Lamborghini gets its’ own Italian postage stamp

The Italian postal service has issued a commemorative stamp dedicated to the legendary Lamborghini sports car company this summer. The first stamps were sold in the car’s home town of Sant’Agata Bolognese. The 0.85€ stamp features the Lamborghini logo with its golden bull on a black shield in a shape which recalls the badge on the nose of carmaker’s classic Lamborghini Miura model, which was produced from 1966 to 1973. The issuing of the stamp is part of the initiative by the Italian postal service to celebrate Italy’s best-known products and achievements.

A special announcement ceremony was hosted by Lamborghini’s President and Chief Executive Stephan Winkelmann at Lamborghini’s factory in the presence of the Director of the Poste Italiane and other local dignitaries and the public. The stamp, as well as a limited number of ‘first day covers’ can be purchased from Italian post offices. The first day cover includes a booklet introducing the stamp and the legendary Lamborghini story, signed by Stephan Winkelmann. The Lamborghini stamp belongs to the ‘Made In Italy’ series with an anticipated production of around 3,500,000 stamps.
