1975 Lamborghini Urraco P250 Coupe

£84,175

car description

In the early 1970’s, Lamborghini was looking to cash in on the success of the Porsche 911 and Dino 246GT. At the time, Lamborghinis were known for their V12 engines and exotic styling. The Miura was nearing the end of production, the Countach was still in development, and the only other models in the lineup were the big four seat Espada or the 2+2 Jarama. For their “entry level” sports car, Lamborghini designed an all-new V8 engine to be mounted transversely behind the seats. The 90 degree V8 was small at just 2.5 liters, but with four belt-driven cams and Weber carburetors, it made a healthy 220 horsepower at 7500 rpm. It was also compact, cleverly designed to accommodate the accessories in the middle of the “vee”. A 5-speed transaxle put power down through the rear wheels. Unlike earlier Lamborghinis, the Urraco employed unitary construction, rather than a traditional tubular space frame. Suspension was attached via subframes that were easily removable for service. The new chassis was wrapped in an attractive Bertone body that took a few details from the Miura, but remained totally individual. The Urraco was compact, not much bigger than the Dino, but thanks to the long wheelbase
