Lamborghini Owners Meet at Yokohama

Nothing ignites the excitement of the automotive world like a gathering of exclusive supercars.  Such was the occasion on this bright sunny day where at least 50 Lamborghini owners brought their beloved raging bulls from across Japan to meet in Yokohama.

This event was co-hosted by Lamborghini Japan and Cornes, which was already mentioned in this blog during my test drive of the Aventador.

During this event they were offering exclusive test drives to some of the existing customers while the rest of crowd could enjoy seeing the 50 million yen supercar in action.
Few other new models were presented such as this new 2013 Gallardo LP550-2

But while dealers were busy trying to lure attention towards their products, all the crowd has gathered around the corner where the actual owners' meet was taking place.

And what a sight it was with all kinds of Lamborghinis from various generations, some customized such as this Aventador with beautiful polished 21 inch rims.  There simply is no better stance than this.

Entire history of Lamborghini was presented here with a very large number of Countach owners bringing their automotive icons to the event.

Nothing reminds us more about Lamborghini's exclusivity like the up-swinging doors. 

But just doors, loud engines and awesome form is not going to cut it, at least not to some Lamborghini owners, as the amount of custom work that has been done on various Lamborghini automobiles has not been seen on any other supercar.  My jaw dropped at Tokyo Auto Salon at the variety of Lamborghinis they have there, and what Liberty Works do in Nagoya is unrivaled.  This is where Japanese craftsmanship meets Italian passion.

It's hard to depict anything other than aesthetical upgrades in this event since most owners' cars were blocked off from general public, so I will leave it to my custom car show coverage to depict performance upgrades.

But aesthetics updates were anything but lacking, from the heavy red accent in the cabin

To  a race themed gun metallic/orange color pattern on the front spoiler.

Some cars however were completely insane, like this shiny bronze Murcielago.
Or this chrome coated Gallardo.
It was also sporting a logo for Frank Muller watches, which match the class of these cars.
This chrome coated Murcielago had the 50 year anniversary of Lamborghini logo.
Next to it was a stunningly beautiful matte black Gallardo. 
While on the other side, this flower arrangement themed Gallardo roadster, which I spotted in the past in central Tokyo.

It was an interesting experience seeing these heavily customized Lamborghinis during a normal day with license plates on them rather then at a crowded car show.

For some however, it may be questionable whether so much custom work is needed for Lamborghini, as a stock Aventador is no less exciting to look at than a chrome Gallardo.  But I guess you need to be a Lamborghini owner to understand the necessity to customize it, and since I am in no danger of becoming one, I will move on.

Move on to classic Lamborghinis that also showed in large numbers.

It's amazing how cleanly all of them are kept.  Not even a sign of aging or wear and tear on beautiful white leather in this 25th Anniversary Countach. 

Not far from it was a legendary Miura brought to the event by hypercar dealer Bingo Sports

Another beautiful white Countach was nearby with custom rims.
Next to it was heavily modified Diablo, with wide bodykit and modified headlights.  Hopefully I will see it again at a car show in the future to find out what's hiding underneath.
This rare Lamborghini Jalpa was also featured among the classics.  First time I've seen one in Japan, but unsurprisingly so as the "budget: Lamborghini of 1981 sold only 410 units worldwide in its 8 year span.

Overall, a very interesting turnout for the classic Lamborghinis.
So the question may be on everyone's mind: who owns these beautiful Lamborghinis?
Well, despite what the famous video may suggest,
It is people who work hard, doing a good deed for society, and claim the ultimate reward

Is there any better reward than a supercar that has exclusivity written all over it? To some, at least 50 people today, the answer is "no".

The turnout of the event was great.  Lamborghini owners take pride of their of their ownership and it was shown here in style.

Hopefully, the dealers got plenty of attention as well so we would get to see more of these on the streets.
