The Italians are passionate about automobiles, which can be seen in how some of the most popular brands started. Alfa Romeo was among the first, and which inspired Enzo Ferrari to create the iconic Ferrari. Legend has it that Enzo Ferrari did not take criticism from a wealthy farmer well and he gave a nasty reply. The farmer, Lamborghini, decided to give a piece of his mind by establishing his supercar brand.
High-performance vehicles are in the fabric of Italian culture, which is one reason they are so popular. Here are more reasons.
The Italian designers and engineers have excelled in project practicality, delivery, reliability, and rust prevention – skills developed though years of commitment to excellence. All the best Italian automobiles are moody but excellent, just like their creators.
For example, Lamborghini was an extension of its creator’s personality, most definitely. Maserati was born out of a passion for racing by two brothers.
Design and Styling
Everyone knows Italian supercars are some of the most beautiful, thanks to the country’s long tradition of design. Pininfarina, for example, is a world-renowned Italian styling company in Cambiano. The company has over eight decades of designing the likes of Ferrari, Maserati, Volvo, Ford, and Alfa Romeo.
