We have already seen the perfect Lamborghini Miura SV that was restored by Lamborghini PoloStorico, and after an LM002 and a Countach, this time the official restoration department at Sant'Agata took on the task of bringing a 1964 350GT back to showroom condition.
Chassis number #0121 is one if the first 15 Lamborghini 350 GT ever produced, so it has original features that were changed during production, something the PoloStorico department had to research to make sure this car left the one-year restoration project as close to factory specs back in 1964 as possible ... and they succeeded perfectly.
The white paint has been applied in a similar way as back in the Sixties, a nitroacrylic paint consisting of 22 layers, wet sanding between every layer made sure the white shows a very deep shine and accentuates the delicate lines of this first Lamborghini production model.
Inside a perfect black leather interior complements the exterior with a period correct radio, restored dials and a stunning wooden steering wheel with brushed aluminum spokes, that same aluminum is used around the dials on the central console.
The 72 spoke Ruote Borrani de Milano wheels are authenticated by the actual supplier, covered with brand new Pirelli Cinturato 205/15 tires, just like when she came from the assembly line in 1964, while the engine has been rebuilt ... and optimized to make sure it stayed authentic to her heritage but still remains safe for everyday use today.
If you have a classic Lamborghini that requires a restoration you might want to contact the PoloStorico department, they have access to parts for over 70% of all classic Bulls ... and can have parts remanufactured if needed ... this white 350 GT required more than 1,150 hours of body and interior work in addition to 780 hours on mechanics and electrics ... but by using Lamborghini Original Spare Parts the value of this car has risen tremendously.
