The Tonino Lamborghini museum,
After Ferruccio Lamborghini died, his son Tonino managed to build and open the
Centro Studi e Ricerche Ferruccio Lamborghini as a tribute to his father.
a tribute to a timeless work of art.
Tonino did encounter some problems with the Automobili Lamborghini SpA owners at first about using the
Ferruccio Lamborghini name for something else than cars, but the Marketing division finally allowed him to
construct this center which was officially opened to the public in 1995.
Located in Dosso, this private museum is only 25 Kms away from the Lamborghini factory and contains just about
everything Ferruccio achieved during his life. Most of the cars that were located in Ferruccio's own private museum
are now on display in this center, these include an early 400 GT and a stunning red Miura SV, which was Ferruccio's own car.
An Espada and an Islero are shown next to a P250 and P300 Urraco. The Jarama S driven by Ferruccio and a stunning
red Countach QuattroValvole are also present, on the surrounding walls hundreds of photos showing the late Ferruccio during his
life are presented.
All over the museum you can find books, brochures, scale models and assorted automobilia about Lamborghini,
in the centre of the museum a one of a kind Lamborghini Helicopter is hung from the ceiling, a prototype once built
by Lamborghini but never commercialised.
At this moment there are still cars being added to this relatively small, private owned museum, last year the very rare
Jalpa Spider was added, finished in a bright blue, also a very special Jarama SVR is now shown together with the actual
toy car the late Ferruccio once made for Tonino.
I can surely recommend a visit to this source of information whenever you find yourself in
the Sant'Agata area, combined with a visit to the factory of course, note however that this collection is not open to
the public all the time, you will need an appointment.
