HISTORY

Automobili Lamborghini was founded in 1963 by the already highly successful Italian entrepreneur and businessman Ferruccio Lamborghini. He had a vision and desire to build ‘the best super sports car ever’, with many people thinking he was mad, due to the fact that at that time constructing and producing this kind of car was viewed as an unexplainable extravagance, high risk, plus something that would most likely squander his fortune without ever turning a profit.

Automobili Lamborghini’s first models were released in the mid-1960s, and were noted for their refinement, comfort and power. It was in 1963 when Lamborghini first gained worldwide acclaim with the beautiful Lamborghini Miura (or P400) sports coupé, which established the mid-engine design as the standard for high-performance cars of that era and the present day.

The Miura became the company’s flagship car and only ceased production in 1972 upon the arrival and launch of another defining sports supercar, the revolutionary Lamborghini Countach. During the 1970s and 1980s the Lamborghini Countach became the epitome of a true supercar and was the model all other manufacturers used as a benchmark, including the company’s Italian arch rival Ferrari dealers.    

It included design features (that have now been adopted by many other supercar producing manufacturers) which came to define this amazing vehicle. The Lamborghini Countach is a mid-engined supercar and pioneered the unique wedge-shaped body and scissor doors that came with a sharply angled look which is now popular in many current era high performance sports cars.

Another pioneering feature is the ‘cabin-forward’ cockpit design concept, which pushes the passenger compartment forward in order to allow the bay to accommodate a larger engine. This has now become a standard feature in most of today’s supercars, but was originally popularised by the Countach.

In the 1990s came the successor to the Countach, the mighty Lamborghini Diablo, which was launched at the prestigious Hotel de Paris in Monte Carlo and was famed for being the fastest car in production in the world at the time, with a top speed in excess of over 200mph.

The end of the nineties saw Lamborghini dealers being bought by Vokswagen AG and this introduced both stability and a new era to the Lamborghini marque.

The 2000s saw the company emerge as a dominant supercar manufacturer once again, making beautiful, powerful, fast and desirable vehicles. This period saw the realisation of a prototype (codenamed Project L140) that later became the hugely popular Murciélago, produced from 2001 to 2010. 2004 saw the updated LP640 coupe and roadster, plus the limited edition LP650-4 Roadster. The final Murciélago variant was the LP 670-4 SuperVeloce, which was powered by the largest and final evolution of the mighty Lamborghini V12 engine.

Within the Murciélago production period came the current Lamborghini Gallardo in 2005. The car featured an all-new power unit, thanks to the V10 engine which comes with two options for gearbox transmission; drivers can choose either a conventional manual six-speed gearbox or the highly advanced six-speed electro-hydraulically controlled/semi-automatic robotised manual, which Lamborghini simply calls the ‘E-gear’.

The Lamborghini Gallardo is the company’s most popular supercar to date and has evolved into many different versions, featuring two and four wheel drive options in either the 2-door coupé or spyder body style.

We have seen many different variants since the Lamborghini Gallardo’s introduction, with the most notable being the SE, Nera, LP 560-4 Super Trofeo, LP 560-4 Spyder, LP 550-2 Valentino Balboni, LP 570-4 Superleggera, Bicolore edition and Sesto Elemento, with several of these models being strictly limited edition production runs.

2011 saw the arrival of the mighty Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4, an all-new V12 supercar which acted as a direct replacement for the Murciélago.
