1976-1979 LAMBORGHINI Silhouette P300 specificationshttp://www.classicandperformancecar.comClassic and Performance CarClassic and Performance Car
Based on the Urraco P300, the Silhouette was an ultimately unsuccessful attempt to take on the Ferrari 308 GTS. An appealing looking car with tele-dial alloys and ultra-low profile tyres – just like a Countach – it wasn’t strong enough to make the grade. It fell by the wayside when Lamborghini went through horrendous financial problems during the late 1970s, a time when Sant Agata’s model range was reduced to the Countach only. With 54 built, the Silhouette is rare and rapidly gaining desirability – but not as nice to drive as a 308.
