The Jarama 400GT – unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1970 – was Lamborghini’s last front-engine GT, concluding the line established by the original 350GT. Designed by Marcello Gandini for Carrozzeria Bertone, the Jarama’s understated silhouette belied its comfortable 2+2 interior and outstanding 160 mph top speed. Only 177 examples were produced between May 1970 and March 1972, making it a rarity from the beginning.

This Jarama, chassis no. 10348, was the last example built finished in the handsome color scheme of Luci del Bosco (Bronze Metallic) over special-order Senape leather upholstery. Marque experts believe that 10348 is the last of approximately 20 Jaramas originally equipped with the desirable twin-panel, removable sunroofs.

Delivered new to Angelo Pegno of Oyster Bay, New York, this rare Italian GT remained with its original owner for 37 years and remains in excellent, original condition throughout and is accompanied by an original owner’s manual and tool roll.

A superb example of the model that Ferruccio Lamborghini considered to be his personal favorite, this Jarama 400GT combines the marque’s very best characteristics – exotic Bertone styling, advanced engineering, and sublime features – in one highly sophisticated grand touring package.
