When Ferruccio Lamborghini founded his company in 1963 his goal was to create the perfect sports car. Since then, Lamborghini started the tradition of creating models with V12 engines, which are characterized by sound, acceleration capacity and performance. After developing the first Lamborghini V12, other models made their appearances such as the 400 GT (1966) that had a 4.0-litre 12-cylinder producing 320 hp at 6,500 rpm and a top speed of 270 km / h. Lamborghini recognized that the further the engine is placed towards the centre of the car, the better the weight distribution is achieved.
