Video: Lamborghini Disassembles Entire Aventador To Bring It Indoors

Last month, Lamborghini was working to display its all-new Aventador LP700-4 for an event celebrating the 150th anniversary of the unification of Italy. For its part, Lamborghini planned to show its latest flagship in Rome's Chiostro del Bramante museum. But they ran into a problem: the historic building wasn't exactly built with the idea of accommodating supercars through its doors. The Aventador wouldn't fit.

You don't get to be a world-class automotive icon by quitting, so the Lamborghini team tore the Aventador apart piece by piece, brought those pieces inside, and then reassembled it into the grand supercar that it is. Problem solved.

The event already ran its course from April 26 to May 8, but the video was recently uncovered and provides an interesting look behind the scenes. While you can see track footage and promo videos pretty much every day, it's not every day you get to see a $400,000 coupe stripped to its components and reconstructed.

Besides being an interesting look at the process of bringing a Lamborghini through way-too-narrow doors, the video gets us up close to some of the key components of the supercar, like its massive 6.5-liter V12. It's also set to the theme from Mission Impossible, a theme that enhances any video it appears on.

There's no counterpart video showing the Lamborghini getting out. If I were a staffer in that museum, I would have been leaning pretty hard on Lamborghini to donate the Aventador as a permanent exhibit and avoid itself the hassle of breaking it down again. Then, I'd break it down myself and take it to the nearest stretch of uncrowded country road.

But, I'm guessing that's not what actually happened.

Enough talk, just check out the video:
