2013 seems to be the year of the anniversary.
Aston Martin is marking 100 and Lamborghini is marking 50. Anyone else? Speak now or forever hold your peace.
Though Lamborghini used to manufacture tractors, Ferruccio decided to build the ultimate cars after Ferrari royally pissed him off -- so folklore goes. Long story short, we're now confronted with what are undoubtedly the very definition of an exotic car.
Using rare motors and shaped like spaceships, Lamborghinis are not your standard car by any benchmark. As it ticks into its 50th year, we congratulate the marque on its accomplishments.
To commemorate this occasion, Lamborghini released a clip on New Year's Eve.
Some publications are saying the last couple of seconds depict a special or new model that will debut to 1) Mark the Italian manufacturer's anniversary, and 2) Replace the now old Gallardo.
From where I am sitting, I am not seeing that. Most likely Lambo will turn out some sort of special edition Gallardo -- as if it hasn't done THAT before -- to memorialize this critical milestone.
What say you, Spies?
