Do half a million miles in a Lamborghini classic?

Imagine the situation. You’re the owner of a beautiful Lamborghini 400 GT, which you bought made already in the distant year of 1972, with just about 23,000 miles on the odometer, the equivalent of little more than 35,000 kilometres in the metric system. In a GT car the luxurious and comfortable as this, there are not too many kilometers. You fell in love of the car, and you’ve finished doing half a million miles with one of the classic best enjoyed. We don’t want queens garage, we want cars with stories to tell. This is their story.

The Lamborghini 400 GT was the successor to the Lamborghini 350 GT, and only 247 units were manufactured in the late 60’s.

Jack Ridell bought his Lamborghini 400 GT-1967 – only 5 years later, for just 6.250 dollars. Adjusting for inflation, are just 35,000 current dollars. The price of a classic like this is very upper today, but I doubt that there are some 400 GT with more miles in existence. In the words of Ridell, the secret to its excellent current state has been maintained scrupulous, and the fact that the car has been driven on a regular basis. A motor is made to move, to do kilometres.

And that is what this 400 GT has done, already serving half a million. A figure of merit, especially for a classic Italian. V12 4.0-liter develops 360 HP, which pass into the soil through a box of changes of five relationships, which occasionally fails. Ridell not plan to stop doing kilometers with Lamborghini, although some will say that is crazy, thus adversely affecting the value of your car. What is certain is that few owners have enjoyed a Lamborghini as Jack Ridell, and that is priceless.
