Ferruccio Lamborghini/Enzo Ferrari

Alright kids gather round its story time! Today I’ll be telling you a little tale about Ferrari and Lamborghini. This is an origin story when it comes to Lambo. So here it goes; Back in the 1960’s, Ferruccio Lamborghini’s tractor business was booming. Like most wealthy people he decided that the best way to celebrate was to buy himself a Ferarri! After he bought one to his dismay he was quite disappointed with it. He thought that it could be better and more than that, he thought he knew how to make it better. So like a loyal Ferrari customer he went to the owner himself; Enzo. He told him that he liked the Ferrari he had purchased but he had some suggestions on how to make it even better. Enzo looked at him and told him he didn’t need a tractor owner’s advice. Instead of brushing that remark off or backhanding Enzo across the face, Ferruccio decided on a different approach. He was going to build his own top notch performance car company and show Enzo Ferrari just what he was missing out on. The next forty six years is history.

There you have it. The high end Italian automaker known as Lamborghini was built out of spite! It’s okay Lambo we still love you!
