History of Lamborghini Tractors
The fate of the Lamborghini was to be that of an ordinary farmer. His parents were quite successful winemakers, and, naturally, they expected that their son would "follow in their footsteps." However, the young man was not interested in high grape yields and wine production, but in technology. In the mid-1930s, he entered the Faculty of Industrial Design at the University of Bologna.
The end of the university coincided with the beginning of the Second World War and Ferruccio is in the army. He served in the Central Transport Division of the Italian Air Force on the island of Rhodes. Service in the armed forces was more conducive to the development of the technical genius of the future car designer. He needed only a minimum of spare parts and a little time so that the seemingly irreparable motors were again “in service”.
Founding of Lamborghini Trattori
After the end of the war, the young Lamborghini did not have a desire to farm. Instead, he begins to do what he studied at the university - to design tractors in order to help his fellow countrymen and earn some money at the same time. He made his first tractor practically out of scrap. The demand turned out to be huge, and Lamborghini began to buy military equipment, machines, components and design small tractors. Three years later, a tractor factory was opened in Cento and Lamborghini Trattori was founded. However, this was only the beginning. The company was engaged in the development and production of tractors of its own design, on which for the first time the brand name of the bull appeared.
And if at first the factory capacity was only enough to produce one tractor per day, then by the mid-1950s the company was producing up to 400 machines per day. The advantages of Lamborghini Trattori tractors were excellent technical characteristics and reliability. Lamborghini participated in the design and testing of each new model. Amazing intuition, combined with technical knowledge, made it possible for his company to always be several steps ahead of the competition. These factors allowed the company to take a monopoly position in this market segment not only in Italy, but also in Europe.
