After Ferruccio Lamborghini died, his son Tonino managed to build and open the Centro Studi e Ricerche Ferruccio Lamborghini as a tribute to his father. The museum was inaugurated on May 13, 1995.
Tonino did encounter some problems with the Automobili Lamborghini SpA about using the Ferruccio Lamborghini name for something else than cars, but they finally allowed him to construct this center which was officially opened in 1995.
The Lamborghini Museum is located in Sant’Agata Bolognese, in that tiny triangle of the Pianura Padana between Bologna and Modena, fittingly defined as "the land of Motors". The museum holds just about everything Ferruccio achieved during his life with most of the cars on display being from Ferruccio’s own private museum. These include an early 400 GT, and an Islero, a P250 and P300 Urraco, as well as a Miura SV and an Espada which were Ferruccio’s own cars, and several tractors starting with the first one, built in 1947. The Jarama S driven by Ferruccio and a stunning white Countach QuattroValvole are also present.
In the centre of the museum you will even find a one of a kind Lamborghini Helicopter hung from the ceiling, one of two prototypes built by Lamborghini, which never reached production.
Other displays include a Lamborghini F1 engine and several other complete engines. The surrounding walls display hundreds of pictures showing Ferruccio during his life. All over the museum you can find books, brochures, scale models and assorted automobilia about Lamborghini.
