Classic Lamborghinis are highly collectable and can be worth some pretty good money. It’s one thing seeing them at an elite car show, but a whole other thing seeing them driven hard, as intended when they were created. Spotting a 1973 Jarama GTS and 1968 400 GT 2+2 in the same place at the same time is a rare occurrence, they’re stylish classics with impressive specs. The 400 GT was first seen at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show, with slightly revised lines compared to the outgoing 350 GT, especially at the rear was raised by 6.5 cm to become a 2+2 and it was fitted with a 4.0 litre V12 that delivered 235 kW. With the 400 GT the V12 engine would become Lamborghini's signature engine, going on to equip all 12-cylinder cars produced in the following decade in Sant'Agata Bolognese. The 400 GT made use of a Lamborghini gearbox and diff, designed and produced in-house. The 400 GT 2+2 you see here that was on show in St. Moritz was delivered in March 1968 to the Grand Garage des Nations in Geneva and it’s in Grigio Saint Vincent livery with a tobacco-brown interior. The car is now part of the collection of the Automobili Lamborghini Museum. The Jarma GT was first seen at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1970, a 2+2 GT created to replace the Islero. The car features styling by the famed Carrozzeria Bertone, and perfectly expresses the automotive shapes that would characterize car styling throughout the 1970s. The Jarama is a proper Gran Turismo car made for comfortable, fast and pleasurable long-distance luxury driving. It can accommodate two adults and two children along with some luggage. A cool feature of the Jarama is a pair of eyelids that cover the headlights when the car is parked up, a unique feature in Lamborghini's entire production history. In 1972 the Jarama GTS arrived, using a modified version of the normally aspirated 4.0 litre V12 that now had 269 kW along with some aesthetic changes like the raised air intake on the hood, air intakes on the front fenders and the then newly-designed Campagnolo wheel rims. Inside there were new seats with contoured backrests allowing better room for the rear seats, an aluminum fascia to cover the dashboard, a new secondary button arrangement and standard power steering. Just 327 units were produced until 1976 - 177 GTs and 150 GTSs. This 1973 GTS on display in St. Moritz is owned by Automobili Lamborghini, it was sold new in Sicily and is still in the original configuration of Blu Tahiti paint with a mustard-yellow interior.

Automobili Lamborghini participated in The I.C.E. (International Concours of Elegance) that was held on the frozen St. Moritz lake on the last weekend of February where the House of Sant’Agata Bolognese was represented by Lamborghini Polo Storico, the point of reference for all international Lamborghini enthusiasts and collectors. Automobili Lamborghini showcased two cars from its Sant’Agata Bolognese museum collection, the aforementioned 1968 400 GT 2+2 and the 1973 Jarama GTS. “The I.C.E.” is now in its third edition and is already regarded as one of the most captivating events in the world of classic cars and as you can see from the images, makes for some of the best photo and video backgrounds on the planet. In addition, the Concours sees more than 50 cars entered to be judged not only by specialists in the field but also by artists and architects, although the main attraction of the event is the stage which is actually the frozen lake of St. Moritz in the Engadine valley. Alessandro Farmeschi, Global After Sales Director of Automobili Lamborghini, remarked, “Polo Storico’s participation in The I.C.E. was an opportunity to meet our customers and enthusiasts of classic Lamborghini models in a truly unique setting. This event is close to our own spirit and our way of celebrating the passion for our classic cars: beautiful to see but also fun and exciting to drive. It is an unusual context in which to see a historic Lamborghini, even more so when these are cars that are usually admired in our museum.” The visuals are amazing, and seeing these old timers being thrashed around in these conditions is just amazing, and is also something quite special. The place and event have definitely moved up by bucket list of locations to visit and shoot in.
