When Two Mavericks Collide
Legend has it Ferruccio Lamborghini was heard complaining about some issues he was having with his Ferrari. Enzo Ferrari him self caught wind and said, "What does a tractor manufacturer know about sports cars?"
Challenge accepted. An incensed Lamborghini went about building his own 'supercar.'
Former Ferrari man, Giotto Bizzarrini, built the V12 and Bertone designer Franco Scaglione styled the body, which was built by Carrozzeria Sargiotto in Turin.
Ferruccio Lamborghini's 350 GTV was released to the world at the 1963 Turin Auto Show. Rumor has it the car attended the show without the engine. Mr. Lamborghini simply explained the hood couldn't be opened because he forgot the key.
