Lamborghini has been Certified a Top Company to Work For
Lamborghini has been certified as a top employer in Italy. The company that makes some wild supercars sounds like a very cool place because of the high performance cars. But the certification lets potential employees know that the work environment itself is a very good one.
So, we want to know if you were given the chance to move to Italy, would you like to work for Lamborghini? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
In Italy there are two main sports car makers, they at Ferrari and Lamborghini (before you head to the comments, I realize that Alfa Romeo and Maserati also make spots cars). So, to own something other than a prancing horse or raging bull in Italy may seem like sacrilege. Of all things to own a German sports car is unthinkable.
But for Donato Maniscalco a Porsche 911 was a dream car since he was 10 years old. In this video the Italian sports car enthusiasts talks about what he likes about owning an early 911. His car is driven, which is common for 911s, but could imagine a Ferrari of the period being driven more than on weekends? That is what is beautiful about Porsches, they can be enjoyed often and yet you get performance that can rival Italian sports cars.
Check out the video and then let us know what you think of Donato’s car in the comments.
If you have been following this blog for the last little bit, then you already know that this year is the 50th Anniversary of the Porsche 911. There are a number of celebrations planned for the legendary rear-engined sports car that has become the performance standard that other cars are measured by. Events to celebrate this anniversary are set throughout the world and Italy is no exception.
This video shows highlights of the 911 tour of Italy. The video gives a sense of all the great cars that made it to the event and the festivities surrounding the celebration. The tour took drivers throughout the Italian countryside, driving some great roads. I’m sure for some in the country seeing so many German sports cars was odd with Lamborghini and Ferrari being the prides of the country. However, for those who want great performance and dependability the Porsche 911 is a much better choice than an Italian Exotic.
