1964 350 GT Zagato

Scaglione, an employee of Sargiotto located in Turin, was tasked with
designing a new vehicle for the newly formed Automobili Ferruccio
Lamborghini S.p.A. The result was a prototype labeled the Lamborghini
350 GTV and first displayed at the 1963 Turin Auto Show. The interior
was leather while the finish was a bright metallic blue color. The
engine was not installed in the car because it would not fit. The
vertical carburetors were too large and did not fit under the hood.
Only recently has the vehicle been restored and the chassis was altered
to allow room for the engine.After the Turin Show, Carlo
Anderloni of Touring was brought in to redesign the 350 and prepare it
for production. Along with the redesign, the engine was detuned because
Ferruccio Lamborghini desired a smooth running, refined engine rather
than a highly-tuned racing powerplant. Horsepower dropped from 350 to
270. In 1964 Ferruccio Lamborghini debuted the
production version, the 350 GT, the V had been dropped, to the public
at the Geneva Auto Show. The car was powered by a Giotto Bizzarini
designed 12-cylinder engine, sat atop a tubular steel chassis, and
featured independent suspension and a ZF gearbox. Disc brakes were
placed on all four tires. This was Lamborghini's first
serial-production GT vehicle. Producing 280 horsepower, the 350 GT was
a formidable contender with the other super-cars of the day. During
its introductory year, only thirteen examples were created. Around 120
examples were created in total. All were mostly hand-built. As early as
1965, Lamborghini began using an enlarged 3929 cc engine which saw
horsepower rise to 320. Twenty-three examples were produced in 1965.
