Lamborghini’s first sports car. The first production vehicle of Lamborghini manufactured between 1964 and 1966.
Lamborghini 350 GT based on Lamborghini 350 GTV prototype was debuted at the 1964 Geneva Motor Show.
The 350 GT was the first Lamborghini car to be officially mass-produced, and it had a design that was a more balanced refinement of the prototype 350 GTV (designed by Franco Scaglione). The four-wheel independent suspension, aluminum body panels, and 3.5 liter quad cam V12 engine were all designed by Carrozzeria Touring. The 400 horsepower 3.5-liter V12 engine that powered the prototype 350 GTV was primarily a race engine, but Lamborghini engineers detuned it for everyday use. The detuned L350 engine produced a decent 270 horsepower and a top speed of 254 kilometers per hour.
Carrozzeria Touring produced 120 units of the 350 GT, the vast majority of which were equipped with a 3.5-liter 12-cylinder engine that produced 270 horsepower. The 350 GT was an instant success. On top of that, Carrozzeria Touring also spawned two Spyder versions (350 GTS).
Aluminum inserts were added to the bodywork, as well as independent suspension, Vaccum servo-assisted four disc brakes, and – on select units – a limited-slip differential, independent suspension, and Pirelli Cinturato tyres.
Lamborghini made a total of 120 GT’s before replacing it with 400 GT in 1966.
