Mention Lamborghini and most enthusiasts will conjure up images of a Miura or Countach or maybe the more contemporary Gallardo or Hurrican, but the fact is Ferruccio Lamborghini's successful tractor empire preceded his supercar one by no less than 15 years, and it was reputedly only an argument with Enzo Ferrari over a faulty clutch in his Ferrari 250 GT that prompted Signore Lamborghini to embrace cars as well as farm vehicles.

The perfect stable mate for your Gallardo is surely therefore this gorgeous 1961 2R FL3. Finished in the strident livery of Blue and Orange, it is powered by a 36bhp three-cylinder engine of 2193cc and comes complete with PTO and pick up hitch, as well as its Italian log book and NOVA declaration. This splendid-looking beast has only just emerged from a thorough 'nut-and-bolt' restoration that was performed by renowned Italian vehicle specialists Ermes & Nicola Formilan. Sensational!
