The History of Automobili Lamborghini in Atlanta, GA

One look and you’ll instantly recognize the hexagon, the Y and the golden Lamborghini bull in black surround — stylistic elements from the House of Sant’Agata Bolognese that have marked Lamborghini models since their beginning. Both sporty and elegant, these sports cars, super sports cars and now SUV have changed the landscape of engineering and design — all thanks to the visionary genius of founder Ferruccio Lamborghini. From his humble beginnings in making tractors to claiming the start of a company known for engineering models with world-class refinement, performance and luxury, Ferruccio Lamborghini saw his company rise and fall but always resurrect to something greater than before.

For over half a century, Automobili Lamborghini designed a continuous stream of iconic vehicles, including the 350 GT, Miura, Espada, Countach, Diablo and the Murciélago, as well as limited editions such as the Reventón, Sesto Elemento, Veneno and the Centenario. Each vehicle promotes clear contours, precise lines and pure surfaces: unmistakably Lamborghini DNA. And, in tradition, each is named after breeds of fighting bulls. Retired models are coveted as lucky patrons and museums house them in protective possession, while those who drive current vehicles can turn quite a few heads on any city street. Let your curiosity unleash and continue reading about this world-renowned company below.

Automobili Ferruccio Lamborghini had its start in 1963 when Ferruccio Lamborghini purchased a large plot of land for his new, highly modernized factory. Later that year, the 350 GTV was presented as the first model from Automobili Lamborghini, and in 1964, the 350 GT soon followed.

A prolific period for Lamborghini, 1965-1966 saw an astonishing number of new models released (like the 400 GT and Miura), plus the seemingly extravagant chassis presented at the Lamborghini stand during the 1965 Turin Auto Show changed the history of the company (and the entire automotive industry).

With the flood of orders for the Miura inspiring confidence, Automobili Lamborghini released the Islero and Espada. Vertically opening doors, or gull wing doors, first appeared in the non-production Marzal, which was chosen by Prince Rainier of Monaco and Princess Grace to open the Monte Carlo Grand Prix.

Updates and improvements were made to each of the three series, and 1970 saw an “in-between” model, the Jarama, and a far more successful model, the P250 Urraco, named after a fighting bull. The LP 500, or better known as the ‘Coachtach,’ stunned critics with its single gradual curve that spanned the front fenders to the tail panel of the body.
