We all think of Lamborghinis as beautiful, sexy sports cars from the Miura and Countach and forward to current range of supercars like the Murcielago, Gallardo and Aventador but Lamborghini was founded in 1948 by Ferruccio Lamborghini as a Tractor manufacturing company in the Emilia-Romagna region of Northern Italy. After serving as a mechanic in the Regia Aeronautica during World War II, Lamborghini went into business building tractors out of leftover military hardware from the war effort. By the mid-1950s, Lamborghini’s tractor company, Lamborghini Trattori S.p.A., had become one of the largest agricultural equipment manufacturers in the country.
The tractor on offer here today is a 2241R. This distinctive tractor was purchased from a long standing Italian owner by the current vendor last year. The vendor then took on a meticulous restoration of the body and chassis and engine in 2014. This delightful tractor has Italian papers
This tractor would make a distinctive and welcome addition to any significant collection of classic agricultural machinery or indeed a unique addition to a Lamborghini collection.
