Description

With Trattori Lamborghini celebrating their 70th aniversary, we feel privileged to conduct the very first sale of a Lamborghini Tractor at a Swiss auction.

The presentation of the tractor will be done by none other than Dr. Fabio Lamborghini himself, arriving from Italy especially for this event. He will also take the opportunity to sign the 2R for the new owner. In 1965 the list price for a 2R was 1.4 Mio Lira and the last example sold at auction in the USA (in unrestored condition!) fetched a remarkable 59'000 US Dollars.

A rare and completely restored Tractor made by the famed sports car manufacturer from Sant’ Agata Bolognese. The vehicle is painted in the classic Gulf-livery of pale blue and orange and sports an overhauled Matching-Numbers three cylinder Lamborghini diesel engine and a 4-speed reduction gearbox. The tractor, which is in splendid condition, is sold with EU papers. If it is to remain in Switzerland, Swiss customs duty must be paid. Although it would be a shame to expose this tractor to the harsh rigors of farmlife or a wineyard, it would nevertheless make an interesting and nearly indispensable addition to any Lamborghini collection.

As the elder brother of the Miura, 400GT and LM002, this 1'520 kilograms of high class Italian steel is a "must have" for any serious collector and enthusiast. Few people know that the starter motor is, in fact, the same reliable unit used in both the Miura and the 2R. (So much for valuable anorak knowlege!) What remains without question though is the fact that without the famous Lamborghini tractors there wouldn't be any Lamborghini supercars.
Being one of only 1'400 units built and in such fantastic condition, the 2R on sale must be the best remaining in the world.
