. While all three of these cars are rare, the Lamborghini might be the most special of the bunch. It is the first Lamborghini ever built and the pre-production car that was displayed at the 1963 Turin Motor Show to get orders for the original cars.

The Villa d’Este concours was originally held from 1929 to 1949. It was brought back in 1995 and has risen to prominence since then. It is open to the public on Saturday and Sunday.
