The Lamborghini story started in the Second World War. The founder of the company, Ferruccio Lamborghini, did not want to be sent to the front. So he managed to destroy all the tank operation manuals. He had memorized all the information so that he would be able to do the maintenance on them. Of course, he was then practically the only one (or almost the only one) who was capable of efficiently repairing the vehicles and he spent the entire war in a garage and not on the front lines!
