Ferruccio Lamborghini was already a successful businessman when, in 1963, he decided to found a car company, named after himself. He chose Sant'Agata Bolognese as the location and recruited a variety of famous and capable engineers to design his cars, including Bizzarrini, Dallara and Stanzani. The first car, the 350GT, entered production in 1964 and combined a Bizzarrini developed quad-cam V12 with a Dallara developed chassis. As might be guessed, this combination proved very effective, and it remained in production until 1968 (albeit in revised 400GT form from 1966).
More ground breaking was the 1966 release of the Miura, which used a transversely mounted V12 behind the occupants. With a Bertone designed two seat bodyshell (actually by Gandini and Giugiaro whilst working there), the Miura proved a great success and continued until 1973 when it was replaced by the equally famous Countach. In the meantime, the Islero had replaced the 400GT in 1968 as the companies 2+2 coupe, whilst in the same year the Espada had introduced genuine four-seater capacity to the marque. 1970 saw the Islero replaced by the similar Jarama whilst two years later the V8 Urraco entered another market segment, that of the 'small' supercar.
Also in 1972 Lamborghini sold 51% of his company to a Swiss businessman, with the remaining 49% going to another Swiss in 1974. The latter year saw the Countach revealed in production form complete with 4-litre mid-mounted V12 and brutal, angular styling. Production continued until 1988 by which time the engine had been increased to 5-litres. The companies problems did not go away, however, and in 1978 they went into receivership. Three years later the Mimram brothers took control and began to revitalise the marque. First came the Jalpa, a restyled and heavily modified Urraco, then more potent Countachs and then, in 1982, the LM002. The latter was a Countach engined four wheel drive off-road jeep-like

    867722 ENG 30101 October 17, 2014 Chekov categorized his famous play The Cherry Orchard as a comedy. However, both Lyubov’s sense of overwhelming emptiness after losing the cherry orchard and Lopakhin’s naked hysteria after buying the orchard gave the readers a sense of bitterness. By categorizing it as a comedy, Chekov was clearly indicating something deeper. By focusing on the relationships between the characters and the cherry orchard and the symbolisms of the cherry orchard, I hope to provide…

    For hundreds of years, a regrettably large number of people have struggled to gain rights for oppressed minorities. Every so often, someone succeeds. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Mohandas K. Gandhi were two of these successful individuals. Specifically, “Letter from Birmingham City Jail,” by Dr. King and Bhikhu Parekh’s “Gandhi: A Very Short Introduction” concisely illustrate the philosophies of these prominent civil rights leaders. Many of their principles also draw parallels to Henry David Thoreau’s…
