Early morning car porn? Early morning car porn. On a recent trip to Italy I made sure to organize a day which included a stop in Sant’Agata Bolognese to visit the Lamborghini museum and Maranello to see the Ferrari museum. Due to some navigational hiccups we arrived at our first stop, Lamborghini, after lunch instead of before. If I had more time I would have liked to see the Enzo Ferrari Museum in Modena or Ducati’s museum in Bologna (all situated relatively close to each other).

Oh well. Made the best of the available time anyway. After leaving Modena I opted to avoid the Autostradale (highway) and found amazing driving roads through the mountains full of epic scenery and hairpins. My Opel Adam rental car was, well, pretty gutless but nevertheless handled well on the tight Italian roads.

You probably may have seen some of these images before as I’m sure the museums have been documented well. Pictures were taken with my phone so some are sort of crappy. Here are some of my favourite pics and the full album exists here:

Urus. Notice the camera which replaces the side mirror. And yes, the car is quite ugly in person.

Unfortunately these were just models and had fake parts such as cardboard brakes.
