When the Lamborghini Jalpa was introduced in 1981 at the Geneva Motor Show, it replaced the Silhouette model. This 2-seat, targa-style coupe was the brand’s most successful V8 to date, thanks to its stunning and elegant design, high drivability, and the fact that it was fitted for the US market. With its 3.5-liter V8, the Jalpa produces a power output of 255 hp and reaches a top speed of 155 mph, going from 0 to 60 mph in 7.3 seconds. Post 1984, the Jalpa models features body color bumpers instead of the black parts and circular taillights. Nowadays, the Jalpa is a desirable and rare classic as only 416 units were sold throughout the production run.
The Lamborghini Jalpa is known to be well built, with a sturdy engine linked to a smooth five-speed synchromesh.
