The beginning of the birth of the Lamborghini luxury car was founded by a founder of the tractor company, Ferruccio Lamborghini. The tractor with the Lamborghini Trattori brand was made from raw materials for military production after World War II which was abundant at that time. After World War II, Lamborghini, which had become known as a skilled mechanic in the Italian Air Force, produced a tractor business whose raw material came from surplus military equipment. Unexpectedly, his business grew rapidly and expanded into the infrastructure sector, particularly heating and air conditioning equipment.
Ferruccio Lamborghini turned into a rich man and finally got into an expensive hobby by buying a Ferrari 250 GT. However, the car actually caused disappointment. Because, he was actually frustrated by clutch problems until he finally met Enzo Ferrari for advice. Not the answer he got, Enzo Ferrari just threw a comment that offended Ferrucio Lamborghini. “The problem is not with the car, but with the driver!” said Ferrari.
What’s worse, Ferrari also made a scathing remark by telling Lamborghini to just take care of the tractor. Humiliated, Lamborghini vowed to create a vehicle that would break Ferrari’s charm.
