VM Motori was founded in 1947. The Company is specialised in the design and production of diesel engines for a variety of uses.


VM Motori's engines were initially targeted towards the industrial, agricultural and marine industries. It was the development of a new range of state of the art, turbocharged diesel engines in the mid-seventies that saw VM Motori start to make a name for itself in the automotive sector.

The Birth of the Turbotronic

In 1990 VM Motori launched the Turbotronic engine featuring an electronically controlled injection system and EGR. This engine, widely considered to be the cleanest light duty diesel engine in the world, was notable for having produced best in class performance and emissions results.
