#7039 Lamborghini 350 GT (1964)
Lamborghini 350 GT (1964) at the Technik Museum Sinsheim (Germany)
The Lamborghini 350 GT was a Grand Tourer manufactured by Lamborghini between 1964 and 1966. It was the first production vehicle produced by Lamborghini. The 350 GT was based on the earlier Lamborghini 350 GTV and was equipped with a 3.5 litre V12 engine and a 2-door coupé body by Carrozzeria Touring. The 350 GT debuted at the March 1964 Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland and production began the following May. The success of this model ensured the company's survival, establishing it as a viable competitor with rival manufacturer Ferrari. Lamborghini produced one hundred-twenty 350 GTs before replacing it with the Lamborghini 400 GT in 1966.
The above Lamborghini 350 GT was built in 1964 with chassis number 0105 is the very first Lamborghini ever, finished in a Bianco Acrilico (Blue) exterior and a Rosso (Red) leather interior. Ferruccio Lamborghini personally sold it at the Geneva Motor Show on 31 March 1964. Its history is documented in all details in more than 200 letters and documents by Lamborghini. The car is in an absolute original condition without any restoration. Even the tyres are the original ones from 1964. The mileage is only 5000 km (about 3100 mi), which is a real sensation for a sports car of this age.
