•Un des 117 DLA 35 construits
•Restauré en 2016
•Une façon économique d'accéder à Lamborghini

Construit bien avant la création de Automobili Lamborghini SpA en 1963, ce tracteur DLA 35 fait partie du patrimoine industriel de Ferruccio Lamborghini. Après avoir servi comme mécanicien au sein de la Regia Aeronautica pendant la seconde guerre, Lamborghini ouvrit un atelier de réparation d'automobiles et de motocyclettes près de Modène, avant de se lancer dans la construction de tracteurs, à partir de surplus militaires. Au milieu des années 1950, Lamborghini Trattori SpA était devenu un des plus grands constructeurs de matériels agricoles en Italie, un état de fait qui explique probablement cette déclaration de Ferruccio Lamborghini : « Un tracteur par jour éloigne la misère ! ».

Le châssis numéro 3050, l'un des 117 DLA 35 construits, est équipé d'un trois cylindres Lamborghini de 2 200 cm3 de cylindrée développant une puissance relativement élevée de 36 ch. Restauré en 2016, il est peint dans la livrée orange et bleu conforme à l'origine et est équipé de pneus neufs. Ce joli tracteur fera un complément attractif et bienvenu dans une collection de machines agricoles d'époque ou dans n'importe quelle collection de Lamborghini. Il saura attirer les foules, surtout s'il est associé aux plus belles grand tourisme qui partagent l'emblème au taureau de la marque avec lui, telles que la Miura ou la Countach.

1957 Lamborghini DLA 35 Tractor
Chassis no. 3050/35
Engine no. 3050/35

•Rare Lamborghini tractor
•One of an estimated 117 DLA 35s built
•Restored in 2016
•A most affordable route to Lamborghini ownership

Built well before the foundation of Automobili Lamborghini SpA in 1963, this DLA 35 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, gratifying state of affairs that no doubt prompted Ferruccio Lamborghini's declaration: 'A tractor a day keeps the misery away!'

One of an estimated 117 DLA 35 tractors built, chassis number '3050' is powered by Lamborghini's own three-cylinder engine with a displacement of 2,200cc and a relatively potent power output of 36bhp. Restored in 2016, it is finished in the correct orange and blue livery, and is fitted with new tyres. This beautiful tractor would make a distinctive and welcome addition to any significant collection of classic agricultural machinery, or a unique addition to any Lamborghini collection. It has the potential to draw crowds, especially when exhibited alongside the most beautiful supercars sharing the marque's famous 'raging bull' emblem, such as the legendary Miura and Countach.
