lambos-mwPINKHAM NOTCH, NH (Courtesy of Dan Houde) – The Automobii Lamborghini America made a visit to the Mt. Washington Auto Road on the Lamborghini Giro, an annual tour taken on some of the most scenic roads in America. Owners of twenty-four Lamborghini’s, a mix of mostly 610HP V10 Huracán’s and the 700HP V12 Aventador’s, enjoyed lunch at the base of the Mt. Washington Road and Great Glen Trails after enjoying a thrilling ride to the summit of the highest peak in the Northeast.

The Giro (meaning tour in Italian) offers top clients from Lamborghini a curated luxury experience with spirited driving along some of the most scenic routes across America coupled with the finest dining and relaxation. They are joined by like-minded Lamborghini enthusiasts and members from the Lamborghini executive team. Lamborghini owners come from all over North America and ship their personal cars to join the tour. This year’s excursion included a tour of Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts, with a stop at America’s first and oldest man-made attraction, the Mt. Washington Auto Road.

David Hill from Arlington, MA, owner of a black-on-black, 2010 Gallardo LP 560-4 Spyder joined the Giro tour for the third year with previous visits to Italy, France for the Grande Giro and Sonoma Valley. “I appreciate meeting and talking with owners from around the world, and visiting some absolutely stunning places.” mentioned Hill as he prepared to leave the Auto Road. “Participating in this tour of New England has been amazing and driving the Auto Road and actually being above the clouds was just awesome.”

The group, mostly from North America, had their cars shipped to Cape Elizabeth, Maine where the tour began. From the coast of Maine the Giro proceeded through back roads into New Hampshire via North Conway. After their mid-day stop at the Mt. Washington Auto Road, the group continued onto Stowe, Vermont and will wrap up their tour in Boston with a farewell party.

Scott Lieberman shipped his red Lamborghini Aventador to Boston and flew in from Tyler, Texas for the trip. “I have many ties to New England and I wasn’t about to miss this one.” Said Lieberman. “Watching the brightly-colored cars moving up the Auto Road from a distance actually reminded me of skittles moving along. It’s a day we’ll remember for a very long time.”

The Mt. Washington Auto Road has a long history of hosting car clubs over the years, from electric Teslas to Adventure Truck clubs and even outings such as “MINI’s On Top”, an annual gathering of as many as 250 MINI Coopers which meet at the base of the Auto Road for a BBQ and then head up to the summit for sunset gatherings.

First opened in 1861, the Mt. Washington Auto Road is America’s original and oldest man-made attraction. At nearly 8 miles long, it stretches to the summit of Mt. Washington at 6,288 feet, the highest peak in the Northeast.

The Mt. Washington Auto Road is open daily from 7:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., weather permitting. For the latest updates on Road conditions and the operating schedule, visit www.MtWashingtonAutoRoad.com or call (603) 446-3988.
