Some of the models on display
LAMBRETTA 225 Corsa 1969
Certainly the most performing Lambretta prototype in the world. It derives directly from the Lambretta which has won the most important trophies in Europe. Road version of the competition model, it reaches a maximum speed of 170 km/h.
LAMBRETTA 125 LI - 1958 A free interpretation inspired by Jane Mansfield’s Lambretta. The all-gold scooter made especially for the famous American actress to drive around Hollywood… in style!
LAMBRETTA 150 LD - 1957 The latest model of Lambretta production with the traditional and distinctive shaft drive transmission. It is the most advanced Lambretta among those with classic mechanics, before the evolution with chain transmission. It is also the first Lambretta to mount an aluminium fairing on the handlebar.
LAMBRETTA 125 D 1ª serie - 1952 The best known and most loved Lambretta of the 1950s. It embodies all its main features that made it a highly regarded avant-garde vehicle: simplicity, reliability and economy. The Lambretta wanted to be and was the motorised means of transport best suited for every budget.
LAMBRETTA 125 A 1ª serie - 1947 Extremely rare example of the first Lambretta built by the Innocenti factory in Milan in 1947. A technical jewel that has been able to win the sympathy of the whole scooter world.
