1967 Lamborghini 400GT 2+2 for sale! Motorcar Classics is proud to present this handsome 1967 Lamborghini 400GT 2+2 featured in black with beige leather interior. This car comes to us from 25 years in a local collection. The car has had three owners and recorded 92,265 KM (Approximately 54k miles) most of which were put on by the first two owners. It is in largely original condition with one respray and is best characterized as a high level driver.
When Lamborghini, a respected Italian manufacturer of tractors and farm equipment, set out to build a better Grand Tourer than Ferrari, he hired the best in the industry and debuted with the 350GT. While the 350GT was well received, Lamborghini produced 23 350GTs with an enlarged 4-liter version of their V-12 and called them 400GTs. The new Lamborghini 400GT 2+2 was introduced at Geneva in 1966. It was comfortably appointed, a capable cruiser at speeds above 150 mph, and had two small rear seats for four hypothetical occupants. The car broadened Lamborghinis appeal as it offered more power and more seating than its 350GT predecessor.
For the 400GT 2+2 the differential and rear suspension were modified to lower the floor pan. Only 247 cars were produced from 1966 to 1968. The new Lamborghini 400GT 2+2 was sheathed in steel bodywork that was thoroughly revised by Touring in order to accommodate the back seats while preserving the 350GTs attractive proportions, resulting in almost every panel on the car being new in spite of its likeness to the previous car. The 2+2 had four headlights instead of the 350GTs two, but numerous other features of the 400GT 2+2 improved upon and set it apart from the 350GT. In addition to the larger and more powerful 320-hp 3929-cc version of the wonderful Bizzarini-designed six-Weber V-12, Lamborghini also introduced their own five-speed gearbox that by all accounts was easier to use and quieter than the 350GTs ZF unit. Changes to the four-wheel independent suspension were also introduced to accommodate the cars 400 extra pounds of weight. Reviews at the time compared the car favorably in handling and performance to its Ferrari contemporaries.
Our car runs and drives well and exhibits honest patina. Few of the delightful Grand Touring cars survive and they are worthy rivals of Ferraris mid and late 1960s Grand Tourers.
