As successful as today, Lamborghini has been bankrupt and sold to many times.

Founded in 1963, Lamborghini is owned by Ferruccio Lamborghini founder until 1974. After many years of success, sales began to decline, especially after the economic downturn and the mine-rich crisis in 1973.

Ferruccio decided to retire and sell the company to George-Henri Rossetti and Rene Leimer in 1974. In 1978, Lamborghini went bankrupt, then two years later, under the management of Jean-Claude and Patrick Mimran.

Jean-Claude and Patrick Mimran bought all of Lamborghini in 1984 and sold it to Chrysler in 1987. The US group retained the company until 1994 and sold it to investment group Mycom Setdco (Malaysia) and V’Power Corporation (Indonesia).

In 1998, Lamborghini was once again sold to the Volkswagen Group, and was assigned to the Audi division.

Who is the Volkswagen Automotive Group?

Volkswagen Group, also known as Volkswagen AG (VAG) is a German multinational automobile manufacturer based in Wolfsburg (Germany).

Volkswagen Group is a large and long-standing German corporation. Founded in 1937 as the Volkswagen company, the company designed the Beetle emblem. VW became a corporation in the 1960s after acquiring Auto Union and NSU. These two parts merged to form Audi today.

VAG continued to buy controlling shares of Seat and Skoda in 1994. In 1998, Volkswagen purchased three luxury brands Bentley, Bugatti, and Lamborghini. In 2012, Volkswagen Group became the parent company of Porsche.

In the hands of Volkswagen Group, there are currently 15 car brands and subsidiaries. The German corporation also owns Ducati, MAN, and Scania. Bankruptcy brands such as Auto Union, Horch, NSU, Wanderer, and DKW used to belong to the Volkswagen Group.

Who owns a Lamborghini stake?

Individuals and groups that own the Volkswagen Group also own Lamborghini shares. Shareholders of VW Group include Porsche Automobil Holding SE (30.8%), foreign-invested companies (25.2%), Qatar Holding LLC (14.6%), State of Lower Saxony (11.8 %), private shareholders (15.1%) and German investment institutions (2.5%).

Regarding voting rights, Porsche Automobil Holding SE controls 53.1%, State of Lower Saxony – 20%, Qatar Holding LLC – 17%, and other investors – the remaining 9.9%.

Although Audi controls Lamborghini, the brand is actually part of the parent group Volkswagen Group. Lamborghini itself controls the smaller brands, including Ducati, Italdesign Giugiaro, and MML S.p.A. (Motori Marini Lamborghini).

On August 28, 1937, Toyota Motor Corporation was officially born. This ushered in an era of brilliant success in the automotive industry and has since made Japan‘s name proud.

CafeBiz would like to introduce the series of articles about “The richest clans in world history”. The series will be posted regularly every Friday. In this issue, we would like to introduce to readers the story of Toyoda – the family behind the giant automobile empire Toyota.

The founder of Toyota, Sakichi Toyoda, was born into a poor carpenter family in a rural area near Nagoya, Japan. He grew up and took his father’s apprenticeship, becoming a carpenter with the specialty of making wooden looms. By being eager to learn and diligent, he later created an entirely new, improved weaving machine from the previous wooden one.

Not only a talented craftsman, Toyoda has proved to be a creative and entrepreneurial entrepreneur from the outset. When he created this weaving machine, he quickly registered the patent and then mass produced it for sale.

On one visit to the US to find out information about the project of automatic looms that he was studying, Sakichi Toyoda happened to realize that cars had appeared in the US quite a lot but Japan did not have them yet. Subsequently. When there was information that Japan had to import 800 Ford cars, Sakichi Toyoda’s national pride increased.

In early 1930, each production line of tires, chassis and car engine was completed by the Toyoda family.

Toyota has always been one of the leading brands in the world, valued at tens of billions of dollars. At the same time, Toyota owns 522 subsidiaries across the planet. It is also one of the three largest car companies in the world, “consolidated vehicle sales reached 8,971,864 units”.

As a productive research expert who has been following Toyota’s every step, James Womack said: “Whether Akio becomes Toyota’s leader depends on many other factors, not because of the Toyoda family. “

Akio has the same starting point as any other Toyota employee. In 1984, he asked his father if he should go to work for Toyota and received an astonishing reply: “Nobody wants to be your boss. Toyota does not need children. If you want to work here, start like everyone else, ”starting from an apprenticeship position. Since then, the Toyota boat has remained steadfast.

Popular sports car launched with a new look, 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine with 710 horsepower.

Launched at the Goodwood Festival of Speed ​​2018, Nissan GT-R50 received much attention. Italdesign – one of VinFast’s design partners, cooperates with Nissan to create sports cars limited to 50 units worldwide. In particular, the car was announced with the 50th anniversary of the birth of Italdesign and GT-R.

GT-R50 is based on GT-R Nismo and Italdesign has designed more details that make the car’s exterior different from its predecessor. The head of the car is angled, slim LED headlights make the car more aggressive and sporty. The rear of the car retains four round taillights, equipped with a wing that can lift and lower at speed and the wind splitter under the rear bumper to increase aerodynamics.

Vehicles equipped with the 3.8-liter V6 twin-turbo engine of the GT-R R35 Nismo GT3, but tuned to 710 horsepower and 780 Nm of torque. It comes with a brand new 6-speed dual clutch transmission.

Bob Laishley, director of Nissan’s global sports car division, said: “Our customers have enjoyed the personalized experience provided by Italdesign. They say the GT-R50 is a great model and I can say that every car will definitely be an independent masterpiece”.

In addition to the personalized program provided by Italdesign, owners of 50 cars can personalize the colors of the exterior and interior as they like. The Nissan GT-R50 costs $ 1.12 million, 5 times more expensive than the GT-R Nismo.

FIA and F1 have been preparing for more than two years to launch a new model, which is considered to be more competitive on the track. In addition, a series of new regulations, the most important of which are the financial limits, were detailed in the meeting on October 31.

The most important change in the new model is at the front. The front spoiler, designed perpendicularly on both sides in previous seasons, has been tapered and streamlined. Its two ends will carry a triangular metal plate, the tip pointed upwards.

In addition, the new design of the F1 car removed some details from the engine box and revised the middle part of the rear spoiler. This is an early model for the 2021 season, providing an initial look for fans. The design of each racing team will rely on this model to create their car and each vehicle will not be exactly like the one offered by FIA.

In the minds of many people, electric cars are the means of the far future, not suitable for the present. However, the development of battery technology will help electric vehicles soon become universal. The common misconceptions about electric vehicles are listed by the firms below.

According to statistics of the US Department of Transportation, the average vehicle user in this country runs about 64 km / day. Meanwhile, most electric cars are capable of running twice as long before having to charge.

With a moderate-priced electric vehicle like the Nissan Leaf, the vehicle’s mileage can be about 240 km or an electric Hyundai Kona can travel a distance of 412 km, meaning users can drive a few days.

Meanwhile, many high-end electric cars like the Tesla Model 3 can move continuously over a distance of about 500 km for a charge. The American automaker said that the open-road electric car launched in 2020 can also run continuously nearly 1,000 km with a full charge.

In fact, electric cars are often faster than cars powered by internal combustion engines of the same capacity. Because electric vehicles transmit 100% of the torque generated to drive, do not lose through other parts.

When the operator stepped on the accelerator pedal, the car immediately accelerated without any delay. A Tesla Model S can accelerate 0-100 km / h in about 2.5 seconds, equivalent to many famous sports cars.

The cost of battery packs is likely to decline sharply in the coming years, when the cost of electric cars is significantly reduced. In many places in the United States, people who buy electric vehicles get a refund of certain amounts, depending on their income level.

Electric cars often have a small market share, so organizations in the US often do not perform safety tests. However, those vehicles that have done crash tests have achieved good results.

In addition, concerns about battery burn, explosion due to collision are all exaggerated news. In recent studies conducted by the National Highway Safety Agency, the frequency of fire and explosion of battery systems of electric cars is equal or lower than that of traditional cars.

The smallest car in the world Peel Trident also known as “bubble car”. This 3-wheel vehicle is one of 45 vehicles manufactured by Peel Engineering in 2 years.

Since 2014, this model has belonged to an American car collector. In 1964, the Trident model with only 79 cm wide seats, 2 seats ever debuted at the British motor show.

According to the manufacturer’s ad, the car has “car comfort at the expense of scooters”. Peel Engineering, until 2011, has produced both the P50 and Peel Trident as manual assemblies on orders with either petrol or electric engines.

The model mentioned in this article is actually the second model of Peel Engineering. The car was developed from the first product called Peel P50. This model was born in 1965 with a unique design of only 3 wheels.

The car is less than 1 meter wide and 1.8 meters long. The appearance of the car makes many people surprised and think of a Peel Trident ball, with a slender appearance like a car coming out of animated movies.

The powertrain used by the micro-car called the “bubble” Peel Trident uses a 49cc engine, producing 4.2 horsepower. This engine helps the car reach a maximum speed of 61 km / h, compared to the current cars, this number is quite serious.

Chiêm ngưỡng chiếc ô tô nhỏ nhất thế giới Peel Trident

However, the consolation is the fuel economy of the super-saving car, only 2.8 liters / 100 km. The tiny car Peel Trident only uses a 3-speed gearbox, without reverse gear like the P50 model. In addition, the small space with 2 seats and a convertible-style convertible top cum the door so the driver can push the car to the park when needed.

The Peel Trident possesses many advantages such as easily wriggling and finding parking, does not take much time to wash the car, change the tires simply and save fuel … However, the car is not lacking drawbacks, yes can not mention as inappropriate for tall people, quite struggling to carry 2 people.

In addition, the engine has a capacity of only 49cc but the noise is quite loud, the suspension is simple and the tires are too small, so the car is rated as unsafe. This model is only suitable for moving on flat roads in the city due to the 3-wheel structure so it is easy to overturn when traveling on bumpy roads.

The current A-class vehicle segment is a fierce battleground in terms of both product and price.

In particular, the strongest competition is Hyundai Grand i10, Toyota Wigo and Kia Morning. Two other small cars, Honda Brio and VinFast Fadil, have high prices in the segment and there seems to be no sign of wanting to race for price reduction. These are also the 2 latest models in the segment.

Toyota Wigo and Kia Morning offer a discount, giving customers a discount. In fact, Morning is a rare model in the segment that has been continuously discounted since the beginning of the year.

About 4 months ago, Morning showed a clear decrease in sales. In October 2019, Morning sales were 573 units, still ranked above Toyota Wigo with 517 units sold. The Toyota model is rated as the most practical interior in the segment. Wigo premium version is discounted $1500, the standard version $500 off. Even the most popular car in the segment, the Hyundai Grand i10, also reduced prices this time. The i10 is lower than its competitors, at only $500. Hyundai Grand i10 is still the car with the highest sales in the A-segment segment with an average of more than 1,000 vehicles per month. Last October, Hyundai sold 1,705 Grand i10 cars.

Origin imported as Toyota Wigo, Mitsubishi Mirage or Suzuki Celerio but the price of Honda Brio is quite high. The standard version costs $18,000 while all cars in the A-segment are priced below this.

Suzuki Celerio also does not offer discounts, instead offering customer support of $ 700 including interest and road maintenance fees. In the race of sales, Celerio along with Mitsubishi Mirage are always at the bottom of the table despite the cheapest price today.

If the market fluctuates, this interest rate increases more than 10.5%, VinFast will pay the difference, users only have to pay a fixed rate of 10.5% per year. Unlike the two Lux models, Fadil does not raise prices according to the roadmap, the standard version of Fadil uses an automatic transmission like Honda Brio.

It can be seen that the A-class car segment in 2019 is very exciting with all different prices, suitable to each financial condition as well as the needs of customers.

Henry Ford is the founder of the globally renowned Ford car company. He himself wrote the history of Ford and revolutionized the modern automobile industry. From a man who is considered to be eccentric, crazy and ignorant of cars, Henry Ford has become a man respected and respected by the people of the world.

In addition, Henry Ford boldly declared: “I will make a car for the majority of people” and put forward a business philosophy that economists at that time were very difficult to absorb.

Companies need to be concerned about making sure that their workers can buy the products they produce. In other words, employers need to play a role in promoting product consumption. For a business to grow sustainably, reducing working hours and increasing salaries for employees is even an effective way to cut production costs.

If cars are mass-produced products primarily for the American people in general, not for the wealthy, Ford workers can afford to buy the products that they have worked hard for day.

However, this change of Henry Ford gave rise to many other problems. He was fiercely opposed by his colleagues when he paid a salary that was too favorable to the market. They say this action has “put the entire US automobile industry in jeopardy”.

Even now, the Wall Street Journal was ironic: Because Ford did not pay attention to the service life of the service he provided, he did not obey the rules of business stated in the Bible, so he would not gain anything. The newspaper also warned that action could lead him to hell.

That proves Henry Ford right. Paying double to workers did not kill Ford as many warn, but also doubled the company’s profits and sales continued to boom. Henry Ford once said: “Increasing double salaries for employees and reducing working hours is one of the most cost effective moves we have ever made.”

After 20 years, Ford sold 17 million Model Ts, accounting for nearly half of all cars produced in the world during that time. The car industry has become the fulcrum for a new economy. It facilitates mobility, expands the reach of urban areas, and provides opportunities for suburban residents to enter the city for work.

In the ranking list of the Top Safety Pick and Top Safety Pick + models for 2019 by the US Institute of Road Safety (IIHS), there is only one US model, the other two names are surprising. The National Institute of Transportation Safety (IIHS) published a list of 2019 safety models, with 57 names arranged in two groups: 30 cars from Top Safety Pick + and 27 cars for Top Safety Pick.

The Pick + group has the highest scores from the perspective of protecting passengers in a previous collision and has a high score for headlights. The Pick group, meanwhile, is the car that scored the standard or higher on IIHS’s latest crash test, and the headlights score is also high.

It can be seen that the number of 2019 models reaching this rating has doubled (30 models) compared to 2018 models (only 15 models), with the majority of Japanese and Korean cars.

This impressive increase is even more noticeable as IIHS has increased the difficulty for its vehicle tests. In addition, there are 17 other models fail the highest rating because they do not score “well” in the headlight test.

Cars make up 70% of the cars that reach Top Safety Pick +, small and mid-sized SUVs make up the remaining 30%. It’s no surprise that pickups completely “disappear” from IIHS’s list of safe models. Only Honda Ridgeline has appeared in the list of 2018 model cars.

Xe nước nào an toàn nhất? Hai cái tên gây bất ngờ

Another noteworthy point is the absence of American vehicles on the list. Only Chrysler Pacifica got into the top Pick like last year. Most cars selected are Japanese and Korean. If you include both Pick and Pick +, Hyundai contributes the most cars. Some German automakers have Mercedes, BMW and Audi. Surprisingly, Volvo is absent. This is a special case because according to IIHS, Volvo misses the results of safety testing for passengers.

In terms of branding, Subaru leads the way with seven models reaching Top Safety Pick +, including Ascent, Crosstrek, Impreza sedan and wagon, Legacy, Outback and WRX.

Electric vehicles are also absent from the IIHS list, only the KIA Niro Plug-In Hybrid is the Hybrid model on the list. Tesla does not have any models because: The company does not provide IIHS with any data or models for testing.

In the age of technology that dominates the economy, traditional carmakers embark with technology companies to continue to exist, but that also carries many risks.

“Technology companies have enough money to buy the majority of the automobile industry” – that is the statement in the Quartz article at the end of 2017. The article cites an analysis by technology consulting firm Sherpa Technology Group: The business value of 16 of the top 20 automobile manufacturers in the world is 978 billion USD, totally worth the 1,100 billion USD that 20 leading technology companies in the world hold.

That hasn’t happened yet, but the numbers show how technology is dominating the global economy. And technology companies are one of the biggest challenges traditional car companies face.

The three major trends that will reshape the automobile industry in the period 2020-2030 are car, electric and self-driving car-sharing services, according to Vox forecasts. If car-sharing services affect the automotive industry primarily in terms of user behavior, electric cars and self-driving cars are more related to technology.

At this year’s Paris Motor Show, electric cars are the brightest star when finally, luxury brands like Mercedes and Audi have jumped into the game. Meanwhile, the prospect of self-driving cars is also noticeable with dozens of start-ups available.

A Reuters report said Ford, BMW and many other major carmakers have paid large sums of money to buy new technologies and develop them. But they understand that, with their hardware strengths, they will not be able to make the jump from combustion engine to electric motor, from driver to driverless, without the help of technology companies.

One of the leading start-ups in research, manufacturing electric cars and self-driving cars is Tesla of US billionaire Elon Musk. Despite the production turmoil and the founder’s recent mistakes, Tesla’s market value is still greater than that of Renault and PSA combined.
