1959 Lamborghini DL20 ‘Lamborghinetta’

Highlights

  • Restored between 2017 and 2018 by its previous owner, an experienced mechanic and collector
  • One of the rare last examples produced, in the classic orange and blue colour scheme
  • A rare DL20 with the first real Lamborghini engine
  • In excellent condition, perfect for exhibitions, museums and collectors

The Appeal

Lamborghini's little DL20, affectionately known as the 'Lamborghinetta,' looks irresistibly nice. But these tractors were designed for hard work and were the first to be equipped with engines manufactured by Lamborghini.
This is one of the last examples produced, so it correctly sports Lamborghini's iconic orange and blue colour scheme, also adopted by its bigger brothers. It was restored between 2017 and 2018 by its previous owner, an experienced tractor collector and mechanic. Since then it has been started up and used infrequently but regularly and only for local exhibitions.
Its condition is that of a vehicle kept with great care and affection and would be perfect for any collection or museum. The DL20 is one of Lamborghini's most fascinating classic tractors and this is certainly one of the smartest examples available.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.

Anti-sniping

Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
€0 to €9,999 €100.00
€10,000 to €49,999 €250.00
€50,000 to €99,999 €500.00
€100,000 + €1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

Pre-authorisation

We may hold a pre-authorisation charge on your card until the end of the auction when the hold will be cancelled. If you win, we'll take a security deposit which counts towards the payment for the vehicle and isn't any extra cost to you.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you're able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
