Lamborghini Turns 50, Reflects on the Past with 

Parade of Bulls in New Video

Lamborghini 50 anniversary Aventador

For 50 years, Lamborghini’s headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese has been freeing some of the company’s most ferocious bulls into the wild. While it may be difficult for some enthusiasts to forget about certain classic Lamborghinis, the automaker has released a short video reminding us why we love the Italian exotics and teases what may be the next Gallardo.
All the great Lamborghinis you’d expect make an appearance, including the Miura, which was revolutionary for its time in 1966 with its transverse, mid-mounted V-12 chassis layout and bold design. It’s not surprising to see the remarkable Countach in the video either; about 2000 were built over the model’s 16-year production run.  The intimidating Diablo, along with the Aventador, also make cameos, as does the controversial Urus SUV concept.
What we’re most curious about, though, is the car at the end of the video, which could preview the upcoming third-generation model expected to debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. Check out the parade of bulls in the video below.
