Visa Granted: Google Street View Gets You Inside Museo Lamborghini, Interiors
The Museo Lamborghini holds some of the exotic sports car maker's most storied models, but you won't have to travel to Sant'Agata, Italy, to view these gems. Google and Lamborghini teamed up to grant enthusiasts free access, twenty-four hours a day, so long as you can get online.We had fun poking around the museum, and most incredibly, you can actually get inside a few of the celebrated cars for closer inspection. With Google's rotational tools, you get unlimited perspectives. The first production Lamborghini 350 GT, the car that kicked off the bull brand, is on display. There are also several other storied Lamborghini nameplates, such as Diablo, Murcielago, Countach, 400 GT, and Miura S. The museum also houses one of the original engines of Ferruccio Lamborghini's Riva sport boat. The museum had recently been asked to sell the engine to a collector restoring Lamboghini's original boat, but the museum declined. The boat has since been restored, and is once again back in Italy after a few test runs in the waters off of Holland.Lamborghini says this it is the first Italian automaker to pair up with Google, and offer such an experience to its enthusiasts. Mazda has done something similar with its Hiroshima, Japan museum. You can fiddle around and virtually "tour" the Museo Lamborghini using the tool below.
