ONE of the first Lamborghinis ever built is up for auction and is expected to fetch a fortune.

The 1964 Lamborghini 350 GT is one of just 50 of its kind and will go on sale at RM Sotheby’s next month.

The 350 GT was Lamborghini’s first production car, built to take on and beat Ferrari.

It was introduced at the 1964 Geneva Motor Show, where it wowed the crowds.

However, only about 120 350 GTs were built and only 50 had a special aluminum body.

This car is one of those 50 and is for sale in perfect condition.

After being sold to its first owner in Switzerland in 1965, it was brought to the USA by its second owner in 1974.

Between 2017 and 2019 it had a huge $90,000 restoration.

The 350 GT is a four-seater with a 3.5-liter V12 engine that produces around 280 hp.

It can sprint from standstill to 100 km/h in 6.8 seconds and continue to 250 km/h – amazing figures for 1964.

RM Sotheby’s will sell the 350 GT at its Paris auction on February 1, 2023.
