Lamborghini 400 GT Flying Spur II


Built by  Carrozzeria Touring as possible way to seal the deal with Lamborghini to build the 400’s replacement, it made its debut in 1966 at the Turin Motor Show. Designed to be the ultimate way for 2 people to travel in luxury with luggage, this Grand Tourer was certainly different.

The body designed by Carlo Anderloni was on a 10cm shortened 400GT chassis, and unlike most “concept” cars was fully functional being fitted with all round intendant suspension and disc brakes as well as a V12. Unfortunately it didn’t help Touring retain the Lamborghini contract and a year later the factory closed its doors. The car went through various hands until fully restored it appeared at the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este in 2013. You must admit it’s one striking looking car with one purpose in mind, cross countries as speed like all good GT cars should.

  1. Oh man, I LOVE old Lamborghinis. Most people think of the newer ones when they hear the word Lamborghini and they pretty much have no idea that anything other than those newer versions exist at all.

  2. It is a delight to drive a high performance Lamborghini model that has a powerful engine. Have you ever thought of an inevitable Lamborghini repair condition? models
