Dirgahayu Republik Indonesia ke-74! 🇲🇨 Happy independence day to our fellow indonesians!
Special for today, a red and white @lamborghini
Indonesia was in some way involved in the conception of the diablo and gallardo, although not directly.
Lamborghini was ever so struggling in it's early days, having changed ownership multiple times until @chrysler in 1994, sold it to a company called MegaTech which is managed by one Tommy Soeharto, who is the Indonesian's president son at that time.
During MegaTech's ownership, Lamborghini managed to sell 209 Lamborghini Diablos until surprisingly reaching break even point.
Sadly due to Indonesia's monetary crisis in 1998, they had to sell Lamborghini, and it was bought by @audi
at that time.
During this 1998, the concept "baby lambo" which eventually led to the production of the Gallardo was first conceived.
