Lamborghini 350 GTV 1963

Ferrucci Lamborghini started to feel frustrated with his Ferrari and so decided to build his own car. To do this, the carmaker used his tractor factory and built the 350GTV prototype with the help of Giotto Bizzarrini, Franco Scaglione, Giorgi Neri and Lucciano Bonacini. To be more precise, the designer was Franco Scaglione and Sargiotto Bodyworks of Turin build it. Then only one car was built and it was painted in bright metallic blue. This incredible model was presented to the world at the 1963 Turin Auto Show. Somewhere around 1980, the car was restored and also, it was repainted green. You can now find it resting in Japan.
