The Lamborghini Jalpa was produced between 1982 and 1988 and was a stylistic evolution of the Lamborghini Silhouette. The name Jalpa came from a breed of fighting bulls, like the Urraco before and the following Gallardo. Fitted with a 3.5-liter, double overhead camshaft V8, the Jalpa had a power output of 255 hp and a top speed of 145 mph. 0 to 60 mph were reached in 6 seconds, making the Jalpa a quite enjoyable vehicle. Also designed by Bertone, the Jalpa offered a more affordable solution than other models such as the flagship Countach. Thanks to great visibility and increased low speed drivability, the Jalpa was also a more practical and easy option. In 1984, the black bumpers, air intakes, and engine cover were replaced by body-color painted parts. Round taillights also replaced the rectangular taillights borrowed from the Silhouette.
The Lamborghini Jalpa had a limited success and only 420 units were made throughout the production run. However, it was Lamborghinis most successful V8 to date and the model was made popular by starring in 1985 Rocky IV where Rocky was driving a black Jalpa.
