Lamborghini Celebrates The 350 GT

Six decades after its grand unveiling, Lamborghini‘s inaugural production model, the 350 GT, has made a return to Geneva, the city where it first captured the automotive world’s imagination. This moment commemorates the vehicle’s debut at the Geneva Motor Show in 1964, marking a significant chapter in Lamborghini’s storied history.

The 350 GT’s journey began with its precursor, the 350 GTV prototype, presented just a few months after Lamborghini’s establishment. By March 1964, the 350 GT was ready to be shown at the Geneva Motor Show, symbolizing the dawn of the iconic bull brand in the automotive market.

The 350 GT marked Lamborghini’s commercial inception as well as set a new standard for sports cars with its luxurious interiors, comprising leather and chrome plating and a unique 2 + 1 seating configuration. Its engineering prowess, featuring four independent wheels and an engine capable of 320 CV, positioned it at the forefront of automotive innovation at the time of production.

Its engine stands as a cornerstone of Lamborghini’s success and would later evolve into the 4L V12 for the 400 GT, continuing to power Lamborghini models for four decades. This engine’s versatility underscored its significance in automaker’s DNA, finding its place in various models over the years.
