It was Lamborghini that made tractors.
Ferruccio Lamborghini stole old army vehicles and made tractors.


O.T. But Necessary
Ferruccio Lamborghini once owned a Ferrari. In that Ferrari the clutch was not working fine.
Ferruccio told this to Enzo Ferrari. Enzo Ferrari told Ferruccio that he ( Ferruccio ) is a tractor maker so he ( Ferruccio ) does not know anything about the clutch.
Ferruccio told Enzo that he will show how clutch are suppossed to be.
And then the car making Lamborghini came up.

I don't understand why there are no pictures on that site. Picture quizzes could have been a lot more interactive, but nevertheless to learn something everyday on cars sails the boat for petrol heads like me.

And I did some research after all, Porsche did make tractors. google images or search.

Note from the Team-BHP Support : Please take the time to use proper punctuation as per Team-BHP rules. Avoid...typing...like...this. Thanks.
