Lamborghini La Jolla

“Lamborghini La Jolla unveiled the Super SUV, Lamborghini Urus, at Music Box Little Italy. It was the ideal venue for an ultra-premium experience. The Urus was unveiled in the foyer shortly after a surround sound presentation of the driving capabilities and exhaust notes were roaring through the speakers. Music Box had three levels of entertainment, including an Urus Configurator designated in the VIP Room on the third level where clients virtually designed their bespoke Lamborghini Urus. Music Box provided an extraordinary experience parallel to our brand values.”
– Priscilla Soro, Lamborghini La Jolla
