From the Collection of Dott Fabio Lamborghini
A rare and completely restored Tractor made by the famous sports car manufacturer from Sant’ Agata Bolognese. The vehicle is painted in the classic Gulf-livery of pale blue and orange. It sports an overhauled matching-numbers two cylinder Lamborghini diesel engine and a 4-speed reduction gearbox. The tractor, which is in splendid condition, is sold with EU papers. Although it would be a shame to expose this tractor to the harsh rigors of farm life or a vineyard, it would nevertheless make an interesting and nearly indispensable addition to any Lamborghini collection.
As the elder brother of the Miura, 400GT and LM002, this 1250 kilograms of high class Italian steel is a “must have” for any serious collector and enthusiast. Few people know that the starter motor is, in fact, the same reliable unit used in both, the Miura and the 1R. What remains without question though is the fact that without the famous Lamborghini tractors there wouldn’t be any Lamborghini supercars.
Being this one rare Model, in such fantastic condition, the 1R on sale must be one of the best remaining in the world.The tractor has a Italian registration and documents. All taxes and duties for the EU have been paid. The presentation of the tractor will be done by none other than Dott. Fabio Lamborghini himself, arriving from Italy especially for this event. He will also take the opportunity to sign the 1R for the new owner. In 1965 the list price for 1R was 1,1 Mio Lira and the last example sold at auction in the USA (in unrestored condition!) fetched a remarkable 59,000 US Dollars (*50.000€)
