Why Are Lamborghini Names Spanish?


Lamborghini is an Italian company but the founder Ferruccio Lamborghini was born in the small town of Renazzo di Cento in Emilia-Romagna Italy.

When he founded the company in 1963 he named it after his favorite bull breed—the Lamborghini Miura. Over the years all of Lamborghini’s models have borne Spanish names.

The reason is a bit of a mystery; some say Lamborghini chose Spanish names because they sounded more exotic to English speakers while others say that he simply liked the way they sounded.

Whatever the reason may be it’s a tradition that has continued to this day.
