The 350 GT had an all-aluminium alloy V12 engine mated to a five-speed ZF manual transmission.The 350 GT engine is 3.5 liter V12 was essentially a race motor, potentially developing 400 horsepower at 11,000rpm.

The second engine is a fascinating 8.0-liter marine engine Lamborghini built. The engine has a displacement of 8.2 liters and the output is approximately 800 bhp.
This was to be offered in the Lamborghini LM002 SUV at one point, but engineers soon found that it was too big and heavy for a car.The marine engine is essentially a bigger version of the 3.5-liter V-12.Needless to say that the sound of this V12 engine is absolutely incredible.
