Giugiaro's Lamborghini Design Released after 50 years

Giugiaro Lamborghini Design

In the early 1960s, Lamborghini was making tractors but the old Ferruccio was bent on showing up Enzo Ferrari with a sportscar of his own. A number of design houses like Pininfarina, Ghia, Vignale and Michelotti vied for the contract and submitted proposals. Among these Carrozzeria Touring won out with the 350 GT, based on the work of former Bertone stylist Franco Scaglione.

After fifty years, the original design submitted by a young Giorgetto Giugiaro has been released. Giugiaro's son Fabrizio digitized his father's sketches, milled them into a model, painted it yellow, detailed the body and put it on a set of period-correct Borrani wires.
