The Attractions

The only reason Lamborghini's famous sports cars have come to light is because of the tractors of the house of the bull. According to the story that is told, the Italian brand specialising in agricultural machinery was so successful that its owner, Ferruccio Lamborghini, became a very good customer of Ferrari. When the sports car manufacturer refused some of his advice and an argument broke out between him and Enzo Ferrari, Lamborghini decided to start his own sports car brand out of pure spite.

It is a fascinating story - but many people do not realise how successful Lamborghini tractors were - which continued to sell in impressive numbers until the 1970s. Extremely robust, and equipped with truly remarkable features for the time, the 2R was sold in more than 2,000 examples during the 1960s.

This particular example from has been carefully restored, taking great care to preserve its original features. The tractor has been repainted in its original Orange and Blue colours, a striking combination that is sure to attract attention. The air-cooled 2,193 cm³ engine has been completely overhauled and now runs as it did when it first left the factory.

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.
