC, Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins and The Dark Knight Rises, shows Bruce Wayne driving a Murcielago LP640 and an Aventador, respectively.
While the museum does have a green Countach on display, it is meant to represent the black LP500S which was used in the 1981 hit film The Cannonball Run. Those who followed the Rocky Balboa franchise would also remember the matte black Jalpa used in Rocky IV.
Lamborghini's first SUV, the LM002, made an feature in the 2009 film Fast&Furious. Strangely, there is no mention of the orange Murcielago used in The Fate of the Furious.
The raging bull brand also made an appearance in local Italian films, to which Lamborghini credits as well. A red 350 GT was used in the film Bar Sport, while a Gallardo Super Trofeo appears in the film Veloce come il Vento (Italian Race).
Museum goers can also challenge themselves with a cinema quiz to figure out the two films in which the Lamborghini Centenario and the Sesto Elemento were protagonists.
Lamborghini's special Hollywood display begins today and runs until October 31, 2018.
