“Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the PERFECT LAP!

And what better place to celebrate this important anniversary than at our home? Here is the place where everything is created, developed, and manufactured.
From our museum we start to retrace the main stages of our history, made by commitment, cleverness and success, everything MADE in BRIANZA.
In front of you, you can have a closer look to the historical products, among which you find the first carburetor REX. We are in 1933. In the museum we have collected the most iconic products that has marked our history during the years, for customers like Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Lamborghini, BMW and Piaggio…just to name a few.

And now follow me to the next stage!”
“Welcome to the 2° stop, where we celebrate the Italian spirit of our brand!
We would like to stress that DELLORTO is an Italian company, very proud to bring, all over the world, a product typically and exclusively “Made in Italy”, synonymous of design, quality and reliability.
In front of you can see two of our most representative products, being, even if in different ways and periods, two important stages of our history, marked both by common and racing items.
We can show you these two jewels, but, of course we did much more than that over our 90 years!
Our first product is the “ TA 17” carburetor, which went down in history due to the fact that it was fitting one of the most worldwide iconic two-wheeled vehicles: the “Vespa”, the Italian legend on two wheels for lots of generations, symbol of Made in Italy all over the world, acclaimed in the film “La Dolce Vita” by Federico Fellini. We are proud to be its beating heart!
DELLORTO’s activity is not limited to feed the most popular 4-wheelers and 2-wheelers vehicles in the market since, thanks to the big passion for the racing, we are even involved in motorsport domain supporting the competition teams.
In fact, you can see here our second product, the electronic throttle body supplied to Porsche and used in Porsche SuperCup, the most important competition for their category. DELLORTO, since 2018, is Porsche supplier.”
“Welcome to our Foundry; here the temperature is a constant all year round.
Here you can realize our production process, like in the show “how it’s done”.
In fact, we obtain our jewels from ingots of aluminum and Zama.
DELLORTO is an integrated company; all the stages of the production process are made in its plant in Cabiate.
Firstly, the aluminum/Zama ingot is melted at a temperature of 700°, it is poured into the die casting mould from which we obtain our raw product. After a procedure of trimming and shot blasting, it is sent to the machining department for precision mechanical machining.
The process is completed by assembling the tuning components, that we produce internally, in the assembly department. Now our product is ready to fit your cars and your motorcycles!”
“The boost coming from our passion has allowed us to compete along with the major two-and four wheels champions for several years.
The constant technological research and innovation have always been part of our DNA to race at the highest level for the unique aim: win together!
DELLORTO prides itself on its 500 world champion titles, road and track races, cross, enduro, Dakar, speed records, trial, supermotorad and kart; we have been supporting pilots of each period such as Giacomo Agostini, Lucio Cecchinello, Max Biaggi, Valentino Rossi, Marco Simoncelli, Andrea Iannone and today we are working with Aprilia with Vinales and Espargaro.
DELLORTO has always had a leading role in the light class of moto GP and as unique supplier of the electronic control unit at Moto 3 from 2021 till 2025.
