When the word Lamborghini is said, it brings to mind an exotic, sleek Italian super-fast racing machine. They are extortionately expensive, both to buy and to run, and most people have only had a glimpse of one through media outlets. This car is definitely a status symbol and only the elite can afford to buy and maintain one. Given all that, people are still fascinated by this dream machine and while they cannot afford to own or even drive one, seeing a Lamborghini driving by is poetry in motion.Your vehicle may not be an expensive Italian import but it is your pride and joy. To keep your vehicle, no matter what it is, in mint condition you should always protect it with a car cover when not in use. Custom car covers are designed to fit your exact model of vehicle and conforms to the body to protect the exterior.When Ferruccio Lamborghini decided to start building cars he already had two factories. One of them produced air conditioners and the other tractors. He wanted to take on Ferrari’s cars because he felt they were too noisy and plain looking. He envisioned a car that was powerful and fast with a luxurious interior to appeal to the elite who had money to spend and were concerned about looks and luxury.In 1963, his first dream car, the 350 GTV, was introduced at the Turin Auto Show. In 1966, the Lamborghini Miura was produced.Â 1968 was when he produced the Lamborghini Espada 400 GT and it was a major hit over the next ten years. The wealthy playboy’s in the 1960’s preferred the brightly colored Lamborghini Miura and they could be found parked in major international airports and hotel resorts around the wealthy parts of the world frequented by the jet set.The 1970’s were a dark period for the Lamborghini Company. The company was suffering, just like all the other automakers, with the oil and economic crisis of the 1970s. Ferruccio sold most of his holding to Georges Henri Rossetti, a wealthy Swiss car enthusiast. The company continued, but without its founder it lost some of its direction and creativity.The company went downhill from there until it was sold to Patrick and Jean Claude Mimran in 1980. The company than went on to be owned by Chrysler until in 1998, Audi stepped in and bought the company. It introduced the Murcielago and the car dubbed the “baby Lamborghini”,Â the Gallardo.Recently the company has introduced the Lamborghini Reventon that is based on the Murcielago sports car. Its design was inspired by the F22 Raptor fighter jet. It is an open top car that has an aggressive wedge shape. The interior of exclusive vehicle reminds you of a modern plane cockpit.It has a V12 engine that can go from zero to sixty two miles per hour in 3.4 seconds. It has a top speed of 205 mph. The Reventon is available in only one color and that was specially created for this powerful car.You may never own a Lamborghini, but you can always dream about having one. Any car is a major investment and you want to do everything you can to keep it in good running condition and looking sharp. By washing it often and using a car cover when not in use, you will have a car that you are proud to be seen in for years to come.
