  1. hey if u cant respect the design, respect 100hp+/litre. i know most of u guys couldnt give two shits, but for 1963, even for today, wow thats huge! by the way did anyone notice back in the 60's everyone used tiny ass v12s' the size of a v6?<!-- Signature -->

    yeah i noticed. now this car was truly engineered. over 100 hp/litre from a V12, and look at how light the car is. <!-- Signature -->

    Yeah, the weight was the first thing that jumped out at me. 2315 lbs is unbeleivable considering the technology/materials that were available to them at the time. It definately shows the engineering potential of lamborgini, this car even had an aluminum engine to save weight! Not the kind of thing you would expect from a car made in 1963.
