Introduced at the 1966 Geneva Auto Show, the Lamborghini 400 GT was an evolution of the company’s first model, the 350 GT. The new name signified the increased engine size to four liters, while the greater overall length accommodated four seats, resulting in the 2+2 configuration – combining performance and elegance in a highly capable road car.

Chassis # was completed May 9, 1967, and soon destined for the United States via Jake Kaplan’s East Coast Lamborghini distributorship – finished in a most stunning Azzurro Fiat over Senape Leather Upholstery. The 400GT found its way to the West Coast and would later take up uninterrupted residency in garaged storage for several decades. It was discovered and transferred to our care and ownership in 2020.

Today, the Lamborghini presents, in highly original condition – with the exception of an early exterior repaint in red, while retaining its last 1979 registered California “Blue Plates”. 01012 comes recognized by the International Lamborghini Registry as a numbers-matching example, from a relatively famed and documented California garage find…

  • A straight body displays consistent gaps, original glass, trim, rubbers, lenses and fittings, complemented by 15×6.5 Borrani wire wheels and aged 205SR15 tires.
  • Inside, the cabin appears to retain the majority its original trim, upholstery, and components as well.

-This includes its coveted Borletti air conditioning, period Motorola AM/FM radio, wood-rimmed steering wheel, power windows, toggle switches and various original equipment.

-The GT’s original leather and surrounds were dyed to its current black color – likely around the same time as the body repaint.

  • Both of the Lamborghini’s Azzurro Fiat (light blue metallic) and Senape (tan) original paint and upholstery colors can be seen on various areas of the vehicle. In this unusually seen livery, would benefit greatly if taken back to its delivery form.
  • Originality continues to the engine compartment, including the heat shield/pad and identification plaques auxiliary and a/c equipment. The luggage compartment is properly lined and houses a correct Borrani spare tire.
  • The undercarriage retains a solid frame, steering, and suspension components – representative of a lifetime spent in the mild California climate.
  • With an engine designed by Giotto Bizzarrini, fresh from Ferrari, and a chassis engineered by Gianpaolo Dallara, Touring’s Superleggera bodywork untimely crowns the charging bull.
  • This 1967 Lamborghini 400GT 2+2 offers a rewarding invitation for further preservation or returned to delivery specifications….
