Probably there are only a few names that are further etched in auto lore than the name of Lamborghini.
The Italian car maker was formed in the 1960s to fight with the likes of Ferrari, and after a few years picked up a large amount of traction among car enthusiasts.
The company has constant development and today is one of the world’s leaders in engineering and design, releasing swaths of cars over the year that have moved the boundaries on many fronts. Today their cars are mainly noticed driving up to red carpets at main Hollywood premiers, or in some occasions carefully placed beyond fancy restaurants, or enjoyed by rich Wall Street brokers presenting their status symbols.
In the past 50 years there have been made big jumps in driving technology, and Lamborghini has taken its part. Creating probably insane concept vehicles and always searching for ways to develop and improve performance of their cars ever so slightly has become the company’s calling-card, and with every passing decade, it has just become better.
Lamborghini has nowadays created some of the fastest cars in the world, and for sure some of the most recognizable.
