Ferruccio and the First Topolino Barchetta

It is 1947, and Ferruccio, still very young, has just returned from war.

In the background, we can see his first house and him driving the only model of “Barchetta Sport” that he built himself.

Despite the fact that his father had tried to pass on to him the commitment to working in the fields from his childhood, Ferruccio had always had another passion—one for engines and cars.

He loved to tinker with everything he saw, just as was the case with the Barchetta Sport built by Ferruccio himself on the basis of a Fiat Topolino to take part in the famous Mille Miglia 1948.

The result was the creation of a unique model capable of reaching the speed of 160 km/h—incredible for the time.

This was an exceptional outcome, especially if we take into account the fact that it was also one of Ferruccio’s first experiences in the world of motors.

This is just the beginning of an extraordinary story.

The Wait

This photo could be one of an ordinary man who is waiting for something to happen.

On the other hand, if you know the story behind this photo, you can see a man who would soon become the protagonist in the rebirth from the ashes of a nation destroyed by war.

As a matter of fact, on this exclusive photo from 1951, Ferruccio Lamborghini is in Mannheim, Germany, at the MWM headquarters, applying for a license to manufacture diesel engines for his tractors.

This moment marks the fundamental transition for Lamborghini Tractors from a small company that reused war leftovers to one engaged in real industrial production of tractors.

The Iconic Cigarette Test

This photo depicting Ferruccio on his estate in Umbria was taken in mid-1980s.

He is bent over the open engine of his personal Miura SV just a few moments before the famous “cigarette test”.

The test that confirms the uniqueness of this person who loved to take up challenges and wanted to show to Ferrari the superiority of Lamborghini cars.

So he lights up a cigarette and puts it right on the engine of his Miura.

He takes the driver’s seat, and while he accelerates, he laughs heartily because the cigarette is still there, in the same position he left it in.

Being a Legend

Some of them are not even available any longer and represent legacy, of which NFTs are the only remaining evidence in the world.

The legend of the man and entrepreneur continues to live on in these extremely rare pieces of history.

So don’t miss the opportunity to become part of the legend.
