Unexplainable extravagance and a masterpiece of perfection

Founded in 1963 by an ambitious and wealthy Ferruccio Lamborghini, the now world-famous brand was born out of a desire to compete with the successful Ferrari super sports cars. Although many thought he was mad, Lamborghini’s passion and drive led to the creation of a high quality, top spec model, created in a purpose-built factory in Italy.

The 350 GTV was a masterpiece and spurred Lamborghini on to develop two offshoot models in quick succession. These three models are the only Lamborghinis to bear alphanumeric names. The cars that followed had quite a different style.

The Bull

The imagery and world of bullfighting is woven into the Lamborghini brand. Adopting the raging bull itself as their emblem, Lamborghini started to name his cars after the most powerful and majestic fighting creatures. From the Miura to the Murcielago, the Islero to the Estoque, the ensuing models were given these impressive monikers, named after breeds of fighting bulls or legends from bull fighting history. Ferruccio Lamborghini was clear about his brand’s vision – to be seen as strong, brave and resilient – the best.
