If you live anywhere in the civilized world. You probably know what a car is. A car is defined as “a wheeled vehicle.” Since the invention of the car, there have been many people who are enamored by them. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and taste and appreciation for different cars, varies.

That being said, a sports car is in a class all its own. They really shouldn’t even be called cars. They are definitely so much more than just “a wheeled vehicle.” Most sports cars are exquisitely engineered, high tech machines. They are not built for transportation. They are built for speed and status.

Ferraris and Lamborghinis were two Italian Supercars that became household names in the 20th century. They are both synonymous with wealth, luxury, and speed. The horse and bull have long been rivals, ever since two Italian men from Emilia-Romagna had a clash of egos.

All of that being said, most car enthusiasts out there know the difference between makes and models. Everybody has their favorite. However, there are so many manufacturers out there that it is nearly impossible to know it all.

Of the sports car genre, Ferrari and Lamborghini are among the names that most people recognize. The average person will most likely never have the opportunity to get behind the wheel of one of these babies, but many would love to.

Like any industry, car dealers experience a rivalry within their industry. They are always trying to one-up each other to gain the favour of the consumer. Ferrari and Lamborghini are two dealers with an epic and historic rivalry; much like the Hatfield's and the McCoy's. That rivalry is still alive today.
