In 1965, Zagato was viewed as a top configuration organization, so it is straightforward why they chose a similarly honorable undercarriage to outline and construct another body on. This configuration turned into the Lamborghini 3500 GTZ, the new body was mounted on a 10 cm abbreviated body taken from the 350 GT, and was exhibited on the 1965 London Auto Show, completed in white over a dark plastic (vinyl) inside, this was Engine number 0310 with engine number 0301.
Zagota was thought to be a noteworthy configuration organization at the time, and in 1965 this organization chose to choose another body with a respectable body to make the Lamborghini 3500 GTZ. A really uncommon vehicle, the 3500 GTZ was one of just two autos each assembled. In an outline that took after before Ferrari 250 GTOs, Ercole Spada was the virtuoso behind this progressive configuration.
Initially presented at the November 1965 London Auto demonstrate, the 3500 GTZ body was set on 10 cm abbreviated skeleton from the 350 GT. The completed item looked entirely unbalanced, in white over a dark plastic vinyl inside, the 3500 GTZ was considered to ‘be deficient in identity in the front’. One of the models ever delivered highlighted white over a dark plastic vinyl inside and the second had a silver over dark inside.
The 3500 GTZ could accomplish 0-60 mph in marginally 5.8 seconds, 1-100mph in 14.9 seconds, and had a top rate of 149 mph. With a mpg of 16.5 mpg, the 3500 GTZ had motor force of 320bhp and torque of 277lb.ft. The suspension front undercarriage was twofold wishbones with curl springs over dampers and had an against move bar, and the back suspension included twofold wishbones, additionally with loop springs over dampers. The transmission of the Lamborghini 3500 GTZ was a 5-speed manual. With a length of 4300mm and width of 1640mm, the 3500 GTZ had a wheelbase of 2450mm, a weight of 1050kgs and a general stature of 1220mm.
Despite the fact that the 3500 GT was thought to be one of Zagato’s best outlines, it did not have the allure and stunning looks of the Berlinetta. Lamentably Lamborghini’s administration despised the outline, since it looked excessively comparable, making it impossible to its forthcoming Miura and the present 250GTO.
