Ferruccio Lamborghini, an Italian manufacturing businessman, founded Automobili Ferruccio Lamborghini S.p.A back in 1963 to compete with other successful businesses, including Ferrari. He started off by manufacturing tractors for the first couple of years. However, he drove a Ferrari for the first time and became frustrated with a nagging clutch problem on the car…this annoyed him so much that he started manufacturing Supercars instead of tractors!
The world of bullfighting is a key concept for Lamborghini. In 1962, Ferruccio visited a farm in Seville which specialised in breeding fighter bulls. As Lamborghini was a Taurus, he was so impressed by the majestic animal, he decided to use one as his emblem for the business he was about to create. This is a very iconic logo!
The company was once independent, but is now part owned by Volkswagen AG together with Audi.
Lamborghini also provides two versions of the Gallardo to the Italian state police. They are also often used to deliver organs to patients awaiting transplants
All of the Supercars on our fleet are iconic in their own special ways, the perfect gift for any Italian car lover!
