Description

1961 Lamborghini DLA 35 Tractor
Registration no. not UK registered
Chassis no. to be advised

Ferruccio Lamborghini started building tractors in 1948. He used war surplus materials at first but by 1952 was making tractors of his own design powered by water-cooled MWM engines. Later he developed his own engines and by 1959 they were air-cooled. The success of the tractor business enabled Lamborghini to branch out into motor manufacturing in 1963; the rest, as they say, is history.

In 1970 a large order of tractors for Bolivia was cancelled following a coup d'état, hitting the company's finances. Eventually all the tractors were sold, but Ferruccio had decided to concentrate his efforts on his automobile business and in 1973 sold the Lamborghini Trattori company to the SAME group. Lamborghini's tractors are now prized by collectors.

This Lamborghini tractor was restored during 2015 and comes with Italian paperwork. Boasting four new tyres and described by the vendor as in generally excellent condition, it would make a distinctive and welcome addition to any significant collection of classic agricultural machinery or a unique addition to any Lamborghini collection. It has the potential to draw crowds, especially when exhibited alongside the most beautiful supercars sharing the marque's famous 'Raging Bull' emblem, such as the legendary Miura and Countach. An excellent opportunity to buy the cheapest Lamborghini on the market!
