History of the 350GT

The first Lamborghini to ever be made is the 350 GTV, which was later sold as a production model known as the 350 GT.It all started when Ferrucio Lamborghini decided to bring his Ferrari for a simple repair. At the time Ferrucio was manufacturing tractors out of demilitarized equipment and had no intention in building supercars. However that day he approached Enzo Ferrari with a complaint about the clutch of his latest Ferrari. Enzo’s response to the complaint was, “What does a tractor maker know about super cars? Go back to your farm and leave the supercars to me”. In rage and insulted, Ferruccio took his Ferrari home and fixed the problem himself using a tractor clutch. This little repair would be his first step in a long journey in the automotive world.

The 350 GT was first unveiled at the 1964 Geneva motor show, showing off its new tamed engine, streamlined chassis, and more elegantly designed body. The new beast’s four-cam V12 engine was reduced from 360 horsepower to 270, at 6,500 rpm. Like the concept 350 GTV, the production version had four-wheel independent suspension and an aluminum body.
The first production car of the 350 GT was built shortly after it’s unveiling. For production, the body of the 350 underwent a few changes. These changes included the replacement of the pop-up counterpart headlamps with fixed headlights. The manufacture of the bodies was entrusted to Touring of Milan. They used their patented Supperleggra method of construction, which fixed aluminum-alloy panels directly to a tube shaped structure. Production sales of the 350 GT started slow, with only 13 production models built in 1964.

The 350 GT soon impressed journalist and car enthusiasts around the world, and production increased to 25 cars per month. Lamborghini sold a total of 120 production models of the 350 GT, over the next few years. Each car sold was practically hand-made, so the modifications were unpredictable. The grille was often revised, a second windshield wiper and cowl air intakes were added, and the leather dash was eventually replaced with a polished aluminum dash.
This is the car that launched the Lamborghini brand and showed Ferrari that it could not rest on its laurels.

This car:

This car is one of the best 350GT's to be found anywhere in the world. Having traversed only 36k kilometers (22,000 miles) it was put into storage for almost 25 years. Upon removal it was put into a 2 year restoration of the highest calibre. All new paint is beyond perfect and would satisfy any Pebble Beach judge. The chrome is breathtaking, the interior is simply the best I have ever seen. The car runs and drives perfectly having had the mechanicals addressed. I personally saw the car that sold for $440k at Russo and Steele last summer. Although that car was nice, the restoration of this one easily surpasses it. This is the car you want. I am not going to give it away, however if you want an absolutely fabulous car that is going up in value every year, then this is the one to buy.
