The Lamborghini Polo Storico will be at the Rétromobile Paris 2022 from 15 to 20 March, the last time the Sant’Agata Bolognese company is showing its fuel-based cars. Lamborghini kickstarts a year of tributes and pays homage to the history of the V12 engine, with a display of two notable icons — the Countach LP 500 and Miura SV.

The flagship 12-cylinder engine is at the core of the brand’s legacy and its legendary cars, including the Aventador Ultimae. Lamborghini closes a chapter tastefully and will be moving into an electrified future starting from 2023 before the hybridisation process commences with the first hybrid production model launch.

Chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, Stephan Winkelmann, stated at the preview, “the heir to the Aventador will be presented with hybrid technology in the first phase of our Direzione Cor Tauri plan”. This maps out the brand’s path to 2030 and sets targets to reduce environmental impact “by taking a holistic and socially responsible approach.”

Making History

When founder Ferruccio Lamborghini set forth to create an impeccable sports car, the Lamborghini tradition was born. Owing to the beauty of design and power of the aspirated V12 engine, done by engineer and designer Giotto Bizzarrini, the luxury brand’s super sports cars have distinguished themselves since the first 350 GT model in 1963.

The Miura, produced in 1966 and eventually evolved into the SV in 1971, went beyond boundaries. The V12 was shifted to the center rear part of the car, which promised an improved weight distribution and made the standard production car model the fastest in the world when it launched. The record showed the engine reaching 370 CV of power with a 0-100km acceleration in 6.7 seconds and a top speed of 285 km/h.
