1976-1979 LAMBORGHINI Silhouette P300 specifications Classic 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.
