DO you want to go for a tour of the Lamborghini factory in Italy, but can’t quite afford the plane ticket?
Never fear, for Google Maps is here!
Thanks to the all-seeing eye that is Google, you can now go inside the Lamborghini factory – and more importantly, the collection of cars at its entrance.
The forecourt holds a group of cars which represent Lamborghinis lineage, stretching back to 1963.
It includes everything from Formula One and marine engines to retro classics and modern supercars.
Google Maps allows you to be your own tour guide, virtually walking around the collection from every angle.
If you get bored with the cars inside the entrance, head outside and revel in the beautiful countryside which surrounds the Sant’Agata Bolognese factory.
In your exploration, you can also venture inside a couple of cars, including a Lamborghini Murcielago SV, and the oddball LM002 SUV.
Lamborghini isn’t the only brand to get in on the Google Maps train, with Mazda allowing you to explore its Hiroshima museum.
Here you can explore the history of the Japanese manufacturer through meticulously maintained vehicles.
Mazda’s museum also houses a number of concept cars, and test engines, letting you get up close with some of the most interesting cars to never make production.
It’s nice of these manufactures to share these cars and areas with the world through Google, instead of simply throwing a tarp over them and keeping them tucked away in a secret warehouse outside of public view.
Chrysler upped the ante last year, with a virtual tour of the Chrylser 200 factory in a partnership with Google.
Here, you can follow the 200 along the production line, and experience a number of 360 degree videos to really get a feel for what the inside of a car factory feels like.
