I traded one of my vintage V12 Ferrari's in a private deal for this iconic 2 seater. This car won best in show at Concorso Italiano in the early 2000's. It was best Lambo there 3 times. 4000 hr. restoration over 3.5 years. The restoration has held up well over the last decade. The paint is immaculate. It's a 1967 P400 but has upgraded S spec suspension and brakes, and has a split sump conversion of the matching numbers motor to SV specs. This car evokes the same emotions as a FGT or CGT. The engine note is visceral. One can see the design elements of the GT40 that were used by Gandini at Bertone.

My reaction was also " stunning". Don't want to steal an adjective, but I am so stunned I can't think of another appropriate word to describe the impact of such a timeless classic. Great trade. Enjoy. ( Not bad digs either. )

AJ. Awesome car. Saw a GT4 in Springfield at Cars n Coffe for Porsche folks today. He's has it a week. You will love it I'm sure.

Thanks guys. The stars lined up right on this deal for sure. Car was just delivered here last week. I'll post up some more pics after R10. Gotta hit the road in the AM!

Funny, my 9-year old was just asking me to buy one for his Gran Turismo game, because it is one of his favorite cars. He even has a model that looks like yours (see photo). Congratulations! Great addition to the collection.

AJ, did I see that car at Keels and Wheels a few years ago? My favorite color on a Muira! Good job its had the sump work done, they were notorious for crapping out when bits of gearbox met up with the engine.
Just about to head out, see you in Tulsa tonight

Love your Muira! A friend of mine just bought one at Monterey last week, definitely my all time favorite Lambo. BTW, nice 65 Big Block Corvette in the background too.
