Quote: On January 28th 2013 Lamborghini will celebrate its 50th Anniversary year and the launch of the new Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster with two events in Miami. These events kick-off a 10-day program where the Italian luxury brand will host 400 international media and dealers in South Beach. The Press Conference and Parade will take place at South Beach, Lummus Park, Ocean Drive 10th Street at 12 PM. A dramatic vehicle unveiling and press conference, at the presence of Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Lamborghini, and Jerry Libbin, Miami Beach Commissioner, across from Breakwater Hotel will start a spectacular 40-car parade down Collins Avenue.
The parade will be followed by a High-Speed Demonstration at Miami International Airport. 12 Aventador Roadsters will simultaneously drive through the runway, including 5 individual test runs at 170+ mph. This is the first time the Miami International Airport’s runway will be closed for an automotive brand and the first time a vehicle will surpass 180 mph on ground at Miami International Airport.

MIA I think wont have many issues with this happening, they have plenty of runways to compensate for the closure of its runway 09/27.
Interestingly they did it at 3pm as they say that it is a quiet time for MIA, but if i remember correctly, from my travels, 3-6pm is the start of quite a big flow of international travelers! Also with runway 09 is usually the runway for LH's A380 ops, so maybe they were done in time for its 415pm departure (although they could use 26L if required but a huge pain to get to!)
BUT! What a great sound those cars make! Maybe one day in my dreams........ I can afford one.......a model maybe....
