Lamborghini's 50th birthday celebrated at Cholmondeley

Published 28 May 2013

Lamborghini is to celebrate its 50th anniversary at the 2013 Cholmondeley Pageant of Power (14-16 June), giving visitors the chance to experience classic and modern Lamborghinis with a display of classic vehicles, showing visitors the colourful evolution of the iconic Italian marque. A selection of supercars will also make a full bore attack of the 1.2-mile racing course.

Marking five decades of production for Lamborghini, there will be a display of some of the brand’s most famous models from its history, including a rare 1988 25th Anniversary Countach, a Diablo, the first production model from the marque to officially top 200 mph, and the Jalpa, one of only 410 ever manufactured by Lamborghini in the 1980s.

Members of the Lamborghini Owners’ Club will also be present at Cholmondeley to display their cherished cars to the attending public.

Lamborghini will also  showcase its latest models, including the all-new Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster, which has a 6.5-litre V12 engine producing 700bhp that powers the car from 0-to-60mph in less than 3.0 seconds.  This is the first time the car will be on public display in the UK.

Favoured to reclaim the lap record for Lamborghini on the Pageant’s tight and twisty circuit will be the Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera Edizione Tecnica, the very latest version of the brand’s lightweight model. Until 2012, a previous version of the Gallardo Superleggera held the lap record around Cholmondeley, completing the course in just 62.68 seconds.

Until 13 June, adult tickets start at just £24 for the Friday Preview Day, and £32 to see all the action on Saturday or Sunday. Under-16 tickets are currently available from just £5 for the Friday Preview Day and £7 for Saturday and Sunday tickets. More information at
