Built from 1973 to 1979, the Lamborghini Urraco was introduced at the 1970 Turin Motor Show. Ferruccio Lamborghini had been thinking about making a smaller car for a while and that’s what the Urraco was: a more compact and more affordable Lamborghini than the contemporary V12. Designed by Marcello Gandini at Bertone, the Urraco was a 2+2 coupe featuring a short hood, a distinctive grille, and a louvered back window. Instead of the brand’s famous V12, the Urraco was powered by a more compact and lighter 90-degree V8 with only one camshaft per cylinder. The engine and transmission were mounted transversely behind the cockpit and the car was equipped with the usual all-disc brakes and all-independent suspension system.
The direct competitor of the Ferrari Dino and Porsche 911, the Lamborghini Urraco had the benefits of a gorgeous body, great performance and 2 rear seatswhich weren’t the case of the competitors in the compact supercar category. Produced in low numbers, the 1974 Lamborghini Urraco is a rare classic that’s highly sought after by collectors.
