This past week in Kyoto, Japan, Lamborghini had quite a showing in conjunction with the third edition of the “Concorso d’Eleganza Kyoto 2019.” There were 54 vehicles that entered the competition, with 22 of them being Lamborghini’s in the gardens of the Nijo Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The three classes for Italian marque were Lamborghini 1963-1970, Lamborghini 1971-1985, and Lamborghini 1986-2000. Twenty of the cars fell into these three categories, while the last two competed in the Contemporary and the Race and Prototypes categories. “Best of Show” for the Concorso d’Eleganza Kyoto 2019 was the “Race and Prototype” Lamborghini 3500GTZ (chassis no. #0310). It was a unanimous decision among judges. This car had an extensive write-up on it years ago in the Lamborghini Club America magazine. Top honors in the ‘63-’70 group was the 1971 Miura SV (chassis no. #4838), a previous winner of “Best in Show” at the Concours d’Élégance Neuchâtel” in 2017. For the ‘71-85 class, the 1975 Countach LP400 (chassis no. #1120186) would take “Most Desirable to Drive.” A 2000 Diablo GT (chassis no. #ZA9DE21A0YLA12490) won the ‘86-2000 segment. At the conclusion of the Concorso, Lamborghini Club America had a three-day drive event that toured the region on which included the Seto Bridge towards the island of Awaji, and returned back to Kyoto. It appears that Lamborghini Polo Storico, essentially a heritage-focused arm of the company, will continue to prepare events around the globe annually. So keep your eyes peeled for more vintage-focused events.
