An Italian muscle car, the 3500GT combined stylish lines with a highly strung and powerful straight-six engine. The car was more to be enjoyed as a grand tourer than a circuit machine for the street, as its steering wasn't very communicative. It used a tubular steel chassis consisting of two main members running the length of the car with outriggers along the sills. To the front sat a double wishbone arrangement and at the rear, leaf springs were highest tech option at the time. The engine was a twin-cam design made in alloy and was ahead of its time by using twin spark plugs fired by twin coil, plus mechanical fuel injection by Lucas. For 1958 the 3500GT was one very quick car in a straight line, beating both the Aston DB4 and Ferrari 250 Lusso. For that reason it's a highly sought after classic worth many times more than its original sale price.
