This visit had a solid influence on the Italian manufacturer. As a matter of fact, he was so satisfied by the traditional art of bullfighting, that he decided to call all his new sports cars after popular fighting bulls.

14. Surprisingly, Lamborghini autos are utilized by the authorities of United Arab Emirates and Italy. It makes good sense if you think of it; nothing can detract offenders and also draw in tourists like the globe’s fastest police wagon!
15. As we have already discussed, Feruccio Lamborghini overlooked motorsports and also tried to steer clear of from it.

In 1988, the renowned Argentinian manufacturer, excited to put in use his developer ability and make his very own item, produced a brand-new firm Pagani Automobili S.p.A.
20. Nowadays, Lamborghini supercars are powered by either V8 or V12 engines. The proportion in between those 2 engine kinds is roughly 3:1.
