Tractor Turned Sculpture
Lamborghini Centenario Trattore

2016 was a significant year for Lamborghini as its founder Ferruccio Lamborghini would have been 100 years old if he didn’t pass away back in 1993. The limited-edition Lamborghini Centenario was built to honour the milestone, with only 20 coupés and 20 roadsters available. In the same year, artist Adler Capelli created the Lamborghini Centenario Trattore sculpture using original Lamborghini tractors from the 1960s. One of the five examples is currently waiting for its new owner.

Ferruccio Lamborghini founded Lamborghini Trattori in 1948 with the business focused on designing and building agricultural tractors, so it makes perfect sense for Adler Capelli to pay tribute to the roots of the automaker. The Lamborghini Centenario Trattore shown here is the fourth example out of five sculptures created, featuring a 2.2-litre three-cylinder diesel engine that outputs 36.5 hp, while the body is a mix of DLA 35 and 2R DT models.

The metal components of the tractor are left naked in order to achieve a patina effect as time passes. Although the current condition of the Lamborghini Centenario Trattore hasn’t been divulged, when it was first created it was meant to be fully functional, and had 500 km on its clock.

The sculpture is listed by Cartech Switzerland on Classic Driver at CHF 480 000.
