Relive The History Of Automobili Lamborghini On The Ice At St. Moritz

Enjoy the rich and storied history of Automobili Lamborghini on the ice

Automobili Lamborghini participated in The I.C.E. (International Concours of Elegance, organized on the frozen lake of St. Moritz on 23 and 24 February, for the second year in a row. The brand was represented by Lamborghini Polo Storico, the point of reference for all international Lamborghini enthusiasts and collectors, many of which were welcomed at the event.


During the event, Automobili Lamborghini showcased two cars from its Sant’Agata Bolognese museum collection, namely a 1973 Jarama GTS, ready for a weekend in the snow complete with ski rack, skis and toboggan, and a 1968 400 GT 2+2, both important cars in the company’s history.

Moreover, although representative of different decades, the 1960s with its rounded shapes and the 1970s with its characteristic angular design, both Lamborghini 2+2s featured in St. Moritz are equipped with the same power plant, the legendary 4-litre V-12, with twin overhead camshafts in the front longitudinal position.


The Jarama GT was presented at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1970. It was Lamborghini’s new GT 2+2, created to replace the Islero since it retains the mechanics. The ultra-modern body style is the work of Carrozzeria Bertone, and is a perfect expression of the automotive shapes that would characterize the 1970s.

Its design allows it to accommodate two adults and two children in the back seat, and several pieces of luggage. One of the stylistic features of the Jarama are the eyelids that cover the front headlights when not in use, a unique feature in the entire history of Lamborghini production.


On top of that, a total of 327 units were produced, specifically 177 GTs and 150 GTSs. The 1973 GTS on display in St. Moritz, now owned by Automobili Lamborghini, was sold new in Sicily and is in its original configuration with Blu Tahiti body and mustard-yellow interior.

In 1966 the 400 GT was presented at the Geneva Motor Show, slightly revised in its lines compared to the 350 GT, especially in the rear part of the body, raised by 6.5 centimeters to become a 2+2 and equipped with the 12-cylinder engine increased to 4 liters, delivering 320 hp at 6500 rpm thanks to the increased bore.

The 400 GT 2+2 on show in St. Moritz was delivered in March 1968 to the Grand Garage des Nations in Geneva, in the Grigio Saint Vincent livery with tobacco-brown interior and is now part of the collection of the Automobili Lamborghini Museum. Both beautiful cars definitely stole the show.
