Jay Leno Drives First Production Lamborghini, the 350 GT

Built between 1964 and 1966, the 350 GT was the first production automobile created by Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. The car was created because Ferruccio Lamborghini didn’t like the clutch in his Ferrari.
And so he decided to build a better car, one that’s better suited for regular road conditions. This playboy’s automobile came with a 3.5-liter 60 degree aluminum block V12. This engine served as the basis for most Lamborghini engines up until only recently.

Back in September, Jay Leno drove the highest mileage Lamoborghini in the world, a red 400 GT, the successor for the 350 which was basically the same except it came with a bigger 4-liter engine.

Even though they only make RWD cars nowadays, the same spirit is found the modern Lambos. They are much more fun to drive on the road, compared to the Ferrraris, which are at home on the track. Lamborghini should really consider making a coupe like this one. We really wouldn’t be offended if they used a twin-”turban” V8.
