Lamborghini Celebrates Its Movie Stars With Museum Exhibition

With a 47-year long experience in the international movie field, Lamborghini has just inaugurated a special exhibition at its Museum in Sant’Agata Bolognese.

Open daily from 9:30am to 7:00pm CET (EST), until October 31, it includes the most famous ‘bulls‘ that were featured on the silver screen.

One car that made history is the Miura. The star of the original ‘The Italian Job’ movie from 1969, which can be seen speeding in the opening sequence along the St. Bernard pass with actor Rossano Brazzi behind the wheel, the Miura holds a special place in the automaker’s sumptuous display.

The Countach is part of the exhibit, too, as a green example was used in ‘The Cannonball Run’, a 1981 movie directed by Hal Needham. In the opening scene, the Countach speeds between Connecticut and California.

Long before the Urus was on the table, the automaker had the LM002 to appeal to wealthy off-road enthusiasts. The high-riding vehicle starred in the ‘Fast&Furious 4’ film of 2009, and was driven off the beaten path by Vin Diesel. Thus, it is also included in the exhibition.

Sylvester Stallone is no stranger to Lambo cars either, as the Hollywood star used a Jalpa in ‘Rocky IV’ (1985). The brand remembers a memorable scene from the movie, in which Rocky Balboa talks to his son about boxing while giving the Jalpa a good polish.

‘The Dark Knight Rises’ (2012) had an Aventador driven by Bruce Wayne, while four years earlier, the same protagonist drove a Murcielago in ‘The Dark Knight’.

The Huracan holds its place in the movie industry, too, after appearing in Marvel’s ‘Doctor Strange’. and Other Lambos that appeared on the silver screen and can be seen at the museum are the Gallardo Super Trofeo (‘Italian Race’, 2016) and 350 GT (‘Bar Sport’, 2011).

Finally, the Italian automaker has prepped a cinema quiz, in which they’re challenging enthusiasts to guess the two films that featured the Sesto Elemento and the Centenario. So, do you know the answer to that question?

  • First of all I don’t want to criticize CS, I read the press release and it seems someone in Lamborghini PR department must hire proofreader. I know you guys just use the information in the press release.

    “as a green example was used in ‘The Cannonball Run’, a 1981 movie directed by Hal Needham.” Actually the example was Black LP400 S with US spec bumper, the green car in the exhibition is earlier LP400 Periscopa, which belongs to the Museum.

    “The high-riding vehicle starred in the ‘Fast&Furious 4’ film of 2009, and was driven off the beaten path by Vin Diesel.” No, Vin Diesel didn’t use or drive LM002 in the movie, instead the car is belong to the villain Arturo Braga and he used it in Mexico, although he himself didn’t drive it and the car did not participate in the movie climax car chase towards the border.

    I was wondering about the question mark for Centenario and Sesto Elemento, and I don’t know that it’s a challenge. Centenario of course was used in that God awful Transformer Last Knight and Sesto Elemento was used in Need for Speed movie as the villain Dino’s car. Which actually not an original Sesto Elemento but an accurate replica made out of RCR chassis and powered by LS engine.
