Specification

 

For better or worse, Tractors make up a significant bulk of Lamborghini's history. Founded in 1948 by the legendary Ferruccio Lamborghini, Lamborghini Trattori used discarded war materials to produce its first tractors. Military vehicle engines and differentials sourced from ARAR centres were used to build the first "Carioca" Tractors.

Within a few years, company production had risen from 1 unit a week to around 200 per year, and new Italian-built engines were replacing the war surplus units.

The enactment of the Fafani law of 1962 helped Lamborghini Trattori to take a quantum leap in terms of quality and scale. The law set aside a subsidy for farmers who bought Italian-built agricultural machinery and allowed Lamborghini Trattori to develop into a legitimate industrial affair.

A new plant was opened in 1956, and in 1962 the company released the model we have on offer, the Lamborghini 2R.

The example we have for sale has benefitted from a recent aesthetic and mechanical overhaul, leaving it in the striking, period correct Orange and Blue colourway.

The perfect, if slightly alternative, addition to any serious car collection.
