A century ago a man was born who would set the world of the Italian sports car on its ear. That man was Ferruccio Lamborghini, a complicated and passionate man, who would have been 100 years old today.

Automotive enthusiasts are typically aware of the reason behind Lamborghini spinning the automotive brand off from his tractor company and how he vowed to beat Ferrari at their own game.
But that’s just scratching the surface of the history of both the man and the company. Hemmings Motor Daily takes the legend and looks deeper in a fantastic piece on this anniversary of the birth of the man who would dare go against the Prancing Horse.
