Default About the bull

O.T- wonder what is the story behind Lambo's Bull?[/quote]


Ferrucio Lamborghini was born on April 28, 1916 in a small Italian farming village, Renazzo di Cento, Ferrara. Even as a small child it was obvious that Ferrucio had a keen aptitude for anything mechanical. During WWII he was drafted into the Italian services where he repaired vehicles. After the war he built tractors from spare parts to help his country recoup after suffering the devastation of the war years In 1963 he founded the Lamborghini Automobili company due to his lack of satisfaction with the Ferrari he owned. He knew he could build a better car. He used his birth sign, Taurus the bull, as a symbol for his cars. Most of his cars were named in connection with bulls. In March of 1964 the first production car arrived, the 350 GT. During the 60's the future of the company looked very bright. The 350 GT, the 400 GT and the 400 GT 2+2 made the Lamborghini name known throughout the world.

The story is written half way...
Here are some of the missing facts in the Lambo Story...
Mr. F Lamborghini became really rich becoz of this tractor company and he always had a passion for cars. So the obvious choice was a Ferrari. But at that point in time there were some gear shiftting problems in a Ferrari and some finesse lacking in it. So one day when he met Mr. Ferrari himself he told him about the problem. But Mr. Ferrarri insulted him by saying... "What will a tractor manufacturing farmer know the driving finesse and quality of race/sports car" .. This statement enraged Mr. Lamborghini to an extent where he decided to make sports cars himself which were better than a Ferrari and this is how Automobili Lamborghini was born in Italy...
