For the 2017 edition of Italia a Zandvoort they spread the event over two days, June 24 and June 25, sadly this time the weather didn't really help out, usually we have lots of sunshine this time of year, but now the clouds were grey and the occasional rain probably kept a few Italian beauties in their garage.
Despite that, the number of Lamborghinis that showed up was still impressive, and one of them really stood out of the crowd ... a rear, Nero Nemesis finished Murcielago Super Veloce, number 025/350 with a small yellow SV script on the side that complemented the yellow brake calipers behind those amazing looking, lightweight wheels.
People really like the SV wheels, so one of the Murcielago at the event had her original wheels swapped for a set of Super Veloce wheels, together with the updated LP640 taillights and a custom exhaust, this Murcielago 6.2 looked really nice.
Other V12's at Zandvoort included a brand new looking, red Countach Quattrovalvole (fuel injected model), a really nice yellow Diablo, one of the rare, massive LM002 off-road Bulls and a bright metallic green Lamborghini Aventador with glossy black, optional Dione wheels.
We don't see the Jalpa that often anymore these days, but that red on at Zandvoort looked like it just left the factory gates, despite being almost 30 years old ... keep in mind the Jalpa can be considered as the grandfather to the Gallardo ... and that V10 model surely was present at Italia a Zandvoort too.
No less than two yellow Gallardo first series were shown, one on black wheels while the other came with a glossy black roof. The third one of these early Gallardo boasted a matte gray wrap with red details ... three Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera were present too, one being a rare white one while the two others were finished in the well-known Arancio Borealis, pearl metallic orange shade. One with the optional, tall rear wing in clear carbon fiber and the second one with the standard, low rear wing.
Possibly even more impressive was that Rosso Mars finished Lamborghini Gallardo Performante ... despite Lamborghini now using the Performante name on the lightweight, high-speed Huracan variant, in the days of the Gallardo the Performante was the Spyder version of the Superleggera. Combined with the carbon fiber parts, Rosso Mars really looks great on this car, add the red brake calipers and sport seats inside and this car is destined to become a collector's item in the future.
That black Gallardo at Zandvoort posed a bit of a puzzle ... she looks like a Gallardo Squadra Corse with the special 'Nuova Gallardo' front and rear bumpers on an LP570-4 Superleggera base, but the large rear wing and special engine cover is missing ... however, a very loud Akrapovic exhaust might compensate for that. The owner even confirmed he bought her with the tricolor stripes on the side, just like on the actual Lamborghini Gallardo Squadra Corse ... but in the end, we are looking at a very special Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera.
