The new Lamborghini LP 700-4 Aventador, with class-leading acceleration of 0-100kph in 2.9 seconds and a top speed of over 350kph has achieved another ‘first’ for any car manufacturer. The Aventador is displayed for the next two weeks in the capital’s sacred Campidoglio square.

A programme of events from 26 April to 8 May will run in Italy’s capital city as part of Lamborghini’s international launch of the new V12, and to entertain Romans and tourists during the Easter festivities.

Starting with a procession across the city on 26 April, the Aventador will head historic Lamborghini V12 models including the 350 GT, Miura, Countach, Diablo and Murciélago. Escorted by police, the parade sent off by Mayor Gianni Alemanno and Lamborghini President and CEO Stephan Winkelmann, will gather at 10.00am and start at 11.00am.

A temporary Lamborghini museum will be set up in the historic Bramante’s Cloister, free of charge to the public and open from 10.00am until 6.00pm. Lamborghini will also operate a temporary merchandise store in Scuderie Rispoli at via Fontanella Borghese 56/B for the two weeks.

Historic cars and Aventadors will be displayed for the whole period in areas like piazza di Spagna, via Veneto, Bramante's cloister and other central locations.
