Murciélago is the name of a Spanish
fighting bull whose life was spared after a
particularly fierce performance, fighting

Don Antonio Miura and went on to
father a formidable line of fighting bulls
that extends down to the present day.

Automobili Lamborghini. Heritage, passion, performance
Ferruccio Lamborghini, the man with
the inspiration, skill and determination
to turn a dream into reality, was
born in a village near Bologna, in April
1916. His parents were farmers, but
Ferruccio’s interest was in technology
He started purchasing old military
vehicles and converting them into
tractors, meeting the significant
demands in Italy after the war. His
commercial success resulted in the
purchase of a workshop where, from
1948 onward, Lamborghini tractors
Ferruccio embarked on producing
helicopters, one of his life-long
ambitions, but when the Italian
government refused to grant him a
license, he made the decision to turn his
attention to cars. The automotive world
was never the same again.
Ferruccio Lamborghini opened a car
factory in Sant’ Agata in 1963, delivering
the first Lamborghini, a 350 GT, in 1964.
Since, then, Lamborghini has seen highly
successful as well as difficult times under
a variety of owners, but still managing to
produce some of the most extraordinary
cars the world has seen.
The ‘charging bull’ symbol reflects the
Taurean birth sign of Ferruccio, still
famously sported on all Lamborghini
The theme continued through the
naming of cars after legendary fighting
bulls: models such as the Miura,
Countach and Diablo, and currently
Murcielago and Gallardo, conjure similar
emotions in school boys and grown men,
making it perhaps the most aspirational
performance marque in the
