Description

Italian libretto
Chassis no. 10576

- Superb restoration
- Interesting model from Lamborghini
- Attractive specification
- No reserve

It is amusing to note that this tractor came off the assembly line just a year before Ferruccio Lamborghini opened his car factory in Sant'Agata. It should not be forgotten that before building top-end supercars, Lamborghini produced high-quality tractors. The 2 R model presented here was powered by a three-cylinder air-cooled diesel engine developing 39 bhp, mated to a four-speed gearbox with a two-speed reduction drive giving two sets of gear ratios. At the time, it was one of the high-end tractors on the market.
This tractor was delivered new to Signor Milani in Codrea di Ferrara, a small village about 40 km from the birthplace of its manufacturer. Purchased in 2015 by its current owner, it was then completely restored by Agostino Amaducci, Cesena and has never been used since. In order to preserve it, all the fluids have been drained. Shod with new tyres and attractively finished in the marque's characteristic colours of orange and blue, the tractor is in fine condition. Unusually, it comes with its original registration and tag, and service booklets and owner's manual.
