A Brief History of Lamborghini Tractors
Before founding the iconic sports car company, Ferruccio Lamborghini was a successful industrialist who made a fortune supplying Italian farmers with modern agricultural machinery. In fact, Lamborghini Trattori SpA was one of the largest agricultural equipment manufacturers in Italy by the mid-1950s. The 1R, built between 1961 and 1965, was the company’s best-selling model at the time.
