On 7 May 1967, shortly before the start of the Monte Carlo Formula 1 Grand Prix, His Serene Highness Rainier III, Prince of Monaco, completed the lap of honor on the track in a legendary car: the Lamborghini Marzal, with its glazed gullwing doors offering an almost unimpeded view of the interior and the silver leather upholstery.
Princess Grace sat in the passenger seat, next to Prince Rainier. Photos of the couple in the Marzal traveled all around the world, turning this unique car into a legend. Since then, the Marzal’s engines have remained silent, hidden away from curious eyes. It will go on show again next weekend (May 11-13) for the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique with the support of Lamborghini Polo Storico, celebrating its history by completing several laps on the same roads as in 1967.
This is a unique opportunity to see the Marzal after 51 years in the setting where it became famous. It will be kept company by a Lamborghini Espada, the 2+2 series car designed in 1968, inspired by the idea and lines of the Marzal and produced in Sant’Agata Bolognese until 1978.
