Lamborghini was founded in 1963 by the company's namesake, Italian manufacturer Ferruccio Lamborghini. Lamborghini was looking to create a car that was designed for high speeds and long distance driving. The company released its first line of vehicles in the mid-1960s and the company grew rapidly until the worldwide financial downturn of 1973. Lamborghini changed ownership several times until it was purchased by brothers Jean-Claude and Patrick Mimran in 1980. The Mimran brothers worked to expand the brand, and new vehicles were released, such as the Countach, the Jalpa sports car and the LM002 high-performance off-road vehicle.
In 1987, the Mimran brothers sold Lamborghini to the Chrysler Corporation, who replaced the Countach with the Diablo and discontinued the Jalpa and the LM002. Lamborghini was sold to Indonesian group V'Power Corporation and Malaysian investment group Mycom Setdco in 1994, and in 1998, Lamborghini found its home in the Volkswagen Group. Volkswagen placed Lamborghini under their Audi division, where it still lives today.
Today, Lamborghini boasts high-performing, futuristic vehicles that provide a thrilling user experiences. Lamborghini has three models on the market today, although they are often creating custom and limited edition vehicles as well.
