Now you might not expect this, but every year at the National Oldtimer Festival in Zandvoort, the Netherlands there is a stand for the Lamborghini Club Nederland that shows a few classic Bulls from Sant'Agata, the fact the 2014 edition was held together with Super Car Sunday didn't change this fact so I drove up to this famous race track to capture the exotic cars presented to the public.
The by now famous red Lamborghini Countach Quattrovalvole was present again, this time with a color coded rear wing instead of the clear carbon fiber finished one we've seen earlier on this amazing looking fuel injected car. Next to it the successor to the Countach in the shape of the original Murciélago 6.2 model finished in bright orange metallic with a stunning two-tone leather interior combining black and orange leather with the stunning Q-Citura stitching pattern.
Naturally a series of Lamborghini Gallardo were on show too, going from the yellow car that could be rented for a stint on the track over a second yellow early model in pristine condition to a stunning black metallic LP560-4 edition rolling on the special cross spoke wheels.
The most impressive Gallardo on the stand just had to be that white Superleggera edition, one of only a handfull ever made, this Bianco shade really makes the clear carbon fiber parts found on the original Gallardo Superleggera stand out ever so nicely, combine this with the dark grey, almost black full Alcantara interior (the entire dashboard is covered in Alcantara too) and this V10 is a stunning beauty, especially with those carbon fiber door panels added into the mix!
As the 2014 National Oldtimer Festival was coupled to the Super Car Sunday celebration there were many other super exotic cars to be admired further down on the paddock of the Circuitpark Zandvoort, how about a bright yellow Pagani Zonda Roadster ... or a series of no less than four Koenigsegg Agera and even a Ferrari F50 in bright yellow instead of the usual red.
Now one of the more interesting Lamborghini in the Super Car paddock was kept covered up for an official unveil later on, sadly with the rain coming in during the afternoon I didn't get to capture an image of it without the cover ... underneath should have been a bright white Lamborghini Aventador LP720-4 Roadster ... but I never got to see it unfortunately.
Still some other amazing Bulls were on display, like a pristine looking Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary edition in the classic red paint and an intimidating matte black Aventador LP700-4 showing a stunning BiColore interior with black and red leather ... a very nice combination that probably could only be topped by the appearance of a bright Verde Ithaca Aventador complete with glossy black roof section.
A magnificent Aventador LP700-4 Roadster finished in Grigio Estoque came all the way from Belgium together with a silver metallic Gallardo Spyder, the latter showing a stupendously beautiful red leather interior. Another Gallardo Spyder, this time finished in orange metallic showed a German license plate while a similar Arancio shade was found on the impressive Murciélago LP670-4 Super Veloce parked on the paddock ... still an extreme car even if it was succeeded by the new Aventador.
Star of the event might well have been the arrival of the white Lamborghini Huracan LP610, the dealer demonstrator car for Pon in the Netherlands, we've seen this car on a pedestal during the Viva Italia event a few weeks earlier, but actually seeing it driving is another thing altogether ... the rear view with those amazing exhausts still captures my attention.
For car enthusiasts like ourselves the combination of National Oldtimer Festival and Super Car Sunday worked out perfectly ... some amazing classic cars and awesome exotics all together during one event ... sometimes a but crowded because so many cars showed up, but big fun nonetheless.
