History of Sports Cars
The basis for the sports car is traced to the early 20th century touring cars and roadsters.
The first sports cars are considered to be the 3 litre 1910 Prince Henry Vauxhall 20 hp and the 27/80PS Austro-Daimler designed by Ferdinand Porsche.
Two companies would offer the first really reliable sports cars: Austin with the Seven and Morris Garages (MG) with the Midget.
Lamborghini is an Italian car manufacturer founded by Ferruccio Lamborghini.
