A bit like the Mondial de l’Automobile in Paris, the European Motor Show in Brussels is organized every two years, there is a show every year at the Brussels Expo, but the ‘big’ car show only happens once every two years, and 2016 is the year for the 94th iteration of the car show in Belgium.
This show is known as a ‘buyers event’, usually you can get some amazing deals when buying your car during the show, it will be delivered by your local dealership, but you can get a serious discount and free option packs when you sign the order form during the show itself … things might be a little different when you visit the Lamborghini Brussels stand, which also shows some amazing Bentleys by the way (same dealership in fact) … even the brand new Bentayga was on display.
I have to say I was hoping to see a Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 Superveloce in Brussels, but unfortunately the V12 flagship was not present this time, instead two Lamborghini Huracán were shown on the stand.
The bright yellow metallic over black leather Huracán was the new LP580-2 version, slightly lower horsepower compared to her LP610-4 sibling perhaps but with rear wheel drive only and a bit more aggressive styling at the front and rear, this Giallo V10 sure drew a lot of attention during the show, the optional, glossy black Mimas wheels looked great too by the way.
The second Bull on the Lamborghini Brussels stand was the bright orange, Arancio Borealis Huracán LP610-4 Spyder we’ve seen at the IAA in Frankfurt, with a color coded two-tone interior showing those impressive sport seats with carbon fiber shells … this V10 showed the black Giano wheels with polished ‘holes’, a very nice touch on this car.
Hall 1 at the Brussels Expo was the ‘dream car display’ where Lamborghini Brussels was located, but we also encountered an amazing looking, dark blue metallic Lamborghini Miura P400, the first production version of the Miura from the mid-Sixties … and she looked brand new. This Miura was in fact shown on a stand for the Italian Car Passion event we covered earlier, which has the impressive Rosso Veneno Roadster on display.
Other than that we only found one additional Lamborghini at the Brussels Motor Show, a sparkling red metallic Lamborghini Gallardo, from the front headlights this car looked like an LP560-4, but with her two-tone paintjob, red metallic and a black roof she looked like a Bicolore edition, even more so because she had the amazing looking Skorpius wheels installed too … however the Gallardo LP560-4 Bicolore never came in this special red metallic shade.
This V10 was tuned by Heinz Performance, so the power output was increased, and to keep things down to the road they also installed a nice carbon fiber DMC rear wing, together with the clear carbon fiber lower diffuser at the back the overall package did look really nice.
