The world-famous super sports car brand Lamborghini has an emblem with a bullfighting design on its body.
In this article, we’d like to share with you the origin of the emblem that represents Lamborghini.
It is said that the emblem of Lamborghini with the design of a fierce bull is the mark of the company that was originally designed by Ferruccio Lamborghini, the founder who was a farmer and bought a Ferrari, but he was dissatisfied with the many breakdowns and so on, and started to make a supercar by himself in response to the “prancing horse” of Ferrari.
Incidentally, it is famous that the reason is that Ferruccio Lamborghini had a dispute with Enzo Ferrari, but in fact, there is a theory that the relationship was good after the success of Lamborghini, so it may be a kind of urban legend story though the truth is unknown.
By the way, it seems to be certain that Lamborghini considered Ferrari as a rival because it is stated that Ferruccio Lamborghini, who was successful in the predecessor business, said “I want to make a super sports car that will compete with Ferrari” in the official view of Lamborghini.

The company’s emblem is not the only bullfighting motif, but many of the super sports cars launched in the past and present have also been named after bulls, with “Huracán” being named after the Spanish fighting bulls that competed in the Alicante games in August 1879 The Gallardo, the predecessor of the Gallardo, was named after an 18th-century Spanish bull-fighter, and the flagship model, the Aventador, was named after a bull that had been active in the bullring in Spain since October 1993, and many of its models are associated with bullfighting.
It’s likely that we’ll see more new Lamborghini models named after bulls in the future.
