Ferruccio Lamborghini was born in a grape farmers family on April 28, 1916 in Renazzo, Italy. As he always wanted to do something with mechanics, Ferruccio attended a technical school in Bologna.
During the second World War he was working for the transport sections in the Italian Air Force. After the war he returned to his hometown and by 1949 was able to start building tractors at the Lamborghini Trattori factory. Quite soon the Lamborghini tractors became known as the best in Italy.
When his tractor business brought him wealth and success, Ferruccio bought a Ferrari in 1958. But for Ferruccio's taste the Ferrari was too noisy and rough on the road, and it had an inferior transmission that often needed repairing.
Lamborghini took his complaints about his Ferrari to Enzo Ferrari, who didn’t appreciate technical notes from a tractor manufacturer. Driven by Enzo’s insult, Ferruccio got to work designing his car immediately, and in just 4 months unveiled the Lamborghini 350 GTV at the Turin Motor Show in October 1963. By the end of 1964 Lamborghini sold his first 13 cars (renamed 350 GT).
