Lamborghini – Built to Spite Ferrari

Lamborghini – Built to Spite Ferrari – Ferruccio Lamborghini was the owner of a successful tractor company and a sports car enthusiast. He owned several sports cars from Alfa Romeo, Lancia, Mercedes, Jaguar, and Maserati, as well as some Ferraris. Frustrated with fragile clutches in his Ferraris, he approached Enzo Ferrari about his complain, who turned him away. Lamborghini repaired his 250GT with a clutch from a tractor, which worked better than the original, and after that decided to start a sports car company to spite Ferrari.
