World rugby superstar Jonah Lomu, recently visited Lamborghini HQ at Sant’Agata Bolognese in central Italy, and managed to fold his 196cm/125 kg frame into the driver’s seat of the new Aventador LP 700-4.
Big Jonah was in Italy to promote the ‘Friends for Japan’ appeal, the proceeds of which will go towards rebuilding the areas hit by the tragic tsunami of March 11.
After checking out the Lamborghini assembly lines and museum, the imposing Kiwi rugby legend took a spin in the Gallardo Superleggera, exclaiming afterwards, “The feeling you get in a Lamborghini and the adrenaline rush at every bend are unbelievable!”.
Lomu debuted for the New Zealand All Blacks in 1994 and became the top try scorer in the 1999 World Cup. And ‘Friends for Japan’ appeal events in Italy will climax in a rugby match between Italy and Japan on August 13 in Cesena.
