Lamborghini is an Italian manufacturer of premium sports cars that have been firmly holding the palm in this field for many years.
The owner of the company, Ferruccio Lamborghini, started his business with the production of tractors. According to a popular legend, once he approached the Ferrari manufacturer complaining about the limitations of the clutch in his recently purchased car, received advice from Ferrari not to interfere in what he did not understand. Then Ferruccio decided to fix the problem by himself. And when he succeed, he realized that he want to produce his own cars that would not have any flaws.
So in 1963, Lamborghini was founded, and a year later, the Lamborghini 350 GT serial car entered the market, it becomes the first major success of Lamborghini.
Ups and downs
The oil crisis of the 1970s almost knocked the company down, which at that time already earned worldwide fame. Falling demand for cars and disruptions in the supply of spare parts brought the giant to bankruptcy, but Lamborghini was saved by the Swiss brothers Mimrans, who purchased it out.
In 1987, the company was resold to Chrysler Corporation, in 1994 it was owned by the Megatech investment group, and in 1998 by Audi AG. Each time, the resale went to the benefit of Lamborghini and forced it to develop and prosper.
Lamborghini cars are decorated with a stylized symbol of a bull since Ferruccio's zodiac sign was Taurus.
Tractors Lamborghini is still in production, but they are handled by another manufacturer.
In 2001, the Lamborghini Museum was opened in the Italian commune of Sant'Agata Bolognese.
In the mid-1980s, Lamborghini produced a limited-production run of a 1,000 cc (61.0 cu in) sports motorcycle. UK weekly newspaper Motor Cycle News reported in 1994 – when featuring an example available through an Essex motorcycle retailer – that 24 examples were produced with a Lamborghini alloy frame having adjustable steering head angle, Kawasaki GPz1000RX engine/transmission unit, Ceriani front forks and Marvic wheels. The bodywork was plastic and fully integrated with front fairing merged into fuel tank and seat cover ending in a rear tail-fairing. The motorcycles were designed by Lamborghini stylists and produced by French business Boxer Bikes.
