Footnotes

  • This original and un-restored Lamborghini tractor has wowed crowds when it has been exhibited alongside the most beautiful supercars sharing the marque's famous 'raging bull' emblem, such as the legendary Miura and Countach. Preceding the foundation of Automobili Lamborghini SpA in 1963, this tractor represents the heritage of Ferruccio Lamborghini's automotive empire. After serving as a mechanic in the Regia Aeronautica during WW2, Lamborghini set up a small car and motorcycle repair shop near Modena before branching out into the manufacture of tractors using surplus military hardware. By the mid-1950s Lamborghini Trattori SpA had become one of the largest agricultural equipment manufacturers in Italy.

    The current vendor purchased this distinctive 2241R tractor from its long-term Italian owner in 2013. He has retained the original working condition of the tractor, which served faithfully from 1960 to 2010 in Northern Italy. Since acquisition, it has become a well-known 'trailer queen', frequenting Lamborghini Club UK shows and attracting as much attention as any of its more exotic siblings. It starts and runs every time but is not registered in the UK and has been used purely as an exhibition piece.

    This tractor would make a distinctive and welcome addition to any significant collection of classic agricultural machinery or indeed a unique addition to a Lamborghini collection. The vehicle comes with an instruction manual and a copy of an Italian agricultural magazine featuring it at Silverstone Classics in 2013.
