The Jarama 400 GT – unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1970 – was Lamborghini’s last front-engine GT, concluding the line established by the original 350 GT. Only 177 examples were produced between May 1970 and March 1972, making it a rarity from the beginning.

Delivered to New York in late 1971 and carefully preserved since, this Jarama presents today with less than 29,000 miles on the odometer, believed by the current owner to be original. Boasting limited ownership, this Lamborghini is accompanied by documentation detailing its recent mechanical and cosmetic attention in the hands of San Diego-based marque specialists Bobilef Motorcar Company. An attractive example, finished in period-correct dark red with original tan leather upholstery, this 400 GT features exotic Campagnolo knock-of wheels, air-conditioning, and many preserved original features. Additionally, the engine number stamped on the block (40550) corresponds to the identification plate riveted to the inner fender.

A limited-production model that Ferruccio Lamborghini regarded as his personal favorite, the Jarama 400 GT combines the marque’s very best qualities – exotic Bertone styling; a magnificent six-carb, four-cam V-12; and sublime features – in one highly sophisticated GT package.
