15 things we didn’t know about Lamborghini

if you haven’t been living under a rock for the last 50 years, you have probably heard of it, but I bet that there are some things you didn’t know about Lamborghini!
there is no doubt that this top brand makes some of the best sport cars in the world, & if you own one you are definitely gonna turn some heads around.
I bet that at least once in your life you have heard the saying that “money doesn’t bring you happiness“, but let me just say to you, have you ever seen a sad person in a Lambo? 😀
& the best part behind the birth of the Lamborghini is definitely the motivation that started the project.

 

 

1. first Lamborghini ever made was a tractor

when WWII ended, Ferruccio Lamborghini got home & started building tractors from spear parts. people loved them, & his business idea was reworded.

2. Lamborghini was founded as a frustration towards Ferrari’s bad services

when Ferruccio Lamborghini first purchased a Ferrari, was very disappointed by their services. in the WWII he was always passionate by car engines, & he was well known for his mechanical improvisations. as a result of this incident and of course his talent, he put the bases of his today top brand, Lamborghini sport cars.

3. at the unveiling of the first Lamborghini the engine was missing

at the Turin Auto Show, the first Lamborghini sport car was not finished, so they improvised a little bit. they put a bunch of bricks where the engine supposed to be & kept the hood shut the entire show.

4. in the 1960s owning a Miura was a big thing

back then only celebrities like Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra & Rob Stewart was owning a car like this. actually Frank Sinatra once said: “You buy a Ferrari when you want to be somebody. You buy a Lamborghini when you are somebody.”

5. the Italian Police State have a Gallardo which can be used for organ transport

in may 2005 the Italian Police State started to chase criminals in a brand new Lamborghini Gallorado. the car is customized with high-tech police gadgets & it also includes a refrigerated box for organ transport.

6. Aventador design inspired by nature

there are lots of designs for planes, cars & other things that are inspired from nature, & in this case the inspiration came from those shiny green jagged-leg beetles that smell bad when you step on them.

7. Murcielago new version

there is a new version of Lamborghini Murcielago & its name is Murcielago SV which stands for Super-Veloce & it means super-fast. it took 130 people to hand-craft it, & it is entirely made from carbon fibre, except for the roof & the doors.

8. Lamborghini logo chose after an astrological sign

Ferruccio Lamborghini chose the logo after his astrological sign which is Taurus, that is why most of the cars are named after bulls (Miura, Gallardo, Diablo, Murcielago).

9. Countach is a swear word

when the head of the Bertone design house first saw the car he shouted “Countach” in a Piedmontese dialect, which is the term used to describe a beautiful woman in a vulgar way.

10. Lamborghini Veneno Roadster

this beast of a car is the most expensive sport car in the World, it coast $4.5 million, & only 9 were ever made. now imagine what is like to be one of the 9 owners! pretty cool, right? it is like owning Mona Lisa.

11. Lamborghini Aventador boat
there is no doubt that is very nice to have an Aventador for the road, but how about the water? if you can afford to pay $500.000 for an Aventador, you must know that if you want the boat version you have to pay $1.3 million.

12. Lamborghini driving school

the Lamborghini Winter Academy is probably the coolest driving school in the World, where you can master driving a 700-HP beast on the snow, in one of the most beautiful places in the World, the Alps.

13. the fastest Lamborghini

the fastest Lamborghini in the World is Muricelago R-GT, & it has an astonishing top speed of 370 km/h. if that is not impressive then I don‘t know what it is!

14. Lamborghini owned by Volkswagen AG

at first Lamborghini was an independent company but now it is owned by Volkswagen AG, after purchasing it in 1998.

15. real life Tony Stark

in the WWII, Ferruccio Lamborghini was isolated on the Rhodes island, & he managed to put together some real impressive machines only with spear parts, just like Tony Stark did in the movie, when he built a nuclear reactor in a cave.

 

so, who do you think did a better job, Ferruccio or Enzo?
