Lamborghini 350 GT: returns home 60 years later

As in the best adventure novels, everything begins with a journey. Whether it is a fictional narrative or a fantastic epic, the hero’s path begins with the decision to travel to make history and this is the case of our hero, the Lamborghini 350GT that once again undertakes the journey to the city that crowned it as a historic car.

The 350GT returns to Geneva, 60 years oldafter To be presented at the Auto Show that bears the city’s name, a car designed with precision and skill, an iconic car that encapsulated the essence of cutting-edge engineering and design that would characterize Lamborghini for years to come.

Not only was a car presented, the commercial history of Automobili Lamborghini then began at its stand at the 1964 Geneva Motor Show, of course, with the debut of the 350 GT. From that moment on, everything is history.

The design of the Lamborghini 350 GT

The design of the 350 GT was a masterpiece of the Carrozzeria Touring of Milan, recognized for its ability to combine sportiness and elegance in its creations. With an aluminum body, the 350 GT exhibited aerodynamic lines and an imposing presence that distinguished it on any road.

At the same fair, customers were able to purchase a car unit and were among the first owners of the bull emblem. From its design, the 350 GT was intended as a car that was fast and lean at the same time. The chassis was the result of the work of the engineer Giampaolo Dallaravery young at that time and now considered the best chassis manufacturer in the world.

The Lamborghini 350 GT engine

Equipped with a 3.5-liter V12 engine, the 350 GT generated a maximum power of 320 HP at 7000 rpm, delivering performance and a driving experience never seen before in an Italian manufacturer that knew how to unite performance and design in one piece with so much success.

Its innovative engine, designed by engineer Giotto Bizzarrini and adapted by the engineer Paolo Stanzani, established a standard of excellence in the automotive industry. Beyond these data, we have to say that the engineering was surprising: the four wheels with independent suspension and the performance of its engine, were cutting-edge innovations. The engine captivated all visitors to the stand, where Ferruccio Lamborghini himself showed the car to curious onlookers, future customers and journalists.

As confirmation of its qualities, the Lamborghini V12 was increased to 4 liters only a few months later in the 400GTand in this new configuration it would become, once again, the cornerstone of Lamborghini’s success and a symbol for the brand that fused elegance, performance and exclusivity, the hallmark of what we know at Lamborghini today.

Return to Geneva

Sixty years after its debut, the Lamborghini 350 GT returns to the streets of this emblematic Swiss city. As the brand’s oldest production vehicle still in existence, this commemorative event celebrates not only Lamborghini’s rich history, but also its continued innovation and passion for excellence. As a curious fact, you should know that the car displayed at the stand was the 350 GT chassis no. 101of Geneva green color metallic with white interior, the first to be manufactured. Car number 1 was later used as a development and endurance test vehicle until it was destroyed by a rear-end collision while stopped at a traffic light.

However, the following 350 GT, with the second chassis number, it did survive: metallic gray with red interior, issued from Sant’Agata Bolognese on August 15, 1964 and delivered brand new in Geneva. That same car is now the Lamborghini as standard oldest in existence, perfectly restored and certified by Lamborghini Polo Storico. And what better way than to return it to the place where the history of Lamborghini was born so that it rolls on the Geneva road.

Pure adventure narrative.
