Did you know that Ferruccio Lamborghini made a Lamborghini tractor before he made sports cars? Back in World War II, Lamborghini used surplus military machines to create tractors that were high in demand in his region. The company is still selling top-notch tractors because of its founder’s agricultural roots. Read on to learn about the most fascinating (and probably the fanciest) tractor around.
Lamborghini Tractor: The Elite Farmer’s Best Friend
How fast is a Lamborghini Tractor?
Several types of tractors are designed specifically for various uses. As for Lamborghini tractors, there are open field tractors, vineyard and orchard tractors, crawlers, mini tractors, and front loaders. Each tractor’s speed varies according to the use and model.
Speed matters mostly with the open field type of tractor. The Crono Stage III B, which is an open field type, can go up to 30 km/hour or 40 km/hour. Another open field tractor, the Nitro, can go up to 40 km/hour or 50 km/hour. A vineyard and orchard tractor, the Spire S/V model, can reach 40 km/hour.
What was the first Lamborghini Tractor?
Lambo sports cars are great, but they were not among the first Lamborghini ever made. The L 33 was the first production tractor Lamborghini made. It was built in 1951 and was made almost entirely by Lamborghini, with the exception of the engine. The tractor came with a fuel atomizer, which was patented by Ferruccio Lamborghini himself.
Who makes Lamborghini Tractors?
Lamborghini Trattori is an Italian tractor manufacturer responsible for producing Lamborghini tractors. Ferruccio Lamborghini, the founder, established Lamborghini Automobiles later. It’s surprising, but before Lamborghini was known for its hot sports cars, it was the first manufacturer of reliable tractors.
Ferruccio Lamborghini was born into a farming family. Upon returning to Italy after World War II, he turned leftover military engines into powerful tractors farmers needed at the time. Only after the immense success of the tractor business – and due to his undying passion for sports cars (and frustration with Ferrari) – did Ferruccio move on to build the sports cars about which people now rave.
How fast is a tractor at top speed?
Lamborghini cars are really fast, but tractors are a different story. Tractors differ in speed according to their use and model. Some of the fastest Lamborghini tractors can go from 40 km/hour to 60 km/hour. One of the fastest tractors is from Lamborghini’s open field type models – the Mach VRT. The Mach VRT can reach a top speed of 60 km/hour. Next to the Mach is the Nitro, which is also an open field model. The Nitro can go up to 50 km/hour.
The Spark is another open field type model that is among the fastest. It can reach up to 40 km/hour. Several vineyard and orchard models can hit the same speed. The Spire S/V and Strike TB are among the vineyard and orchard models with a top speed of 40 km/hour.
How much is a Lamborghini Tractor?
Lamborghini tractors seem more expensive than other tractors, but when you take a closer look at them, you’ll see that their quality makes them a good investment. Older models, which are second-hand, are sold starting at around $8,000. If you’re not particular about owning second-hand equipment, this is a good start to see if the brand is right for you.
Newer models, such as the Nitro, cost much more. A Nitro starts at $94,600. Its fully loaded VRT version can cost up to $146,000 depending on taxes.

It is surprising to see Lamborghini making anything that isn’t a super fast, slick, and luxurious sports car. The founder of the car clearly had a passion for motor vehicles of all types, uses, and modes. Whether it’s the need for speed or for being a farmer’s best friend, Lamborghini has what you want!
