Who said Lamborghini's were just for speed?

You are correct.
Also a high mobility off road vehicle, the Cheetah, or the Cheater, as we called it at FMC because it was a rip-off (more like a direct copy) of the FMC designed XR311. Some disgruntled ex-FMC employees ran off with the design and sold it to Lambo. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lamborghini_Cheetah

I've seen their industrial hydraulic equipment in Oz too. Apparently the only reason he got into building supercars is because Enzo didn't like a tractor manufacturer telling him how to fix a problematic Ferrari diff.

Lamborghini is never for speed, it is for people to show each other they got too much money, and the stupidity to wrap around a tree when they loss control.

You can buy tractors with the Ferrari name on them also but I don't think they are directly related to the horse badge. lamborghini's website: http://www.lamborghini-tractors.com
I'm pretty sure that Lamborghini first made tractors, then cars. Has the tractor division been sold off? Probably so, but Lamborghini has been bought, sold and merged a few times also. Remember when Lamborghini was owned by Chrysler? Times change.

If you look at the third pic posted in this thread it explains what you just posted in a little more detail. Ferrari financed his race team with street cars and made sure the "who's who" were "seen" in them. He really had no interest in car production and sold production to Fiat a long time ago. Lamborghini decided he wanted to make street cars and adopted the same seen/scene approach.
