The 2nd edition of the “Lamborghini & Design” Concorso d’Eleganza crowns the 1964 350GT #0102 Best in Show

Lamborghini Concours 350GT 0102 Class Winner and Best in Show Sant’Agata Bolognese, 23 September 2019

Thirty-six Lamborghinis produced between 1964 and 1991, as well as contemporary models, took part in the second edition of the “Lamborghini & Design” Concorso d’Eleganza. The event, organized by Lamborghini Polo Storico, was held from September 19 to 21 between Venice and Trieste, paying tribute to the creative genius of the great Italian architect Gae Aulenti (1927-2012), born close to Trieste and internationally renowned for representing Italian design and architecture around the world.

On Friday, after starting off from Venice and covering around 200 kilometers, the cars arrived at Portopiccolo, near Trieste, where they were exhibited to the public in the three main seaside squares. On Saturday morning, the cars were judged by a select international jury: connoisseurs and enthusiasts of the Raging Bull brand. On Saturday afternoon, while the jury was deliberating ahead of the evening’s awards ceremony, the participants headed towards Trieste, where a huge crowd was waiting in Piazza Unità di Italia, literally invaded by the public, eager and happy to see an important part of Italian automotive history up close. The event continued on the streets of the historic Trieste-Opicina hill climb and, after entering Slovenia, it ended with the return to Portopiccolo after covering 62 kilometers of popular roads, perfect for providing Lamborghini owners with a pleasurable driving experience.

In the evening, Nina Artioli, Gae Aulenti’s granddaughter and curator of the architect’s archive, talked about some of the moments of Aulenti’s life, followed by the awards ceremony. The judges gave the title of Best in Show to the Lamborghini 350 GT, chassis #0102, owned by Swiss collector Albert Spiess, and winner of class A “Front Engine Dawn”. The car, restored with the utmost care and completely respecting the original features, is one of the pillars of Lamborghini’s history as it was the first car to be sold by the car manufacturer to a private customer. Today, this 350GT #0102, is the oldest existing Lamborghini production model.

Class A “Front Engine Dawn”: 1964 Lamborghini 350 GT (chassis #0102)
Class B “Rear Engine Revolution”: 1971 Lamborghini Miura P400 S (chassis #4863)
