The airport's first high-speed auto demonstration, organized Monday to celebrate the release of the 2013 Aventador LP 700-4 and the 50th anniversary of Lamborghini, featured five of the cars attempting to break the airport's 150 mph maximum takeoff speed, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Tuesday.

"The high-speed test runs exceeded 180 mph, so the cars beat the speed of any aircraft currently taking off from our runways," airport spokesman Greg Chin said.

Lamborghini President and chief executive officer Stephan Winkelmann said Miami was chosen as the location for the launch of the Aventador for a reason.

"Lamborghini wanted to introduce its newest and most anticipated vehicle in a market that is one of the top markets in the U.S.," Winkelmann said. "Additionally, Miami's position as a premiere luxury lifestyle destination makes it a perfect location for the launch of Lamborghini's newest and most extreme open-top vehicle."
