PLEASE Enlarge these ----- the price tag you'd never guess: 295 thousand Swiss Francs (=295000 dollahs!); cheap compared to the new Lotus electro - enjoy and I hope for some comments sandy (i am pretty sure you'll like these, even though its not Lotus oriented)

i guess all of us here (elannet) know also the porsche tractors and back in the early 80s i worked with a chap called eberhard schullz (= Isdera cars/C111 replica) who drove a 4cyl. 904 porsche which i could've purchased for 40000DM! ----- these are now worth way over a MIO:! sandy PS the shared Lamborghini shows a completely different product at a price for the deep pocketed and as we see not meant for pulling a plow!!

Lambo still makes tractors. I came across this when hiking in the Dolomites in Italy. Out in the middle of no-where....

I saw a very nice Porsche tractor in a collection in Sri Lanka a couple of years ago.
Quite a surprise as at the time I didn't realise they made them.

Wikipedia has a list of former tractor manufacturers https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of ... ufacturers

Those that stand out are MacLaren, Alfa Romeo, Haas, Lister,

I don’t notice any Russian or Eastern Bloc manufacturers in the list, Shirley Skoda, Volga, Wartburg Moskvich and Zil, must have made a stump puller or two?
Kindest regards

I have always loved tractors. I have a LOMBARDINI Westwood, it is the most fun a chap could have (Apart from the elan of course).
