Polo Storico Lamborghini – Miuras in the spotlight – The work done by the Sant’Agata-based manufacturer’s restoration department is showcased by several Miuras at the show.
Preserve and promote Lamborghini’s heritage – that’s the raison d’être of the “Polo Storico” department. Its brief is extremely wide. In addition to partially or completely restoring its older models – everything from the 350 GT to the Diabolo – it sells spare parts and offers a certification and authentication service. It also promotes activities at shows and events, as well as actually organising events. As such, every year in September, the manufacturer holds the “Lamborghini & Design” elegance contest. Last year, 36 Lamborghinis took part in it. To ensure that as many vehicles are kept on the road as possible, the Polo Storico department has committed to a major spare parts reconstruction process. The number of parts it keeps is constantly growing. This ensures authenticity and guarantees that only original components are used.
The Miuras that the Polo Storico department is showing at Rétromobile have been restored by specialist engineers and mechanics in accordance with standard practice and to original specifications, in compliance with a strict validation process. Modern tools are used to ensure a high level of quality.
LAMBORGHINI POLO STORICO: PRESERVATION OF A GLORIOUS HERITAGE
Lamborghini Polo Storico is the center dedicated to classic Lamborghinis and the preservation of the historical heritage of the House of the Raging Bull. Opened in Spring 2015 at the Sant’Agata Bolognese headquarters, Polo Storico is now a benchmark for Lamborghini owners all around the world. Polo Storico’s activities are focused on four main pillars: Archive, Certification, Restoration and Original Spare Parts.
ARCHIVE AND CERTIFICATION
The Polo Storico Archive contains all the information relating to the models manufactured in Sant’Agata Bolognese in the past, from the first sketches to the production files and the original technical drawings. Under the supervision of the Comitato dei Saggi (Experts Committee), Polo Storico also offers an exclusive Certification of Authenticity service that verifies the originality of each individual component. This service is only possible because of the detailed information available in the Polo Storico Archive.
RESTORATION AND ORIGINAL SPARE PARTS
The Restoration of a Lamborghini is a complex endeavor that requires great skill, expertise and specialization. Lamborghini Polo Storico oversees the entire process, working in-house on the mechanics and collaborating with highly qualified and experienced specialists for the bodywork and interiors. Each step in the job is discussed with the customer and developed by Polo Storico experts.
Automobili Lamborghini is committed to also producing Original Spare Parts for classic cars, with components covering over 65% of the fleet, a number that continues to grow year after year for a wide range of models, from the 350 GT to the Diablo. Owners can order spare parts directly through any authorized Automobili Lamborghini dealer.
Polo Storico also organizes events where owners can gather in breathtaking locations to drive and show their beloved cars in total safety and freedom. 50th Anniversary Tours, Auto Shows, Concours d’Elegance, and Track Shakedowns are just a few of the many activities organized for the Lamborghini Polo Storico community.
