If you’ve ever looked at a Lamborghini and found yourself enamored and admiring the machine, just think about the situation that would have the cars never being born. I’m sure the companies like Ferrari would like to imagine that the Lamborghini never existed because the competition has to be something that drives them nuts but, the creation of the Lamborghini was in their very own hands, or at least the legend goes.
You see, back in the day, Lamborghini was nothing more than a commercial equipment company in Lamborghini Trattori. The owner of this company, Ferruccio Lamborghini just so happened to be infatuated with sports cars, particularly the Ferrari. As the story would continue, one day, he would head out with his own cash and purchase a Ferrari, only to find out that the car didn’t live up to his standards.
Instead of jumping right into his own automobile company, the legend would have it that he would go to Ferrari, suggesting that they improve a couple of things here and there to make it a better all-around machine. However, when his complaints fell on deaf ears, it was then that he would get to work, creating a car that would be a headache for corporate executives at Ferrari for the rest of eternity. The rest of the story pretty much writes itself as you see some of the most beautiful machines to be created hit the road sporting the Lamborghini branding.
This time, we get to take a look at one of the tractors that was originally the bread and butter of the Lamborghini company, the place that was always separate from the automobile division but is definitely where the cars that you see today got their start in a very indirect way. Today, the respective divisions are still in full swing and you can own a piece of their lineage in a 1960 Lamborghini 5C Cingolato for just$155,000.
With a story like this, it can really influence one to be on their best work at all times because otherwise, someone who sees things are working differently might just become your biggest competition.
