Cruising Las Vegas in a Classic Lamborghini

Sep 10, 2008
One of the must-drive classic GTs, by far, is the Lamborghini 400 GT. It is one the first few car models ever released by the renowned Italian truck manufacturer, Lamborghini. First introduced at the 1966 Geneva Auto Show, it was one of the first series of coupes produced by the company to rival the Ferraris and Maseratis. Only a few of this model was ever produced, which makes it one of the most sought-after exotic cars all over the world. With its sleek and elegant vintage look, excellent driving and road handling, and ultra-high performance, the Lamborghini 400 GT would sure be an exhilarating ride from Las Vegas to anywhere in the United States.

Compared to its predecessor, the 350 GT, 400 GT was built with a longer wheelbase, durable steel coachwork, with a modified look evident in its longer hood to accommodate the engine, a scaled back rear window, four circular headlights, and a slightly higher roof to provide more interior room.
Equipped with a 3929 cc 4.0 L engine it kicks off 320 bph at 6500 rpm with 276 lb-ft of torque at 4500rpm, making it one of the most desirable sports car of its time. The coupe had enough power to generate to almost 160 mph. Only twenty-three units of this coupe were produced from 1966 until 1967. Twenty units were steel bodied while three were bodied in Superleggera.

Another version of the 400 GT was also released. This two-door coupe was modified to not only accommodate two, but four passengers. It was dubbed as the 400 GT 2+2. However, there were very minor difference between the 400 GT and the 400 GT 2+2 engine-wise as well as in the overall structure. Two hundred twenty four units were produced during 1966 to 1968, including five right-hand drive units.

The production of these GTs were limited due to the fact that it was hand-built in the factory at Sant'Agata, Italy . Now, having one would surely be impressive. But if you are having difficulties finding one to purchase, then why don't you rent one? There are practically car rentals anywhere in the world. Surely there's bound to be several Lamborghini GTs available for you to drive. Now, just imagine cruising around Las Vegas or perhaps Paris in a classic Lamborghini GT. It would definitely make your visit to these popular places a remarkable one.

Moreover, with the growing car rental industry, it is now possible for almost anyone to drive their dream cars, albeit how short-lived, as well as make certain occasions in their lives extra special. Also, this industry makes it more convenient for people to travel from one place to another, in their own pace while on a vacation or on a business trip in a foreign land.
