There’s nothing worse than when the fifth of six Weber carburettors on your Lamborghini Miura is running a bit rich. Before that turns into an engine fire (please do not google ‘Miura on fire’, it’s heart-breaking) you need to put it on a ship back to Sant’Agata Bolognese and have the carbs tuned at Lambo’s relaunched restoration centre.

Curiously named polo storico (historic pole, literally – but think of it as the centrepoint of Lamborghini history), the reborn centre will serve as a location for Lamborghini historic archives, which includes available data for all Lambo models along with original technical schemes, body colours and other significant historic publications. A certification service for those seeking to purchase, or learn more, about a Lamborghini is also included.

Most significant is the heritage service. This arm can offer genuine spare parts, or where none are available, reproduce to original drawings or obtain through original suppliers. Furthermore, everything from a service to a full authentic restoration will be available at polo storico, adding genuine cachet for those seeking to enter their Lamborghini into myriad classic car events world-wide.

About The Author


From childhood stories of my Dad's Phase 2 XW GT-HO, I have always loved cars. That passion was nurtured via epic road trip stories read in magazines, undertaken in wonderfully evocative machinery. It was inspirational, and there was no longer a choice: I was going to make a career in motoring journalism. At Trailing Throttle, we want to recreate that feeling of behind-the-wheel immersion. We hope you enjoy the ride.
