Paul McCartney’s Lamborghini Is For Sale, Not A Bad Hamptons Ride

A Lamborghini 400 GT 2+2 is for sale and its original owner is Paul McCartney. Sellers of the car are expecting to get around $200,000 when the final sale of it goes through. Amagansett resident Paul McCartney owned the car for about three years.

The car auction will take place at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in West Sussex on July 1.

The Lamborghini 400GT is the name given to two gran tourismos produced by Italian manufacturer Lamborghini.

The first 400GT, commonly referred to as simply the 400GT or 400GT Interim, was essentially the older 350GT featuring an enlarged, 3929 cc (240 c.i.) V12 engine, with a power output of 320 bhp (239 kW). Twenty-three of these cars were built, with three featuring aluminium bodywork.

The second 400GT, commonly known as the 400GT 2+2, had a longer wheelbase, different roofline, and minor sheetmetal changes compared to the 350GT and first 400GT. It was first presented at the 1966 Geneva Auto Show. The larger body shape enabled the +2 seating to be installed in the rear, where the 350GT only had room for luggage or +1 seating. The bodywork was designed by Carrozzeria Touring. The 400GT 2+2 also had a Lamborghini designed gearbox, with Porsche style synchromesh on all gears, which greatly improved the drivetrain.
