Each year a new car, that's the motto of the company's owner and Ferrari challenger. 1964 this does not work yet so completely and 1965, the 350 GT is changed in many small steps. But in 1966 at the Geneva Motor Show is a 400 GT, which has grown not only in the engine volume of four liters, but also in the interior. The Ferrari 330 GT 2 +2 enforces the changeover from the 2 + 1 to 2 + 2 coupe. Not the wheelbase is changed to make room, but the height, the front wheel arches, the base and the rear window. The sale is more successful, however stopped by the bankruptcy of the body company Touring. Is rival Bertone will produce in the future for most of the Lamborghini car bodies.

Curves and beads dominate the front and the roof system. The later recovered pop-up headlamps at Lamborghini models remain with open front hood in its position. Striking is the huge rear window that extends far into the roof. Been built is by the way the not roadworthy prototype by Sargiotto from Turin. The chassis is from Neri & Bonacini, the tube frame of Marchesi/Modena. The complex cast iron parts for the crankcase and cylinder heads are from ATS (manufacturer of sports cars), other components of first-class partners such as Borrani, Girling, Pirelli, Salisbury, Veglia and ZF.               Top of page               Index
