We are extremely pleased to be able to offer you today one of the most desirable Lamborghinis ever manufactured - the 400GT 2+2 coupe. This car dates from 1967 and it is a very rare car indeed, there were only approximately 412 built in total and very few right hand drive examples and the car has the beautiful 3929cc V12 unit, with two banks of triple Webber carburettors, and the manual five speed gearbox. The present private owner and vendor bought the car in 1970/71 when it had completed 13000 miles and it has done 26000 miles to date and although there is little paperwork to confirm the mileage the vendor is adamant that the mileage must be correct from new but it is definitely warranted from the time of his purchase. It has not been used on the road since 1982 and it is in need of some tender loving care and the owner informs us that the Borani wheels have rusted, some of the chrome will need attention as will the bodywork. The car has been started recently and we are informed that it ran well showing good oil pressure and that the transmission is in good working order but the brakes are in need of attention. The car is painted in Silver and it has the Tan leather upholstery and trim and it comes with the desirable registration number - DFG 9 - which is confirmed by both the original Green logbook and the current V5 registration document but it does not have a current M.O.T. This is a very rare opportunity to acquire a genuine supercar which although in need of some attention has the pedigree to make a stunning addition to any collection.
for sale at H and H's 13th March 2024 sale at Duxford IWM.
Estimate £450,000 - £550,000.
The advert read:
Believed to be one of the most original 400GT 2+2's in existence, with a highly credible c.27,950 miles from new
Sensational unrestored condition finished in Light Metallic Blue over Tobacco leather
One of four cars converted to right-hand drive by Hooper & Co. on behalf of Mitchell & Britten
Recently recommissioned from a 26 year period of dry storage since laid up after purchase by a highly respected collector in 1998 and from an H&H auction
Documented history since 1971 with only one previous keeper recorded with Green continuation logbook; however reputed to have also been owned by the respected engineer Brian Morgan from new.
Although, the earliest service record on file dates from September 1971 at 6,920 miles, the seller is extremely confident that the current odometer reading of 27,950 miles represents the total covered from new. As well as the exceptionally well preserved, ‘time warp’ interior, the Lamborghini pleasingly retains such fragile details as the original FIAMM stickers on its air cleaners. Examination of the transmission tunnel reveals evidence of where the factory had previously located the handbrake lever (Hooper fabricating a neat cover). Conscious that ‘DFG 9’ was original even down to its windscreen glass, the present owner has enjoyed having it on (essentially) static display as part of his impressive collection for the past twenty-six years. Aside from refreshing the tired paintwork via a bare metal respray which revealed no trace of major corrosion or accident damage, he has had the Borrani wire wheels refurbished and some minor brightwork improved. .
