Often arguments and jibes lead to catastrophic results. But the story of Lamborghini begs to differ. The leading car manufacturer, Lamborghini, holds a dramatic and inspiring history. Here is a glance of an episode!
Turning heads to 180 degrees on sight of a Lamborghini is not uncommon. Why should it be? The fetching, tantalizing beauty of the cars leave you stunned and yearning. Owning a Lamborghini is no less than a life’s mission for car-freaks! But has it ever crossed your mind how the masterpiece came into existence? Here is how the idea spawned!
The owner of Lamborghini, Ferruccio Lamborghini ran a very successful business. Lamborghini Trattori S.p.A. produced tractors from surplus military hardware. Ferruccio Lamborghini served the Air Force Mechanic cops and was well versed with the subject.
As a car enthusiast and a successful entrepreneur, Lamborghini owned many sports cars including Ferrari 250 GT. Ferruccio Lamborghini began having problems with the clutch of the Ferrari which frustrated him so much that he decided to meet the owner of Ferrari and get the problem resolved. Now the encounter turned out to be really dramatic. In response to the complaint made by Lamborghini, Enzo Ferrari, owner of Ferrari, jeered and advised Ferruccio to look after his tractors instead. His words, “the problem is not with the car but with driver”, were not something a mechanical genius and Italian would take. Considering it as an insult, Lamborghini walked away. The heated encounter with Ferrari provoked Lamborghini to build his own car. Investing from his existing business, Lamborghini founded an auto factory in Sant’ Agata.
An unacceptable remark from Ferrari resulted in an opulent and powerful Lamborghini 350GT. The car was designed to reach 150 mph on the Autostrada del Sole, the famous Italian motorway which connects Milan with Naples.
