Report: Lamborghini to celebrate 50 year anniversary with one-off model

Lamborghini has some really big plans for its upcoming 50th anniversary celebration next year. The Italian supercar maker, which was founded in 1963 by Ferruccio Lamborghini, will hold the “Grande Giro Lamborghini” in May and is asking owners worldwide to ship their cars to Milan. From there, the cars will run through Tuscany, Rome, Bologna and to the Lamborghini factory at Sant’Agata Bolognese.

Lambo’s CEO Stephan Winkelmann said the company will unveil “a special car that will celebrate” the anniversary. The model will be a one-off design. “It will not be a revival or retro.” Winkelmann said.

Lamborghini is coming off a great year with more global sales through Oct. than in all of 2011.

“We are really at full speed,” Winkelmann said.

So far, there is an 18-month waiting list for the Lamborghini Aventador Coupe and Roadster.
