LAMBORGHINI





LAMBORGHINI
Lamborghini was founded in 1963 by Ferrucio Lamborghini, a former army member who established their own company committed to building tractors. The tractor business developed as years passed as well as in 1970 another factory was founded to produce air conditioning units and heaters for buildings. The incredible success was celebrated in Sant'Agata Bolognese, Italy where the company established its headquarters.
But everything changed when he met Enzo Ferrari. It was the moment when his desire to build high-speed supercars with luxurious interiors revealed itself. Ferrucio complained to Enzo about a clutch problem that the Ferrari he owned had. Enzo told him that "the problem is not with the car but with the driver ..." and that he was asked to take care of his tractors and leave the issue for those who get sound advice.
Disappointed through the answer received, Ferrucio dismounted the transmission of his car and found out that his car used exactly the same transmission as his tractors. Because of this discovery, he asked some talented men who worked for Enzo Ferrari including Franco Scaglione, Giotto Bizzarini and Gian Paolo Dallara to provide him help. As a result, the team created the perfect competitor for that Ferrari cars, the Automobili Lamborghini.
