Featuring some of the most flamboyantly styled cars ever sold, this collection of new Lamborghini pictures reflects the desire of Ferrucio Lamborghini to build and sell what he felt was the perfect sports car.
Lamborghini started building sports cars after a dismissive conversation with Enzo Ferrari about the nature of the comfort and reliability of Mr. Ferrari’s cars. Lamborghini, a wealthy industrialist, owned many of the most capable cars of his day. So quite naturally he was drawn to the glamorous thoroughbreds from Maranello. However, he ultimately found them noisy, uncomfortable, and prone to clutch failure.
Here it should be noted; Lamborghini’s industrial empire had been built on the manufacturing of tractors. As you’re perusing this collection of new Lamborghini images, imagine if you will the response of a prideful Enzo Ferrari, consistent winner of Formula 1 Grand Prix titles, a man who only built road cars to support his racing effort, being dressed down by a man he thought of as nothing more than a tractor mechanic.
Yeah—you nailed it.
That’s pretty much exactly how Ferrari responded to Lamborghini’s concerns.
However, as you’ll see in this collection of new Lamborghini photos, Mr. Lamborghini was quite successful in his quest to build his idea of the perfect sports car. The model that really put Lamborghini on the map was the 1967 Lamborghini Miura, the world’s first mid-engine exotic sports car. The first Lamborghini to be named after a fighting bull—a pattern continuing to this day—the Miura also established the style Lamborghini cars follow to this day.
