Lamborghini Nitro tractor gets the work done in hypercar style

farm-tech-8

The new Lamborghini Nitro tractor pushes Italian style, giving the utility of the tractor that extra Lamborghini edge. This is no hypercar, however, with engines topping out at 130 horsepower.

It’s the tractor you don’t want to get dirty.

Today, the name may evoke images of a fast-racing Gallardo, but Lamborghini’s beginnings were about as far from the race track as possible.

Lamborghini Trattori, the tractor-manufacturing arm of the hypercar maker, shows of its latest farm tool. The 2013 Lamborghini Nitro combines style with the rugged functionality, looking just as ready to roll out onto the moon as it does onto the construction site.

With exterior styling designed by Giugiaro Design, the Nitro looks undeniably slick with its shiny white body. LED headlights, a standard in the hypercar world, make their way into this super tractor, as well as a high-tech cabin that looks to be inspired in equal parts by a race car and an airplane. And, yes, “Lamborghini” is emblazoned on the driver’s seat headrest, just in case anyone forgets.

s with any Lamborghini, form and function come hand-in-hand. The Nitro’s honeycomb grille is seriously eye-catching, while it also helps to keep the tractor’s 3.6-liter DEUTZ engine running cool and efficient.

The Nitro’s DEUTZ engine will be available in four power levels ranging from 100 to 130 horsepower while buyers will be able to also pick between mechanical, Powershift, and variable ratio transmissions.

Lamborghini has not yet announced the price for the 2013 Nitro.
