Footnotes

  • 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. Currently registered in Belgium, 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.
