The Lamborghini brand is one of the greatest Italian supercar brands with a life of nearly 60 years. The famous and interesting story about the reason why Mr. Ferruccio Lamborghini decided to found Lamborghini has been heard by most car enthusiasts, but the development of Lamborghini from the early days is a the great. A very young manufacturing team and their efforts have helped them quickly create famous car models from the early days such as the Miura or Countach.

Behind the favorable start and development direction of the Italian super cow company from the early days is Lamborghini’s staff. They are all talented and very good in their professional fields and thanks to this, Lamborghini has had a solid foundation for development right from the early years of its establishment.

Ferruccio Lamborghini

 

The most important person in the history of the brand is founder Ferruccio Lamborghini. He was the one who invented a tractor from leftover equipment after the war and built a successful tractor manufacturing business. Ferruccio then became an established businessman and he decided to enter the auto industry to redefine the direction of the brand. In a time when society still followed rigid rules, Ferruccio had a big goal to build the best GT cars in the world. He also recruited a team of young engineers, many of whom had just graduated from college.

Giampaolo Dallara

Giampaolo Dallara was appointed Technical Director of Lamborghini when he was only 27 years old. Under his direction, the first commercial Lamborghinis were gradually completed and commercially produced. One of the most impressive car models with his contribution is the Lamborghini Miura – The car is called by the new term “Supercar”. The Miura was born with a perfect design, a low profile and a four-liter engine designed with four overhead camshafts. The car model has always been known as a collector’s item that any supercar enthusiast wishes to own to this day.

Paolo Stanzani

In 1968, Mr. Paolo Stanzani, then a young engineer, was appointed to the position of Technical Director and Senior Managing Director. He joined Lamborghini in 1963 when he was only 27 years old. Stanzani is known for developing the Countach project and turning the car into the fastest supercar in the world for nearly 20 years. The Lamborghini Countach has been adopted by the engineering and development team with a new drive system, with the drive shaft passing through the engine block and is the first commercial car equipped with scissor doors. Stanzani then created the Urraco, a four-seat Berlinetta model with many design and technical breakthroughs.

Bob Wallace

Bob Wallace was born in 1938 in Auckland, New Zealand. He is known as Lamborghini’s main test driver from 1963 to 1975. Furthermore, he was the one who had great contributions in the development process of all Lamborghini models at that time when the car ran on the road. city. He is credited with creating a system of working and testing that to this day is considered the basis of Automobili Lamborghini’s R&D department. Bob Wallace once had an agreement with Ferruccio Lamborghini to create new components and solutions from used parts using the brand’s machinery when the production line was idle. It was from these spare parts that Bob Wallace installed them on test cars and later created the Miura “Jota”, Jarama “Bob” and Urraco “Rallye”. It was from this work that Bob Wallace contributed significantly to the outstanding development of Lamborghini and helped the brand soon become a strong international car brand.

Franco Scaglione

He was a contemporary of Ferruccio Lamborghini. Franco was born in Florence in 1916 and was during the golden age of the Futurist movement, where artists were constantly searching for dynamism. After studying aerospace engineering, he pursued his passion for design and began working as a fashion designer before designing cars. It was his Berlinette Aerodinamiche Tecniche brand that introduced aerodynamic research into automobile design since the 1950s. In 1963, at Lamborghini’s direct request, Scaglione designed the body of the first Gran Turismo. at Sant’Agata Bolognese. The lines of the 350 GTV are distinctive with its rounded shape, very thin pillars and curved windows.

Giulio Alfieri

Engineer Giulio Alfieri was born in 1924 in Parma and graduated from Milan Polytechnic University shortly after the end of World War II. He joined Lamborghini in 1975 and was appointed General Director in 1982, ushering in a new era of composite materials. He was responsible for developing the Countach Evoluzione, a prototype based on the Countach made almost entirely of carbon fiber, about 500 kg lighter than the normal Countach and capable of exceeding speeds of 330 km/h. These researches were then soon applied to car models with the Countach 25th in 1988 and the Diablo introduced in 1990. To this day, the technology for developing and applying carbon fiber materials remains one of the Lamborghini’s most successful areas.
