1968-1970 LAMBORGHINI Islero specifications Classic and Performance Car

The Islero was introduced to the public at the 1968 Geneva Motor Show. It was not as aggressive as the Espada or Miura, catering more for the grand touring crowd. However, it did offer luxurious benefits such as air conditioning and larger interior, and was designed with one eye on the American market. An S version followed in 1969 which was shortlived, with only 100 being produced. The Islero is named after a fighting bull that killed the famous matador Manuel Rodriquez in August of 1947.
