Released in 1964, the 350 GT was deemed to be Lamborghini's
first production car. With an all-new Touring body,
it had alloy panels over a steel frame.
Under the bonnet
was a four-cam V12 motor with side-draught carburettors
for its low bonnet. It also used a pukka coil spring and tubular wishbone
with Girling discs from Britain.
advancements of the 350GT resulted from the collaboration
of Giampaolo Dallara and Giotto Bizzarini who's expertise
in engineering layed the groundwork of many future Lamborghini's.
It was incredibly fast, superbly smooth and could top
257 km/h. The body was of alloy and perceived as being
the lightest and fastest of its kind.
Later models included the 400GT and GT two-plus-two
with the latter using steel for its body.
In 1965 a
four-litre engine became an option, but only 23 of these
were assembled before Lamborghini introduced the steel-bodied
400GT two-plus-two in 1967.
