At the end of 1947 Ferruccio Lamborghini decides to produce an economic yet powerful tractor dedicated to the peasants of the ‘Bassa’ with their small farms.
He purchases all kind of cheap surplus war equipment, improves the engine and the fuelling system and produces a very simple internal frame: the ‘Carioca’ tractor is born, introduced to the public on February 3rd,1948, the day dedicated to Saint Biagio, patron saint of Cento town.
The degree of success is evident by the many farmers that admire, evaluate, and buy the tractors.
Thus, he decides to expand production. In 1951 he has to move to a larger structure: Ferruccio buys a ten-thousand square meters field, once a racetrack area and the first real production company is born: ‘Trattori Lamborghini’.
Among the members of his team of the technical office, there was a young Corrado Martelli, who shares a funny episode with us, and makes us understand how Ferruccio was incredibly charismatic!
