Lamborghini 350 GT
After the presentation of the first prototype thanks to Ferruccio Lamborghini in 1963, the 350 GTV was mass-produced a year later. Before the end of 1966 Carrozzeria Touring had made 120 models, the majority with 3.5 litre 12-cylinder engine and 320 HP – another 23 models were added to these, already using the 4-litre V12 engine and 320 HP, but with more torque and more comfortable to drive.
The 350 GT delivered on all its promises but also included more of the attributes sought by Lamborghini, in particular solid construction. And thanks to Dallara and Wallace, the car’s chassis gave sound and consistent handling. This was a luxury GT as Ferruccio Lamborghini, the prototype consumer for which it was designed, felt it should be.
Two 350 GT were built by Carrozzeria Touring in the Spyder version.
