Along with the strong front fascia, there are a lot of beautiful cues that make the design language distinctly Lamborghini. You might notice the fastback/hatchback styling which has made it a very unique vehicle.

At the end of the day, the two opinions both refer to the car’s very distinct exterior.
Perhaps it’s the fact that not many manufacturers utilize the style or it could be the rarity that makes it so rare to see. Only about 1,227 cars were ever made with the name and even fewer were produced as a 400 GT, like the one shown in a YouTube video from a few months ago. Altogether, these models were pretty crazy and rare even for their time which is even better when you consider the 4.0-liter V12 and enough seats for three passengers along with the driver.
