The Lamborghini Turns 50 This Week

By the time Ferruccio Lamborghini’s companies were building farm tractors and air conditioners, the Italian engineer had amassed enough money to start his own car company. But he wasn’t interested in making the kind of city vehicles that were fashionable after World War II, such as the Fiat 500. His target was fellow countryman Enzo Ferrari, who had been building fast, sexy road cars since 1947 and whose cars Lamborghini once called “rubbish.” In 1963, Automobili Lamborghini produced its first concept, and its cars would soon be known worldwide for sensational speed and style.  This week, the Lamborghini turns 50 years old.  Congratulations!
