René Leimer

Leimer bought 49 percent of Automobili Lamborghini from Ferruccio Lamborghini in 1974. He encountered economical and administrative problems during this period, which ended with the declaring of bankruptcy in 1978. 1977 seemed to be a good year for the factory, with a contract with BMW to produce the M1 sports car. However, the economical failure of the Cheetah project caused BMW to cancel the contract, leaving Lamborghini with huge economical problems.
