Ferruccio Lamborghini had founded his namesake company in 1963 to challenge Ferrari’s dominance in GT and high performance sports cars. The Italian industrial magnate (known for building tractors prior to founding his car company) burst onto the scene with some very impressive cars, including this 350 GT as tested by Car and Driver in the March 1966 issue. The driving capabilities and performance of the 350 GT were praised much more than the styling–and C&D wondered how Lamborghini would address that issue. The answer would soon arrive: the 1966 Geneva Motor Show would see Lamborghini unveil the landmark Muira, one of the world’s all-time most beautiful cars.
