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. This example retains the matching-numbers 3,929 CC DOHC 60º alloy V-12 engine, fed by six Weber 40 DCOE carburetors, delivering a whopping 320 bhp at 6500. The 5 speed manual gearbox propelled the car to astonishing high speeds while 4 wheel Girling disc brakes performed the stopping duties.
This car (Chassis #0622) was delivered in 1967 as one of only 247 examples built prior to the end of this seminal model run. Originally finished in the stunning factory color, Grigio Saint-Vincent, the car was imported to the US and subsequently purchased by Southern California custom motorcycle builder Joe “Alphabet” Skrzyniarz. After passing through an intermediary owner for about three years, the Lamborghini was sold in the late 1980s to James Simkins of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, accumulating very few miles in the 15-year period. Noted Automotive Hall of Fame journalist, former Petersen Museum Director, and museum curator Ken Gross purchased the car in 1989, immediately retaining local Philadelphia marque expert Mike Tillson to refresh the brakes and electrical system to make the car an enjoyable weekend driver.
Mr. Gross recalls: “When I bought the car in 1989, it had very low mileage, about 8500 miles. I drove it quite a bit and really enjoyed it a great deal. The 400GT was always very reliable, comfortable and fast. Its predecessor was a 275GTB6C and to be honest, the Lamborghini was a more comfortable Grand Tourer. You could have a conversation at 70-mph with the windows down and not yell. It was so aerodynamically perfect and drove like a dream.”
Mr. Gross sold the car in 1994 to James Mullen of Massachusetts, a former Mazda factory driver, winner of the 1983 12 Hours of Sebring, and dedicated collector of vintage cars. Mr. Mullen entrusted the 400 GT to his personal mechanic, Jay Dow, who continued to service the car fastidiously for the next 22 years, even during his more recent employment at the renowned restoration house, Paul Russell and Company. In 2011, the car was exhibited at the Saratoga Automobile Museum, Forza Italia! exhibit, Saratoga Springs, New York. In 2015, Mr. Dow upgraded several of the hardware components for improved aesthetics, and performed a comprehensive engine rebuild to a high aesthetic and mechanical standard. The suspension was also refreshed, a new stainless steel exhaust system was installed, and new Michelin tires mounted. Beautifully maintained throughout its life this 400 GT has accrued about 250 miles since the rebuilt engine, and currently displays 13,300 miles, a figure believed to be original, and supported by previous owners.
Today this 400GT presents attractively with light patina from casual use. All closures are nicely aligned to the sound Superleggera body, complemented by bright Borrani wire wheels and near new Michelin tires. The cabin is tidy with correct appointments and interior trim pieces, while the upholstery remains supple. One of the finest features of this handsome car is the engine compartment and undercarriage. Finishes are faithfully executed, with all hoses and lines prepared both for accuracy and mechanical confidence. The trunk is properly lined and houses a correct Borrani spare tire. The undercarriage is nicely preserved showing no evidence of structural damage, honestly depicting low miles and with its factory original undercoat in tact.
The car eases smoothly into gear and spools up with solid, tight and well-balanced acceleration. Drivers will be especially pleased with the ergonomics in the 400GT both in the seating position and in the expansive greenhouse. In addition to the acceleration, cornering and braking remind even the most ardent Ferrari enthusiasts of the Lamborghini's sophistication against its market competitor, the 330 GTC.
Documentation from the previous owner including records and receipts for service, a workshop manual, and various magazines are included with the car. This 400GT will serve the new owner with great driving rewards, superb history, and remain an invitation for further curatorial expertise either as a preserved artifact of its history or returned to visual perfection via a future restoration. Exceptionally well-sorted, properly maintained for decades by dedicated enthusiasts and marque specialists, Lamborghini 400GT #0622 is now available for worldwide purchase and deliver from our Houston, Texas showroom.
