This Is The Story Of How Lamborghini Gave The Middle Finger To Ferrari

/ Comments

The story of Lamborghini is one of the best in all of automotive history.

Unless you just completely don't care about automotive history, you probably know a little bit about Lamborghini's rise as a supercar manufacturer. Today, Lamborghini is one of a handful of prestige marques alongside the likes of Ferrari, but that wasn't always the case. The Lamborghini company started off building humble tractors in Italy. The founder of the company, Ferruccio Elio Arturo Lamborghini, made so much money selling his tractors that he was eventually able to buy the most premier sports car in Italy, a Ferrari.

Even after spending so much money on a Ferrari, Lamborghini disappointingly found that the clutch on his car was always broken, so he approached Enzo Ferrari himself to complain about the issue. Ferrari ignored Lamborghini, so he decided to fix the issue himself and start his own car company just to spite Ferrari.

The first car Lamborghini produced was the 350 GT, which was named after the Ferrari 250 GT, but with 100 added as a big middle finger to Enzo Ferrari. The Lamborghini Ferrari story was so good, that there were rumors that someone was going to make a movie about it. YouTube channel Donut Media does a good job outlining the story, and making us laugh in the process.
