Ferruccio Lamborghini 105° Anniversary

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!

Thank you Corrado Martelli for the video and João Bramatti for the video editing.

105th Anniversary of Ferruccio Lamborghini

Today marks the 105th anniversary of the birth of Ferruccio Lamborghini, who was born on April 28, 1916, in Renazzo, in the province of Ferrara.
“A boy full of ingenuity, and with mechanics in his heart”, as his son Tonino Lamborghini tells us in the following video!
Tonino Lamborghini dedicated this Museum to his father so that his innovative and multifaceted spirit, his ability to think about the future, his charisma and his tenacity, would be able to inspire more generations of enthusiasts and not only.
To celebrate this anniversary, the Ferruccio Lamborghini Museum will share some special contents: videos created in collaboration with those who met Ferruccio and worked on some of his projects, and the experience of collectors who felt inspired by the figure of the founder of the Bull Brand.
You will also hear special anecdotes told directly by those who, together with Ferruccio, contributed to making “Lamborghini” a name famous all over the world.
From today and for the next six weeks we will publish a video to make you know even more closely the great genius of Ferruccio.

We would like to thank Corrado Martelli, Eng. Dallara Group, Enzo Moruzzi, Horacio Pagani, Simon Kidston, Corrado Lopresto and for the video editing João Bramatti.
