Founded in 1948, Lamborghini Trattori was well known for the production of not just tractors, but also of military and industrial engines. The company grew quickly, developing many specialized models and becoming one of the largest agricultural manufacturers in Italy. Details of Signor. Lamborghini’s tractor production are usually just a side note to the stories surrounding the 400 GT, Miura and Countach, however he was, in fact a very successful industrialist and the tractors that bear his name are still in production today. The 2R model is powered by a three cylinder, air cooled diesel engine, producing 39bhp fed through a four-speed gearbox with high and low differential settings.
This Lamborghini 2R Tractor is presented in very good condition having been restored recently. Largely original and correct, this 2R comes with its original Italian registration papers and also a NOVA number. The agricultural cousin of the Miura and 400GT, the 2R is a must have feature vehicle for any collector or enthusiast; a great example of where it all began for the brand. This particular example is ready to be used and at the reserve it is being offered at, surely is one not to be missed.
