Lamborghini Polo Storico supported the third edition of the "Concorso d'Eleganza Kyoto 2019" held on April 13th and 14th in Kyoto, Japan, in the midst of the picturesque cherry blossom season. The event, one of the most prominent in the panorama of Concours d'Elegance, took place in the gardens of historic Nijo Castle, built in 1603 as the residence of the first shogun of the Edo Period, Tokugawa Ieyasu. In 1994 Nijo Castle was designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
Amongst the 54 vehicles entered into the contest were 22 Lamborghinis, 20 of which were divided into separate classes of: Lamborghini 1963-1970, Lamborghini 1971-1985 and Lamborghini 1986-2000.
The “Lamborghini 1963-1970” class and the "Best Lamborghini" trophy were won by the gorgeous 1971 Miura SV, finished in Verde Miura.
The “Lamborghini 1971-1985” class and the "Most Desirable to Drive" trophy were won by the equally as beautiful 1975 Countach LP400.
The “Lamborghini 1986-2000” class was won by the 2000 Diablo GT in black with black interior, owned by a Japanese collector.
And finally, The "Best of Show" award of the “Concorso d’Eleganza Kyoto 2019” went to the Lamborghini 3500 GTZ by unanimous vote of the international jury. The 3500 GTZ, owned by an American collector, had to win its “Race and Prototypes” class before being eligible for “Best of Show”.
