The Appeal


After the war, Italy needed to feed itself and to do so it needed tractors. The problem was that petrol was scarce, and while diesel was more readily available, Italy had yet to develop a good number of engines that could use it.

The enterprising engineer Ferruccio Lamborghini discovered that he could develop a diesel engine from the six-cylinder Morris truck engines left behind by British soldiers after the war. His lucrative tractor-building business laid the foundations for the Lamborghini empire we know and love today.

This rare DL25 has been masterfully restored by Simone Gallerani, a professional engineer with a passion for Lamborghini tractors. This tractor's striking lines and contrasting Rosso Fuoco and Grigio Topo colours make it a unique piece. This tractor is a significant piece of automotive history that would enrich any Lamborghini collection.
