The latest episode of Jay Leno’s Garage features one of the most amazing Lamborghinis ever, a 350 GT, which was the first production car the company made in 1965. The model was limited to only 135 units, so the chance to actually find one in good driving conditions at this point is quite rare.
The car was brought to the garage by Andrew Romanowski of Lamborghini Club of America, whom we spoke to a few months ago, and he offers a few more details on Lamborghini’s first supercar.
The model was previewed by the 350 GTV concept and then unveiled at the 1964 Geneva motor show. It was powered by a four-cam V-12 engine that delivered a total of 350 horsepower and was combined with a four-wheel independent suspension and an aluminum body. The model was capable to hit a top speed of 158 mph. Every one of those numbers are astounding for that period.
