The 400 GT was Ferruccio’s idea of the perfect car. This owner has clocked up 250,000 miles on this stunning automobile suggesting it just might have been.
Glance at this vintage 1967 Lamborghini 400 GT 2+2 and you'd be forgiven for thinking it had come straight from a museum with just a handful of miles on the clock. But looks can be deceiving. In reality, owner Jack Riddell has driven over 250,000 miles since buying the car from its original owner in 1972. In that time the engine has been rebuilt five times, the transmission several times, the interior has been restored and the body has had a respray to its original shade of red.
Impressively, those rebuilds of the 4.0-liter V12 were performed by Riddell himself, and for other owners of Lamborghinis with the same engine (such as the early Countach and Miura) contemplating doing the same, he has written an online guide detailing the process.
