Call me crazy, but ever since I was a little boy I always wanted to own an orange Lamborghini. My love for the car began when my father took me and my brother for a museum tour whilst on holiday in Bologna. Dad was very much into classic cars and himself owned a 1974 Jensen Interceptor which he had lovingly restored. It was a convertible, and was as he liked to tell us, the car he used to drive when he was dating our mother. Not sure if it had any effect on eventually winning her over but it was a magnificent car nonetheless.
The Lamborghini museum was a wonderful place. We got to go on a tour of the production lines which give you a real sense of the history of the company. Lamborghini is not much more than 50 years old. It was created in 1963 by Ferruccio Lamborghini. Ironically he began making tractors after the war out of surplus military machines. Eventually he had made enough money to buy himself a brand new Ferrari. It was this first purchase that led to Ferruccio’s love of sports cars.
