Romolo Ferri folds down into his Lambretta Record, and takes a deep breath. It is August 8, 1951, and the brave pilot with red bullet – made of rubber, metal and plexiglass – slices through the air and reaches 201 kilometers per hour. It is a source of pride to the Lambretta Record’s manufacturer, Innocenti; to its inventor, engineer Pierluigi Torre; and of course to Ferri, who will continue to set records with his full-throttle, red Lambretta.
