In the UN of supercar makers, Lamborghini isn’t just a member. It’s got a permanent seat on the Security Council. Over the past 50 years, Lamborghini has firmly established itself as one of the most desirable and respected brands in the automotive industry. Like its archrival, Ferrari, the supercar specialists from Sant’Agata emerged from unlikely beginnings and have survived through great financial upheaval.
In the process, Lamborghini has given the world some of the most insane and iconic cars in recent memory.
Here’s how Lamborghini became Lamborghini!
For most people, this is the vision that comes to mind when you mention the name “Lamborghini.” But that wasn’t always the case.
After World War II, Ferruccio Lamborghini found great success making farm equipment for rebuilding Europe. As a result, the wealthy entrepreneur acquired a fleet of the finest sports cars the continent had to offer.
So how did Lamborghini go from tractor-maker to supercar legend? It depends on who you ask.
