Ferruccio Lamborghini was not only instrumental in establishing Automobili Lamborghini in 1963, but his unrelenting desire to continually improve and innovate resulted in the creation of two of the brand’s most iconic models: the Miura and the Countach.

The Bertone-designed Miura was more than a game changer; it revolutionised the automotive landscape as the original supercar. With its elegance and standard-setting performance levels, the mid-engine layout released in 1966 remains the definitive template for what a supercar should be over half a century later.

Lamborghini made his fortune building tractors in Sant’Agata. Still, his name remains most strongly linked with the Countach, one of the most daring designs ever. The Countach defined      Ferruccio’s belief that the unexpected could be achieved by always striving to be better. His entrepreneurial and pioneering spirit remains core to Lamborghini’s DNA.

Andrea Baldi, CEO of Automobili Lamborghini Americas, attended the ceremony to accept this great honour on behalf of Lamborghini. A marble plaque etched with Ferruccio Lamborghini’s signature has been installed in the Hall of Honor at the Automotive Hall of Fame, where visitors celebrate the men and women whose automotive innovations have changed the world and revolutionised our way of life.

Founded in 1939, The Automotive Hall of Fame has honoured 757 awardees worldwide who have impacted and influenced the automotive and mobility industries.
