Lamborghini - Sant' Agata Bolognese, Italy

With our time drawing to a close in Modena, our final car museum and factory visit was to Lamborghini.

When we walked in, we were greeted by three Aventadors. The red one was the newly released Aventador LP750-4 SV (Superveloce).

The SV gets some extra power, different wheels, more aggressive bumpers and a rear wing.

We started the visit with a tour of the factory, where they currently build the Aventador and Huracan. Unfortunately, there was a workers strike that day and the production line was not operating. It was still good to see the cars in various stages of assembly. Once again, no photography was permitted inside the factory.

Back in the museum, the ground floor is filled with classic Lamborghinis.

This seems out of place, but the LM002 is a Lamborghini.

One of the best looking, sleekest, well proportioned cars in my opinion is the Miura.

And who can go past the Diablo with its Nissan 300ZX (Z32) headlights?

Of all the classic Lambos, the Countach is probably the most unmistakeable.

There's also plenty of engine porn...

...and a place to take a load off while admiring everything.

Upstairs, we found the more modern models, starting with the insane all carbon Sesto Elemento.

And with that, our car journey drew to a close, but we have vowed to return to Europe one day.
