Ferruccio Lamborghini Inducted Into Automotive Hall Of Fame

Ferruccio Lamborghini Inducted Into Automotive Hall Of Fame

The founder of Lamborghini started with tractors, feuded with Ferrari, then built some of the world's most iconic supercars.

In 1963, Ferruccio Lamborghini started the company that bore his namesake. Actually, it was the second such company with his name, the first being Lamborghini Trattori in 1948. While Lamborghini tractors are certainly well-respected machinery in the agricultural world, his work with Automobili Lamborghini is what earned him a spot among 2022 inductees to the Automotive Hall of Fame.

The most recent ceremony took place on July 21, during which Lamborghini was recognized for his "unrelenting desire to always improve and innovate," a nod to the origins of Automobili Lamborghini after Ferruccio's experiences with Ferrari led him to believe he could build a better V-12 GT car. It began rather quietly with the 350GT, previewed in 1963 at the Turin Motor Show as the 350GTV. The 400GT followed, but the Automotive Hall of Fame highlights two Lamborghini models as proper icons. You damn well better know which cars we're talking about.
