From the Dott. Fabio Lamborghini Collection
Details of Mr. Lamborghini’s tractor production are usually just a side note to the stories surrounding the 400 GT, Miura, Countach, etc. He was, in fact, a very successful industrialist and the tractors that bear his name are still in production today.
Lamborghini was founded in 1948 and was well-known for the production of not just tractors, but also of military and industrial engines. Lamborghini Trattori grew quickly, developing many specialized models and becoming one of the largest agricultural manufacturers in Italy. While separate from automotive operations, the tractor business has been steadily successful and still produces specialized equipment for orchards, vineyards and other specialist farms around the world.
This tractor has benefited from a dedicated owner who restored the tractor to its current impressive condition. When taking into consideration that this is made for a more rural purpose, it is indeed a well-engineered machine with plenty of power and reliability. The two- cylinder Diesel engine has plenty of torque to do active duty in the field, but would also be great fun to drive around the property. The belt-driven PTO is designed to run various pieces of farming equipment and is reported to be well-functioning, should one want to explore on his own.
This little Lamborghini, built in 1953, makes a fantastic appearance and is finished in the traditional Lamborghini Trattori red on the bodywork, with a grey finish on the chassis and wheel hubs. A cute and appropriate addition to any collection, this DL20 is a great way to remember the roots of Lamborghini before they became immortal with flamboyant supercar design and directly from the collection of Dott. Fabio Lamborghini.
The last documented sales of these models have been $110,000 in the USA and up to €70,000 in Europe. The tractor has German TUV documents. All taxes and duties for the EU have been paid.
