Lamborghini Crawler Tractors Prove Supercar Makers Could Build Tanks

You probably know how the Lamborghini supercar company was born. An Italian fellow didn't like his Ferrari; Enzo told him to go away; the tractor builder decided to make his own supercar. The world is a much better place with Raging Bulls on our roads, but the same badge also goes on another kind of animal.

We assure you that this isn't some bad photoshop joke. Lamborghini has a full range of tractors, and part of that range is made up of crawlers.

These machines are designed to cope with loose traction conditions, such as a muddy field or the steel incline of a vineyard. With the supercar division planning to launch a production SUV in 2017, we can only imagine how a Lamborghini tank would look.

And why not build a supercar tank? You take it to a field, go fully sideways at 100 miles per hour while shooting your battle cannon and return home a happier man. Heck, they can make it half-SUV and half-tank, like those German half-tracks that invaded Poland.

The crawler range is made up of three different models, the basic CV 80 unit, CF 90 and 100 mid-grade models and C SIX 110. What's under the bonnet? Only a 4-liter Euro 3 turbo engine with an "SDF high-pressure injection system (one of the most advanced in existence today), Powercore air filtration system and programmable engine speed function."

The C 100 in the photo above even has its own roll cage, though it's probably there to protect the driver from falling trees, not add body stiffness for high-speed cornering.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
