Lamborghini Album

Details

Three giants of Italian motoring were born within a triangle formed by Bologna, Modena and Cento. Enzo Ferrari, Adolfo Orsi (of Maserati) and Ferruccio Lamborghini were all born within 20 miles of each other. They were all from similar poor backgrounds, but had very different temperaments. Lamborghini was very much the brash, driven and ambitious self-made millionaire, fond of extravagant gestures. Ferruccio was born under the star sign of Taurus the bull, so his car names related to fighting bulls. The first Lamborghini car to be given a name was called Miura after Eduardo Miura, a renowned breeder of Spanish fighting bulls he had visited in Seville. Other bullfighting-related names included Islero, Espada, Jarama, Urraco, Jalpa and Gallardo. Lamborghini sold his company in 1974, and after several changes of ownership, it became part of Volkswagen Group's Audi division. This publication gives a brief overview of the history of this company.
