....When Lamborghini discovered that the clutch on his Ferrari was broken, and actually was the same clutch that he used on his tractors, Lamborghini went to Ferrari and asked for a better replacement. Ferrari responded, saying that he was just a tractor maker, and could not know anything about sports cars. Lamborghini decided to pursue an automobile manufacturing venture with the goal of bringing to life his vision of a perfect grand tourer.
Yes. Although it was my understanding that Ferrari's response was taken somewhat as an insult. Ferruccio Lamborghini decided to build a better car than Ferrari had offered at the time; basically he was defending his pride.
