£115000 The Jalpa we have for sale is only of only 35 RHD cars produced, and possibly the lowest mileage known to exist, Purchased in 1988 by the last owner from Guy Salmon, Thames Ditton with only 16178 Kms recorded, it has now covered only 44458 Kms (27786 miles) from new, the mileage and service being confirmed by the service records and owners notes. The car is complete with driver’s wallet, containing the handbook and service book, copy previous V5. The owner moved to Guernsey in 1995, the car following in 1999, by 2007 the mileage had increased to 43553 Kms, with very little use over the 10 years, resulting in the mileage today. The Jalpa was a development of the earlier Silhouette intended to fill a role as a more "affordable" Lamborghini, being much less expensive than the flagship Countach and being also designed by Bertone. Compared to the Countach, the Jalpa was much easier to drive, having better visibility and being more tractable in heavy traffic and at slow speeds. The Jalpa was fitted with a 3.5 L (210 cu in) double overhead camshaft version of the V8 engine used in the Silhouette on which it was based. The version used in the Jalpa produced 255 hp (190 kW; 259 PS)
--Pearl White with Red leather with White piping and Red carpeting, 26,000 kilometers/16,000 miles, 3.5 liter V8 with a 5-Speed Manual Transmission. The name Jalpa came from a famous breed of fighting bulls similar to other named Lamborghinis. The Jalpa was designed by Bertone, and was the entry level ticket to Lamborghini as it was sold along-side the flagship V12 Countach in the late 1980s. Powering the Jalpa was a 3.5 liter, double overhead camshaft version of the V8 engine used in the predecessor Silhouette model on which it was based. The V8 produced 255 bhp 225 lb·ft of torque. Compared to the Countach, the Jalpa was much easier to drive, having better visibility and being more manageable in traffic and at slow speeds. Only 410 Jalpas were produced as Lamborghini had been through some financial troubles in the 1980s. Chrysler’s purchase of Lamborghini in 1987 ended the Jalpa’s production in 1988. This 1987 Lamborghini Jalpa has been a well-cared for car. Of the Jalpas that have survived, very few are as well sorted as this example. The interior features air conditioning and an open gate shifter for the five-speed manual gearbox with a reverse lockout. This Jalpa runs and driv

The V-8 Lamborghini Jalpa replaced the Urraco and the Silhouette in 1981, and sold alongside the V-12 Countach as Lamborghini’s smaller offering throughout the 1980s. In true Lamborghini fashion, the Jalpa was also named after a breed of fighting bull and featured aggressive, eye-catching wedge-shaped bodywork, in this case by Bertone. Powering this ‘junior’ Lamborghini was a 3.5-liter V-8 fed by Weber carburetors that produced 255 horsepower, giving the Jalpa a top speed of somewhere in the range of 150 miles per hour and a zero to sixty time of well under seven seconds. Compared to the Audi-backed company of today, Lamborghini was still a small-scale manufacturer in the 1980s, and only around 400 examples of the Jalpa were produced from 1981 until the takeover by Chrysler at the end of the decade. Of the cars that have survived, very few are as well preserved or as well sorted as this sleek 1988 Jalpa. As a 1988 car, it is one of the very last produced and is finished in black with black leather seats and tan door panels and carpets. The interior also features air conditioning, a CD player and an open gate shifter for the five-speed gearbox. The odometer shows 25,378 actual miles and overall this is a beautiful, original and honest car. Recent work has included ignition wires, exhaust manifold and newer front tires, but otherwise it has been a reliable, seldom used sports car. Its most recent owner was a professional foreign car mechanic who kept a small collection that he pampered with both enthusiasm and intimate knowledge of what the cars needed. The package includes the original warranty bookets and a parts manual. From its alloy wheels to its removable targa roof, this is an attractive, enjoyable and remarkably original example of one of Lamborghini’s rarer models.
