Did you know that Lamborghini produced tractors before cars? Owner, Ferrucio Lamborghini decided to create his own super cars when he had clutch problems with his Ferrari 250 GT. When he went to Enzo Ferrari's factory nearby to address the problem they quickly dismissed him since they had no time for a tractor manufacturer. Since that incident he went on to design the Lamborghini 350 GTV which became an instant hit at the Turin Auto Show in 1963.
