OriginEdit

Ferruccio Elio Arturo Lamborghini (1916 - 1993) was an Italian industrialist who started with tractors before eventually turning his business into high-end sports cars. In 1947, Lamborghini, returning from the war, saw the need for agricultural and industrial revitalization. Using parts from abandoned military vehicles he built his first tractors. These tractors were based on the six-cylinder petrol engines of Morris trucks. However petrol (in Italy at least) was prohibitively-priced. Lamborghini augmented the engines with a fuel atomizer of his own creation which allowed diesel fuel to be used instead.

One hobby constant across his years of building was a fascination with a Spanish import: bullfighting. Impressed with the power of Miura bulls, he ensured the beast would be emblazoned on every model as their symbol of ferocity. More than 10 different models are named after ranchers, breeds and matadors alike.

EffectsEdit

Turns normal diesel into the more expensive petrol. Leads to better overall performance but requires more maintenance to keep at a higher standard.

Sporadically gives the attributes normally associated with bulls. Physical changes like cloven feet, gnarled horns or hefty shoulders just appear without warning. Increased anger towards anything moving is common throughout, which makes driving difficult.
