Lamborghini v.s Ferrari: The Amazing Full Story

Aurora Johnson July 24, 2013 0

Lamborghini and Ferrari: two of the best luxury sports car manufacturers in the world.

But did you know that the Lamborghini supercar brand wouldn t exist if Enzo Ferrari had never snubbed Ferruccio Lamborghini?

That s right because Enzo was rude to him, Ferruccio made it his life s work to get his own back in the most fantastic way possible.

Ferruccio Lamborghini started out life as the son of wine farmers in Northern Italy, and began building tractors using surplus military hardware after WWII. Eventually, his tractor business was booming, becoming the largest in the country.

Because of his impressive bank balance, Ferruccio was able to indulge in his love of luxury cars. He got his first Ferrari in 1958 and quickly found that they weren t quite to his tastes. For starters, the clutch was the same make as found in his tractors, and it quickly failed in his Ferrari.

When Ferruccio approached Enzo and asked him to replace his broken clutch with a better one, Enzo reportedly told him that:

You know how to drive a tractor, but you ll never learn to drive a Ferrari

Isn t revenge sweet?

One can only imagine what Ferriccio s reaction to that was, but we like to think it was something along the lines of I ll show you ! .

So, what did Ferruccio do? He proceeded to pour all of his resources into creating the best luxury car anyone had ever seen. If he couldn t buy it, he would just have to build it.

The facts and figures

In order to keep competition going with Ferrari, or just to annoy him, Lamborghini always sold its cars at a loss. Unfortunately, it couldn t last. Ferruccio eventually had to give up the company because of bankruptcy in 1978, when it was sold to Patrick Mimran and then, in 1987, to Chrysler.

The distance between Ferrari and Lamborghini is still pretty stark as well.

Lamborghini posted revenues of 403m in 2012, up 126m on 2011. It also produced almost 2,200 vehicles in 2012, compared to around 1,700 in 2011. The company employs over 830 people and has a total equity of 720m.

Ferrari 458 Italia GT

Ferrari s revenue. on the other hand, was 18 billion in 2011. It produced over 7,000 units in the same year. It also employs over 2,000 people.

So, then, we re left with the age-old discussion of whether a Lamborghini or a Ferrari drives better. And this, we fear, really comes down to personal preference.

We d like to think that Lamborghini will close the gap eventually though, if only so the late Ferruccio can finally realise his dream of winning out over Enzo.
