Footnotes

  • Built well before the foundation of Automobili Lamborghini SpA in 1963, this 1R 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, a gratifying state of affairs that no doubt prompted Ferruccio Lamborghini's declaration: 'A tractor a day keeps the misery away!'

    Offered with a copy of its Italian registration document, this Lamborghini 1R tractor was acquired by the current vendor approximately one year ago, since when he has restored it. Built between 1961 and 1965, the Lamborghini 1R was powered by a 1½-litre twin-cylinder air-cooled diesel engine producing 32 horsepower, which drove via a four-speed manual transmission with alternative high/low final-drive ratios. Described by the private vendor as in generally excellent condition, 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. Finished in the Lamborghini's classic orange/blue livery, 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.
