That is the prototype-the first Lamborghini car ever built. Production 350/400 GTs had more rounded lines and non hidden "frogeye" headlight pods. The chassis was used in the Islero due to the body manufacturer, Touring, going out of business in 1968. A friend of mine has owned a 400GT since 1978.

Frank Mundy, a well-known Hudson stock-car driver, also owned a 350 later in his life. Beautiful cars, really really really. The 350 GT was toned down, a little more subtle than the prototype.

That's a neat looking car (prototype and production car). B)

But I like the prototypes grille a lot more.

I think the prototype's entire front end looked better!

I don't know exactly why but I have always liked Lambos more than Ferraris. Maybe it is the different design sensibility. The 350 and 400 GTs and then the Miura consitute an incredible design legacy and then they followed with the Countach! Obviously Ferrari has the sporting heritage locked up big time but I still gravitate to Lambos.
