2013 marks the 50th anniversary of Lamborghini. The company’s history is one of challenges and uncontested records, set by the ambitious talent of its founder Ferruccio Lamborghini, who decided to create one of the world’s most beautiful and powerful super sports cars. 100 years of innovation in half the time: Lamborghini was born under the sign of the Bull, with a constant view to the future, a desire to achieve the impossible and to make innovative design and technology its signature. Cars like the 350 GT, the Miura, the Countach, the LM 002 and today’s Gallardo and Aventador are the perfect embodiment of Lamborghini’s future vision. “I want to build the perfect car” was the declaration with which Ferruccio launched his ambitious project: an extreme, no-compromise, authentically Italian concept that has always distinguished Lamborghini as an automotive brand of excellence. Today, Lamborghini is a company which has remained true to its origins yet has an international reach: present in 45 countries, it operates through a network of more than 120 dealers. However, the heart of Lamborghini’s production remains at its home in Sant’Agata Bolognese,the same place where the factory’s foundation was laid in May, 1963.
