This is the only lamborghini 400 GT Monza in existence.
The Lamborghini 400 GT Interim Monza was a one-off 2+2 seated sports car from Italian manufacturer Lamborghini. It was based on their 400 GT, but featured unique bodywork by Neri and Bonacini.
Giorgio Neri and Luciano Bonacini, who were already previously known for their work on the "Nembo" series of Ferraris, had been previously retained by Ferruccio Lamborghini to build the first prototype Lamborghini chassis and engine, the 350 GTV. They had acted as Lamborghini's chassis supplier, before turning that job over to Marchesi once production of the 350 GT was underway. Neri and Bonacini then turned their hand into their interpretation of a high speed Lamborghini GT sports car.
Originally meant to be called the "400 GT Neri and Bonacini" the name was simply shortened to "Monza". The car was reportedly built for an American client for the possibility of racing it in Le Mans. However, homologation problems put a quick end to that plan. The car was eventually sold of at the Barcelona Motor Show to a wealthy Spaniard, where it remained until the owner died in the early 1990s. In 1996, Brooks (now Bonhams) was contacted by the family of the now deceased owner to appraise some other cars, when the 400 GT was discovered in storage. After nine years of negotiations, the car was finally put up for auction at Bonhams for a reported £160,000 to a UK collector.

Miura Spinto Veloce (SV) is the final and most developed version of Lamborghini's seminal supercar. Like all Miuras, it has an exotic specification and sleek profile which define Lamborghini's image more than any other model. It's common to hear the Miura described as the world's first supercar but we prefer to expand on this by calling it the first modern supercar since the Ferrari 275 GTB and Mercedes 300 SL came immediately before it.

The DeTomaso Pantera. I remember my neighbors having one of these as a kid, and just hearing that big OHV V8 start up on the occasional Saturday morning was amazing. Some kids like cereal and cartoons on a Saturday morning. Me? I was always ready to go and have my eardrums blown out (not to mention getting high as all hell off the unburnt fuel belching out of the exhaust) by 351 cubic inches of Cleveland goodness.

The Lamborghini Countach is a mid-engined supercar that was produced by Italian automaker Lamborghini from 1974 to 1990. Its design both pioneered and popularized the wedge-shaped, sharply angled look popular in many high performance sports cars. The "cabin-forward" design concept, which pushes the passenger compartment forward in order to accommodate a larger engine, was also popularized by the Countach.
