Designer Carrozzeria Touring

The Lamborghini 350GT is a grand touring car designed and built by Carrozzeria Touring of Bianchi Anderloni had the chance to completely redesign the 350 GTV, everything about the exterior was changed, even the chassis was altered, again by Neri & Bonacini, under direct order from Chief Engineering Giampaolo Dallara. Touring also built the 35O GT, and used it's patented Superleggera method for it. The pop-up headlights of the 350 GTV were replaced by fixed oval units.The complete body design was smoothened but the overall looks were still different from any other car, but at least now they were very pleasing. On the engine, the rather expensive and rare vertical Weber carburetors were removed, and horizontal, side-draught ones were installed.

All these changes created the 35O GT (the 'V' for Veloce was dropped) in just five months, and everybody looked with great astonishment at the car on the 1964 Geneva Auto Show, orders for it began coming in. Once the car was released for road testing, people liked it even more, this was a smooth-running, sophisticated high-performer that was generally faster and technically ahead of everything Ferrari had been offering.In 1966, Lamborghini made little refinements to it, the front grill styling was altered, now with two horizontal bars in the air-intake. A second windscreen wiper was added and a rear backup light was installed underneath the license plate holder. Two air intakes appeared ahead of the windscreen, and in the interior, the dashboard trim was changed to leather, instead of the early polished aluminium. That same year, Lamborghini could install a 4.0-Liter engine into the 350 GT chassis, resulting in the 400 GT (not the 2+2 however !). Today these early 350's are rather hard to find, let alone restore, don't think you can afford a Lamborghini too fast, restoring an aluminium bodied car like this and keeping it running afterwards is very expensive.
