Video: Rallying Through Italy in a Lamborghini Gallardo

Lamborghini marked its 50th anniversary with a rally across Italy, and in this week’s episode of The Downshift, we tag along with Motor Trend‘s Michael Shaffer as he drives a Gallardo with other new and classic Lamborghinis from around the world.

The rally celebrating Lamborghini’s 50th anniversary headed from Milan to the automaker’s factory in Sant’Agata Bolognese, and along with owners from around the world, we were invited to participate. While Shaffer drove a new Lamborghini Gallardo, owners from 48 countries brought old Lambos including the 350GT, Miura, Espada, and Countach, plus newer favorites such as the Diablo, Murciélago, and Aventador. Watch the video and you can even spot the ultra-rare Lamborghini Calà concept from the mid-’90s as well as the Rambo Lambo, the LM002 off-roader.

Shaffer’s journey takes him across Italy, where he sees Rome and the Leaning Tower of Pisa; all while being escorted by Italian police officers at ridiculous speeds. Check out the latest Downshift below and don’t miss our exclusive coverage right here: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, Day 5.
