350GT Lamborghini History
Ferruccio Lamborghini gained a large amount of money as a tractor builder. With this money he bought a Ferrari 250 GT. When he got the car he had problems with the clutch. Upon returning the vehicle to the Ferrari shop and complaining about the lack of build quality, Enzo Ferrari replied 'You should stick with building tractors and let me deal with the cars.' Ferruccio was so angered, that he decided to build a car to better Ferrari.
The fruits of his labours (from a workforce including Bizzarini) was a prototype called the Lamborghini 350 GTV which was first displayed at the 1963 Turin Auto Show. The car was not a runner as the engine would not fit due to the carburetors being to tall to fit under the bonnet! A problem rectified during the cars recent restoration.
After the Turin Show, Touring were introduced to massage the shape of the 350GTV and ready it for production The pop-up headlights were replaced with single oval units that were incorporated into the bonnet. To cure the engines clearance problems the six twin-choke Weber carburetors were placed horizontally between the camshafts in order to fit under the bonnet. Along with the redesign, the engine was slightly detuned because Ferruccio Lamborghini desired a smooth running, refined engine rather than a highly-tuned racing power-plant. Horsepower dropped from 350 to 270 with a 320hp version available as an option.
The picture below shows the 205VR15 CN72 CINTURATO ™ HS tyre that PIRELLI put into production in 1964, which was original equipment for the Lamborghini 350GT. On either side of this tyre are more modern 70% profile tyre sizes that are often fitted by mistake. On the left is a 205/70VR15, which is far too small in diameter, and on the right is a 215/70VR15 which is closer in dimensions and would also be a good tyre for the Lamborghini 350GT. Some cars that fitted the 205VR15 CINTURATO ™ changed to the 215/70VR15 tyre when the low profile tyre was developed at the beginning of the 1970's
The 350 GT was first shown in 1964 at the Geneva Auto Show. In 1966 a four litre engine was available in the front-engined Lamborghini as optional equipment. This version became known as the 400 GT. A few examples were built before it was replaced by the 400 GT 2+2. The two-plus-two configuration made the supercar a little more practical, allowing room for additional occupants in the rear seats. The design of the 2+2 varied slightly from the 400 GT. The 2+2 was constructed of steel while the 400 GT used aluminium. The most distinguishable difference was the double-oval headlights in the front of the 2+2.
