The Lamborghini 400 GT 2+2 was launched in 1966, a mere three years after the founding of Automobili Lamborghini.
Sixty years ago to the date, the Beatles debuted their popular single “Love Me Do” to help make them the world’s most successful and influential band. The supercar professionals at Automobili Lamborghini pay tribute by embarking on a memorable London tour in a Lamborghini 400 GT 2+2. The special journey navigates the 1960s Italian supercar from Abbey Road Studios to Saville Row, with many iconic landmarks along the way. The 400 GT 2+2 plays a significant role in Beatles history, as one was parked out front of their last live show on the roof of the Saville Apple Corps headquarters. The Lamborghini 400 GT 2+2 parked on the street below featured a Rosso Alfa and Nero configuration, which is visible in director Peter Jackson’s recent award-winning Beatles documentary, Get Back.
The cameo proves to be consequential with all four band members being car enthusiasts, especially Sir Paul McCartney. The world-renowned bassist is a known fan of the 400 GT 2+2 and even is rumored to own one from numerous sources. In the latest Lamborghini video, English journalist Dylan Jones (who has interviewed Sir Paul McCartney on many occasions) retraces this fascinating journey to the Sixties to explore London’s influence on the songwriter and the era the Beatles shaped so profoundly.
