On July 21, top automotive executives and VIPs gathered at The Icon on the Detroit waterfront to celebrate the induction into the Automotive Hall of Fame of a diverse group of automotive and mobility pioneers from around the globe, including the legendary Ferruccio Lamborghini.
Ferruccio Lamborghini was not only instrumental in establishing Automobili Lamborghini in 1963, but his unrelenting desire to always improve and innovate resulted in the creation of two of the brand’s most iconic models: the Miura and the Countach. Ferruccio’s approach was always daring, fuelled by the belief that the unexpected could be achieved by always striving to be better. His entrepreneurial and pioneering spirit is core to the brand’s DNA today.
Andrea Baldi, CEO of Automobili Lamborghini Americas, attended the ceremony to accept this honour on behalf of Lamborghini. A marble plaque etched with Ferruccio Lamborghini’s signature has been installed in the Hall of Honor at the Automotive Hall of Fame where visitors celebrate the men and women whose automotive innovations have changed the world and revolutionized our way of life.
