1964 1R model tractor made by supercar manufacturer Lamborghini goes on sale ...

Sports car enthusiasts could get their hands on a Lamborghini for just £15,000, if they're happy to drive a tractor. 

One of the rare bright orange and blue Lambo 1R model tractors was up for auction and expected to fetch up a minimum of £15K, with the auction house describing it as 'the most affordable route to Lamborghini ownership'. 

The 1964 model, manufactured by one of the most expensive car brands in the world, was used to tend to land before it was lovingly restored at an Italian garage in 2016, Daily Star Sunday reports. 

After being left unloved for several years Garage 961 gave the tractor a much-needed face lift - removing grime and years of old paintwork and returning it to its original colours, the listing on Car and Classic explained.
