Agricultural equipment isn't something we usually cover here at Luxist, but for every rule there's an exception. With aspiring designers rendering everything from concept cars and motorbikes to high-heeled shoes in the Lamborghini image, one designer thought it was about time the famed Italian sportscar-maker go back to its roots. The company's founder Ferruccio Lamborghini started out making tractors, and only got into the sportscar business after a notorious encounter with arch-rival Enzo Ferrari left insulted and defiant. Decades of exotic supercars later, Canadian designer Jason Battersby dreamed up the concept you see here. Called the Toro, it brings Lamborghini back to its source, blending themes from the company's latest sportscars with its agricultural roots. Of course this is just a design exercise, so don't get visions of tilling the fields at some Tuscan villa at breakneck speeds just yet. But it is a compelling vision.
