Lamborghini Trattori was established in 1948. Using parts purchased from the ARAR (Azienda Recupero Alienazione Residuati) Lamborghini created the first Carioca tractors. The Carioca tractors used military surplus engines, gearboxes and differentials. His model L33 of 1952 incorporated a British Morris 3.5 litre 6 cylinder diesel engine and was the first tractor manufactured entirely by Lamborghini (other than the use of the Morris engine).

Lamborghini invented a fuel atomizer which enabled a diesel engine to be started using petrol/gasoline, and then switched over to using inexpensive diesel distillate. His innovations made his tractors competitive with the established major manufacturers such as Fiat, Landini, and Motomeccanica and so his sales grew progressively from a tractor per month, to a tractor per week, to making 45-60 tractors per day in the 1960’s in a business employing over 400.

The Lamborghini 1R tractor began production in 1961 and remained so until 1965. So it was a mainstream product at the time Ferruccio Lamborghini had his famous argument with Enzo Ferrari as to the fact that the Ferrari 250GT that Lamborghini was driving was found to be fitted with the same type of clutch as some of his tractors. Lamborghini was annoyed and in his annoyance determined to get into the luxury car manufacturing business. The result of this was the creation of what many consider to be the most beautiful Lamborghini ever created, the Lamborghini 350GT.  The Lamborghini 1R was made, not with a DOHC V12 engine, but a humble two cylinder air cooled diesel. The two cylinder air cooled Lamborghini diesel engine of the 1R was of 1,462cc capacity and produced 26hp. Early versions featured a three speed all synchromesh gearbox with a two speed transfer case for high and low range, giving six gears in all. Later models received a four speed gearbox and the engine power was raised to 32hp @ 1,500rpm. The rear brakes were hydraulic.
