“Auto Weekend” once again brought together cars of all brands, years of manufacture and purpose.
Svetlana Parfenova American, German, Japanese, Soviet, Italian, Swedish, French, British. Sports cars, tuning projects, classics – there was a place for all areas of automotive culture.
Svetlana Parfenova Three Lamborghini Murcielago supercars fit into one frame – out of 4099 produced. These are all-wheel drive cars with a naturally aspirated V12. On the left is a rare Lamborghini Murcielago SuperVeloce with a 670 hp engine.
Svetlana Parfenova Lamborghini Murcielago replaced on the market [Lamborghini Diablo](https://motor.ru/lab/lamborghini-diablo-v-rossii.htm). The photo shows a late copy of Diablo.
Svetlana Parfenova And this is the Gallardo Spyder. The first “junior” Lamborghini model appeared only in 2003, although [могла появиться почти на 30 лет раньше](https://motor.ru/stories/50-years-of-lamborghini-bravo.htm).
Svetlana Parfenova The exhibition featured two iconic Ferrari Testarossa supercars. The car’s design was developed by Pininfarina and was radically different from previous Ferrari models, and the most recognizable feature of the Testarossa’s appearance was the long side ribs.

Svetlana Parfenova Another rare Italian supercar – [De Tomaso Pantera](https://motor.ru/stories/superkaru-de-tomaso-pantera-50-let.htm). The car is equipped with a carburetor 5.8-liter Ford 351 Cleveland engine producing 330 hp. and 5-speed ZF manual transmission.
Svetlana Parfenova BMW Z8. When creating the appearance of this car, the designers were inspired by the BMW 507 roadster of the 1950s.

Svetlana Parfenova Long names and numerous special versions are both a feature of the Subaru Impreza and a reason for jokes. But this photo is truly a rare specimen.

The Auto Weekend festival was held in Moscow for the second time – like last year, on the Rowing Canal in Krylatskoye. The exposition was located on the island, and the “63rd Great Moscow Regatta” was in full swing along the canals around it, giving the festival an unexpected charm. However, the exhibited cars from private collections turned the “Car Weekend” from a fan gathering into a respectable show.
