Lamborghini 400GT

Lamborghini 400GTThe Lamborghini 400GT 2+2 was a 2+2-seated sports car from the Italian manufacturer Lamborghini, successor to the 350GT. First presented at the 1966 Geneva Auto Show.

Compared to its predecessor the engine was enlarged to 3929 cc (240 c.i.), increasing the power to 320 bhp (239 kW). The 400GT 2+2 was actually a different body from the 350GT, with a longer wheelbase, different roofline, and some sheetmetal changes throughout the car. The larger body shape enabled the +2 seating to be installed in the rear, where the 350GT only had room for luggage or +1 seating. The bodywork was designed by Carrozzeria Touring. The 400GT 2+2 also had a Lamborghini designed gearbox, with Porsche style synchromesh on all gears, which greatly improved the drivetrain.

There was a variant of the 350GT with the 4L V12 fitted to it, which was called the 400GT. Only 23 of these smaller coupes were built, three of which had desirable aluminum bodywork.

A total of 247 units were built from 1966 to 1968, when it was replaced with the Islero. A special, one-off version called the 400GT Monza was built by Neri and Bonacini, who had previously worked on the 350GT.

Lamborghini 350GT

Lamborghini 350GTThe Lamborghini 350GT was the first production car by Lamborghini, first shown at the Turin Motor Show in 1963.

The 350GT’s name is derived from it’s 3.5 litre quad-cam V-12 engine. The 350GT has an independent rear suspension while Ferrari and many other manufacturers still used live rear axles. The 350’s body is a controversial 2+1 semi-fastback design by Carrozzeria Touring of Milan. The 350GT generally drew high praises at the time for its flexible, high-revving engine, its stable cornering on rough and smooth surfaces, and its high level of finish. One hundred twenty were built from 1963 to 1966.

The 350GT has a top speed of 149 mph (240 km/h) and can accelerate to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 6.8 seconds.
