Happy 50th Birthday to Lamborghini

Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A

The history of ‘Lamborghini Automobili’ officially starts in 1963. Nevertheless, we must consider the far-off roots of this event, and they are the roots of Ferruccio Lamborghini. Born in 1916, this capable, impetuous, strong-willed Taurus was the leading character in the foundation of the company and the early phases of its extraordinary history.

By the time he decided to build a factory of luxury sports cars, Ferruccio was already a very wealthy man. In the period following World War II, he founded his tractor factory, which he launched with energy and determination, creating a major point of reference in this industry.

Other business followed, and he amassed his fortune at the perfect time, before his fiftieth birthday.

By the early Sixties, Lamborghini was a powerful and successful man who knew exactly what he wanted, but when he said he would build the best super sports car ever, many people thought he was mad.

Constructing that kind of car was viewed as an unexplainable extravagance, a hazardous leap in the dark, and something that would squander his fortune without ever turning a profit.

He started working on this project in late 1962, and by May 1963 he had already founded ‘Automobili Ferruccio Lamborghini’, buying a large plot of land in Sant’Agata Bolognese, about 25 kilometres from Bologna, to build a new large and ultramodern factory.

Because of the experience he had gained with his other companies, he was in a position to set up the best facilities for his purpose: a very functional structure that, at the time, was unrivalled in its field.

The enormous and well-lit central building was adjacent to the office building, so that the management could constantly monitor the production situation.

This was ideal for Lamborghini, who would often roll up his shirtsleeves and go to work on the cars personally when he saw something that wasn’t done just the way he wanted.

2013 marks the 50thanniversary of Lamborghini. The company’s history is one of challenges and uncontested records, set by the ambitious talent of its founder Ferruccio Lamborghini, who decided to create the world’s most beautiful – and powerful – super sports cars at Sant’Agata Bolognese in Italy’s Emilia Romagna region.

100 years of innovation in half the time: Lamborghini was born under the sign of the Bull, with a constant view to the future, a desire to achieve the impossible and to make innovative design and technology its signature.

Lamborghini Urus

Cars like the 350 GT, the Miura, the Countach, the LM 002 and today’s Gallardo and Aventador are the perfect embodiment of Lamborghini’s future vision. “I want to build the perfect car” was the declaration with which Ferruccio launched his ambitious project: an extreme, no-compromise, authentically Italian concept that has always distinguished Lamborghini as an automotive brand of excellence.

Today, Lamborghini is a company which has remained true to its origins yet has an international reach: present in 45 countries, it operates through a network of more than 120 dealers.

However, the heart of Lamborghini’s production remains at its home in Sant’Agata Bolognese, the same place where the factory’s foundation was laid in May, 1963.
