The Allies, after two years took over and apprehended anyone they set eyes on as prisoners in the garrison and ong them was Ferruccio. They were highly impressed with his handiworks as a mechanic like repairing of broken parts and fixing car tyres and instructed him to fix their vehicles for them on the condition that after one year he would be allowed to leave.

The ramifications of the war plunged Italy into financial crisis and the visionary Ferruccio made up his mind to venture into agriculture by building tractors and remodeling military equipment to farming machines.

He soon started the Lamborghini Tratori in the year 1948 and the whole of Italy were enthused at the originality of his cars. Soon afterwards, he ventured into oil refinery in the year 1959 and flourished in that sector.

He started to purchase cars to satisfy his passion. A Ferrari 250 which he bought didn’t meet his preference for a luxury car and sighted several faults in various compartments of the car especially with its clutches and approached the owner of Ferrari apparently to pinpoint the mechanical faults with his manufactured car.

This didn’t go down well for the owner, Enzo Ferrari who used unprintable words on his customer and ttold him to go and establish his own car company.
