The Lamborghini and Monteverdi marques were both born out of a disagreement with the notoriously difficult Enzo Ferrari. Like Ferruccio Lamborghini, Peter Monteverdi had humble beginnings, getting his hands dirty with tractors but eventually rising to take on the most prestigious sports car manufacturer of the time. Peter Monteverdi was born in Binningen, Switzerland in 1934 and started his automotive career as an apprentice mechanic with tractor manufacturer Vevey. He then went on to finish his training at the Swiss commercial vehicle manufacturer Saurer in Arbon.
