For better or worse, Tractors make up a significant bulk of Lamborghini's history. Founded in 1948 by the legendary Ferruccio Lamborghini, Lamborghini Trattori used discarded war materials to produce its first tractors. Military vehicle engines and differentials sourced from ARAR centres were used to build the first "Carioca" Tractors.
Within a few years, company production had risen from 1 unit a week to around 200 per year, and new Italian-built engines were replacing the war surplus units.
The enactment of the Fafani law of 1962 helped Lamborghini Trattori to take a quantum leap in terms of quality and scale. The law set aside a subsidy for farmers who bought Italian-built agricultural machinery and allowed Lamborghini Trattori to develop into a legitimate industrial affair.
The model on offer is a stunning 1959 Lamborghinetta, finished in Orange and Blue. The model was debuted in 1957 as a competitor to SAME's Sametto. The Lamborghinetta features a 22HP 2 cylinder Diesel engine and was marketed at a price of a million Lire. Our example is in perfect working order and has recently been restored to showroom condition!
