3,929 cc DOHC V-12 engine, six Weber twin-choke carburetors, 320 BHP (DIN) at 7,000 RPM, five-speed manual gearbox, four-wheel independent suspension with double wishbones, coil springs, and telescopic shock absorbers, four-wheel vacuum-assisted hydraulic disc brakes; wheelbase: 2,550 mm (100.4”)


While discussions will likely continue for many years concerning the true motivation behind the establishment of Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A, founder and successful Italian industrialist Ferruccio Lamborghini’s vision of the ultimate GT car was certainly realized early on. Having recruited some of the era’s finest Italian racing engineers including Giotto Bizzarrini and Gian Paolo Dallara, both refugees of Scuderia Ferrari’s infamous 1961 “Palace Revolt,” Lamborghini development quickly progressed from the radical Franco Scaglione-penned 350 GTV show car debuted at Turin in 1963, through the 350 GT and 400 GT “Interim” two-seaters. The swift 4.0-litre, four-place 400 GT 2+2 that followed them represents to many the finest and most definitive expression of the early Lamborghini Grand Touring automobile concept. Introduced at the 1966 Geneva Salon, the 400 GT 2+2 skilfully combined a longer wheelbase and four-seat passenger cabin with the excellent performance delivered by Lamborghini’s six-carburetor, 4.0-litre V-12 engine – in 320-bhp tune – and a smoother and quieter new Lamborghini-produced five-speed gearbox.

One of as few as 247 examples produced according to marque experts, this 1967 Lamborghini 400 GT 2+2 marks an exciting find at auction as a California “Black Plate” car with wonderful provenance including 48 years of single-family ownership. Numbered 01054, known history dates to circa-1970, when Robert Edward Cannon of Santa Barbara, California purchased 01054, presumably from the original owner. Service records on file commence July 23, 1975 when the car had 29,025 recorded miles and continue to September 24, 1986. At the time of cataloguing, 31,458 miles are indicated on the odometer and are believed to be original.

As offered, 01054 is a highly fascinating, virtual “time capsule” with all factory-applied and installed decals, VIN plates, the Touring body number plate, and chassis numbers properly in their respective places. The interior compartment is original and quite remarkable in presentation with well-preserved pigskin leather upholstery, the original carpeting, and “like new” dash, center console, and door panels. Additionally, the Lamborghini retains all original glass including the rear window with defroster, Hella lights, original windshield-wiper arms, mirror, chrome and trim, wire wheels, FIAAM air-filter boxes, a Motorola solid-state radio, and Jaeger instruments which are fascinating works of art unto themselves. From its “Bicentennial” protective plastic used to preserve the leather panels and seats, to a copy of the Los Angeles Times newspaper dated September 14, 1986, the entire car seems frozen in time and inspecting it really becomes an education of how these cars were built, delivered, and subsequently preserved for posterity by a caring long-term owner.

Upon inspection, the underside of the vehicle remains remarkably original and corrosion-free in appearance. The factory-applied undercoating remains intact throughout and the entire body is straight with consistent panel gaps throughout. An early Lamborghini of this quality and originality has likely not been offered in the United States for a very long time. Certainly, it offers a truly rare opportunity to acquire a limited-production, unrestored early example of one of the storied marque’s foundational V-12 Grand Touring models.
