Details of Mr. Lamborghini's tractor production are usually just a side note to the stories surrounding the 400 GT, Miura, Countach, etc. He was, in fact, a very successful industrialist and the tractors that bear his name are still in production today.
Lamborghini was founded in 1948 and were well-known for production of not just tractors, but also of military and industrial engines. Lamborghini Trattori grew quickly, developing many specialized models and becoming one of the largest agricultural manufacturers in Italy. While separate from automotive operations, the tractor business has been steadily successful and still produces specialized equipment for orchards, vineyards and other specialist farms around the world.
THE TRACTOR OFFERED
Due to the fact that Lamborghini never officially imported their tractors into the US, it is a very rare opportunity to find one of these charming agricultural cousins of the Miura and Countach models. This example has benefitted from a dedicated owner who restored the tractor to its current impressive condition. When taking into consideration that this is made for a more rural purpose, it is indeed a well-engineered machine with plenty of power and reliability. The two-cylinder Diesel engine has plenty of torque to do active duty in the field, but would also be great fun to drive around the property. The belt-driven PTO is designed to run various pieces of farming equipment and is reported to be well-functioning, should one want to explore on his own.
This Lamborghini Model 1R Tractor appears very correct and is finished in the traditional Lamborghini Trattori orange bodywork, with a light blue finish on the chassis and wheel hubs. This tractor is surely worthy displaying at any Italian car show. A useful and appropriate addition to any collection, this 1R is a great way to remember the roots of Lamborghini before they became immortal with flamboyant supercar design.
