Ferruccio Lamborghini had two plants in Italy, one for the production of tractors, second - air conditioners, when he made a decision to affront Enzo Ferrari in the car manufacture. Lamborghini believed that Ferrari cars were too loud and like racing. He dreamed to build a car with high performance, with elegant interiors and high-tech engine. In 1963, at Turin Automobile Exhibition had its debut the model of 350 GTV, what marked the beginning of the Lamborghini history. In 1965, the designers developed P400 car with the engine located at rear bodywork and with cool, dynamic carriage design. With help of Bertone, which designed this project, Ferruccio Lamborghini had approved it and created Lamborghini Miura in 1966. The emblem with gloving bull was used for many years in all Lamborghini businesses. This emblem symbolizes Ferruccio zodiac symbol - Taurus. Ferruccio Lamborghini planned to create a plain, but at the same time perfect car class GT. So the car became Lamborghini Espada 400 GT, designed by Betone, released in 1968. This model became the biggest success of the next ten years. But painted in bright colors, Lamborghini Miura in those days are still known for their popularity among the rich playboys. In order to participate in all kinds of races, in 1970 the New Zealand racer Bob Wallace began to work on updating his Miura S. He changed bracket, lowered weight, appended spoilers to raise downforce and stiffen the whole structure. As a result, the weight of the vehicle close to 910 kg, and acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h now takes 3.6 seconds. A few hours after buying a car owner the following occurred car accident, which resulted in this unique instance of the Lamborghini Miura Jota burned to the ground. Despite the incredible array of orders for the new Lamborghini Countach, which debuted as a prototype at the Geneva Motor Show in 1971, Lamborghini came under the influence of the economic crisis, caught many by surprise at the time. In 1972, Ferruccio decides to sell most of its shares wealthy motorists from Switzerland Georges Henri Rossetti, and the rest - his friend René Leimer, in 1973. Thus, Lamborghini Automobili continued his story, but without its founder. 1970s affected the Lamborghini is not the best way. The oil crisis intensified, the demand for high-power sports cars fell. US raised safety requirements and testing have become stricter. Lamborghini tried to become a partner of companies such as BMW and Mobility Technology International, but both deals fell through. Henri Rossetti suffered from agoraphobia (fear of open spaces pathological) and rarely left the house, and therefore it is completely transferred to the Company inexperienced René Leimer. Since 1980, the Countach 400S became the only model manufactured in Sant'Agata In 1980, brothers Patrick and Jean-Claude Mimran bought Lamborghini. Brilliant idea to hire the legendary engineer Alfieri was the first step towards the revival of Lamborghini. At the Geneva Motor Show, held in 1981, were presented at the public display modified Countach and Miura, as well as new Jalpa. At this time began the production of off-road series LMA and Lamborghini Countach Quattrovalvole.   In 1987, Chrysler led by Lee Iaccoca buys Lamborghini for $ 33 million., as price of $ 30 million, above what was proposed in 1980 Mimranu. In that year, Chrysler decided to include Lamborghini racing Formula 1, but in the early 90s was forced to abandon the idea. Chrysler has promised to increase production by 20%, to build a new production line, paint shop, etc. But instead, in 1994, Lamborghini suddenly put up for resale. Only Lamborghini Diablo, released in 1990, justified the partnership with Chrysler. In 1998, Audi buys Lamborghini. Due to the nested funds and general appreciation, the current partnership model produces Lamborghini Murcielago in 2001. In 2003, at the Geneva Motor Show debut Gallardo. When the company celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2003, the number of vehicles produced reached 8082 copies. But by June 2010 Gallardo broke all records in the history of Lamborghini, surpassing the mark of 10 000 copies. Nowadays, Lamborghini Company becomes popular thanks to participation in Geneva Motor Show 2016. Here were presented a new model Lamborghini Huracan. Name of the model was selected in honor of insolent and bold bull, what have an impact on a car temper. In 2016 this car manufacture plan to produce 9 copies of secret roaster Lamborghini Veneno.
