So, you have a bunch of exotic rides stashed in the barn-turned-garage at your ranch? Nice. But you can’t really take those darlings through the rough of the ranch’s sometimes rather unforgiving terrains, do you? You could bag yourself a Land Rover to do that sort of things, but is a Land Rover a name in exotic rides? No, but this 1955 Lamborghini DL25 Tractor from Lamborghini Trattori surely is. Okay. It is not quite an exotic you expect, but it is the legit cousin of the Miuras and Countachs, and so, it is totally a Lamborghini. Wait, what? Yep. Lamborghini makes tractor and it was the marque’s bread and butter before it was known for its flamboyant supercars and that kind makes it kind of a fitting ride on your lovely ranch, doesn’t it?
The 1955 Lamborghini DL25 Tractor you see here is a restored example complete with the traditional Lamborghini Trattori red and blue bodywork and as well as on the wheels, providing the flashiness befitting a Lamborghini, but being a tractor, it is obviously not a vehicle that’s built for speed. So, pumping, fire-breathing V8 it does not have, instead a 2,504cc OHV 2-pot diesel motor with Bosch Diesel Injection, producing a modest 25 horses at a low, low 1,500 rpm, mated to a 4-speed stick shifter and a belt-driven PTO (power takeoff) allows this 1955 example to be used as a fun mode of transportation around your expansive ranch, or hooked up to farming equipment to carry out works it was originally designed to do.
Now, the thing about this 1955 example is, you may not find it extra special in Europe, but it is a rare find in the U.S. since Lamborghini tractors were never officially imported into stateside even until today (and yes, Lamborghini is still making tractors today). So, thanks to Auto Cherish, you Lamborghini aficionados in the U.S. for a cool £29,995, which works out to be around 36,522 American dollars. We are not familiar stateside’s tractor pricing, but I am guessing 37 grand for a tractor is a premium. But hey, it is a classic and a Lamborghini, is it not?
