Ferrucio Lamborghini had inherited a successful industrial company, making farm tractors, air conditioners and the like, and owned a few Ferraris in his time. Unhappy with the performance of the cars, the stories go that he approached Enzo Ferrari to voice his concerns and make suggestions, but Enzo wasn't impressed by a 'tractor maker'.
He then decided to make his own sports car, and the Lamborghini P350 was born. A decade (& a few lesser-known models) later came the Countach - that insect-winged, low-slung speedster everyone knows.
Based in Sant'Agata Bolognese, roughly on the opposite side of Modena as Maranello, the factory was under renovation during my visit, so there was no real photo opportunity other than from the roadway.
Since fall, 2001, there should have been a small museum in the lobby for visitors to view.
