Refinement, power, and comfort?these three words best surmise the essence of Lamborghini cars. Since the company was founded in 1963 by Ferrucio Lamborghini, it has been providing the market incredible luxury sports cars that run as good as they look. Lamborghini cars instantly became a hit, and business was good during its first decade. However, the brand started to experience difficulties during the oil crisis of the 1970s. In fact, it went through three bankruptcies before Chrysler finally took over operations in 1987. After a few years, Chrysler could no longer maintain Lamborghini due to economic reasons, so they decided to sell it to Malaysian and Indonesian companies, Mycom Setdoc and V'Power Comporation, respectively. These two powerhouse Asian companies could not revive the brand, so it was sold again in 1998 to Audi?a subsidiary of the Volkswagen group.
Audi's purchase of Lamborghini resurrected the brand in terms of production and sales. In fact, Lamborghini cars experienced an all-time high from 2007 to 2008 when they were able to sell a record number of vehicles. Even though the new owner of the brand was a German company, the main manufacturing facility stayed in Bolognese, Italy. Lamborghini also remained to produce its vehicles in small numbers, which makes its cars even more in demand. Ever since the brand started in the automobile industry, it's always been known for its ground-breaking and fresh designs. And as you know, driving around with a Lamborghini definitely turns heads everywhere. So, whether you own a classic like the Countach, Miura, and Diablo or drive a newer model like the Aventador and Reventon, you know very well that your Lamborghini has a distinct and unique design that is unlike any other.
The iconic scissor doors
Aside from its angular appearance, low-slung ground effect engineering, and extremely powerful 4-Liter V12 engine, Lamborghinis are most well known for their iconic scissor doors. Perhaps the most popular model to sport this feature is the 1974 LP 400 Countach. Today, Lamborghini continues to wow the world with its exceptionally fast and futuristic-looking cars. It continues to produce vehicles with designs that can blow people minds. Truly, Lamborghini is one of the brands in the automotive industry that has been defining what it means to ride in style.
