Automobili Lamborghini

Founded by manufacturing tycoon Ferruccio Lamborghini in 1963, Automobili Lamborghini is a famous Italian automaker that is based in Sant’Agata Bolognese. Ferruccio Lamborghini was born in the Province of Ferrara, Northern Italy to grape farmer parents. He studied at the Fratelli Taddia Technical Institute, where he became more interested in farming machinery than farming itself. With his spectacular mechanical abilities, he slowly entered the business of constructing and building tractors, and he became so successful that he was able to open a gas heater factory. Due to his keen interest in equipment and manufacturing, he soon found himself collecting different kinds of cars, and this led to his pursuit to possess his own automobile manufacturing industry.

When Ferruccio Lamborghini first joined the automobile manufacturing industry, he aimed to produce high quality cars that could surpass and outshine leading automobile manufacturer Ferrari. Once, when he visited a ranch owned by Don Eduardo Miura, who was known for breeding Spanish fighting bulls. He got so inspired and impressed by the regal aura of the animals that he did not hesitate to adopt a furious bull as the symbol and emblem for the auto company that he planned to open soon.

He established the company in 1963. The first car models Automobili Lamborghini manufactured were the 350GT and 400GT. In 1966, Lamborghini’s company released the Miura Sports Coupé, and this was followed by the Espada GT in 1968, which sold more than 1,200 units. Unfortunately, as the company was experiencing rapid growth and development, it was hard hit by bankruptcy in the 1970s. Sales dropped drastically due to the oil crisis in 1973, and Automobili Lamborghini was sold to different automakers, including the American company Chrysler and a few Indonesian companies. After the company was sold, it did not achieve the kind of success that its owners had expected, so in 1998, it was sold again to AUDI AG, a German automotive corporation that also produces the Volkswagen AG. Under the German management, sales began to increase again, and there was more stability in terms of productivity, which had not been seen in many years. In 1998, it was estimated that Automobili Lamborghini had total revenue of 73 billion pounds as well as 327 employees.

In 2003, Lamborghini released the V10-equipped Gallardo, and this was followed in 2008 by the supercar Reventón, a limited edition car that is the most expensive and powerful Lamborghini ever sold. The most recently released Lamborghini cars are the 2009 Murciélago LP 670-4 SV and the 2009 Reventón Roadster. The ex-speed records of Lamborghini include the Lamborghini Lambo’s record of 219 mph and the more recent Lamborghini Reventon’s record of 222 mph.

Most of the cars produced by Lamborghini were designed to be a road car with racing lineage, unlike other sports car manufacturers such as Ferrari, which focused more on speed, endurance, and technical superiority. Lamborghini designs cars that can be driven on the road by sports car enthusiasts as well as win on the race track. It is well-known for its smooth interesting designs, and its cars have been a great representation of high-quality, superior performance, and status.
