Lamborghini Stamp

By: Andrew Christian

The Italian postal service will issue a commemorative stamp dedicated to the legendary Lamborghini sportscar and the first stamps will be sold in the car's home town of Sant'Agata Bolognese, near Bologna.

The 85-euro-cent stamp will feature the Lamborghini logo with its golden bull on a black shield in a shape which recalls the badge on the nose of carmaker's classic Lamborghini Miura model, which was produced from 1966 to 1973.

The issuing of the stamp is part of the initiative by the postal service to celebrate Italy's best known products and achievements.

Lamborghini was founded in 1963 by the tractor manufacturer Ferruccio Lamborghini and quickly became one of the main rivals to Ferrari.

Although still considered a unique Italian sportscar, the Lamborghini has had a number of foreign owners in the past 30 years, including Chrysler, and is currently owned by Volkswagen subsidiary Audi. However,it is still built outside Bologna.[Source 4wheelsblog.com]
