Paul McCartney's 1967 Lamborghini 400 GT Is Up For Sale


Last week, we saw John Lennon’s 1969 Monkey Bike go up for auction; this week, another Beatles memorabilia is available to purchase: Sir Paul McCartney‘s 1967 Lamborghini 400 GT 2+2 coupé. The glamorous vintage car was delivered to Paul McCartney during the height of The Beatles‘ popularity. It’s believed to be one of the four imported into the UK via air freight by British United Air Ferries and its previous owner — a well-known automobile collector — bought the car twice, selling it in 1989 only to reacquire it in 1996.

This classic Italian car has a wine red finish with beige pigskin interiors. Its 4.0L V12 engine offers a broad range of smooth torque that achieves high levels of performance “without noise, fuss, temperament or drama,” according to Autocar magazine. The storied vehicle comes with accompanying documentation such as sundry bills, a copy of the old UK V5 registration and an old-style logbook.

Check out Paul McCartney’s 1967 Lamborghini 400 GT above and head over to Bonhams’ website for more details. For more automobile eye candy, Morgan Motor Company debuted its extremely limited bespoke Aero GT sports car.

The Lamborghini Huracán Gets a Track-Ready Body Upgrade and High-Tech Tune

Through the addition of a carbon aerodynamic-enhancement kit, high-tech forged wheels and a twin-supercharger V-10 engine, customisation specialist Novitec Torado has given the Lamborghini Huracán RWD Coupe a punchy new makeover. Already responsible for a number of high-performance updates to the Huracán, the German-based company has added lightweight carbon components that have been wind-tunnel tested, a twin-supercharger conversion that bumps peak power to 611kW/830hp and high-performance exhaust systems, while a competition interior with carbon racing seats and rollover cage are also available for track use. With tweaked bodywork and addition of a spoiler, this customisation has resulted in a leaner, race-ready appearance to what many already believe to be one of Lamborghini’s sportiest models.

Mansory x Lamborghini Huracán "Torofeo"

Mansory has tapped a superpowered Lambo for customization once again, this time joining the Italian sports car manufacturer for a “Torofeo” edition of the Huracán. Marking the second timethe German customizer has taken on the Gallardo successor, the “Torofeo” follows in the footsteps of the “Carbonado” edition of the Aventador, covering the Huracán’s exterior in sleek carbon fiber. In typical Mansory fashion, however, the customization isn’t limited to the lightweight exterior construction. The newly designed body has been complemented with new designs for the headlights, air intakes, front apron, front lip, side skirts, mirror housing, wheel arches, finned safety glass bonnet, rear spoiler, diffuser and rear apron — all of which comes together to not only offer an enhanced aesthetic, but improved downforce. Under the hood sits a rebuilt 5.2-liter V10 alongside two bearing-mounted turbochargers, which — in conjunction with a newly aligned exhaust system — results in increased performance specs of 1,250 hp at 8,250 rpm and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.7 seconds. Finally, the interior itself even receives a refined makeover, with leather and Alcantara covering the seats and dash along with a new sport airbag steering wheel, repositioned starter button, aluminum foot pedals and carbon fiber applications throughout.

The “Torofeo” Huracán is on display now at IAA in Frankfurt.
