Lamborghini Urraco looks just as spectacular as 50 years ago


Although not as famous as the Miura or Countach, the Urraco is one of the classic Lamborghini most coveted by collectors.

Presented at the Turin Auto Show at the end of October 1970, this model immediately stood out for its design and for having introduced very innovative technical solutions for the time.

With a 2 + 2 configuration coupe body, the Lamborghini Urraco also stood out for the center-mounted V8 rear engine and independent suspension, with MacPherson strut system at the front and rear, something unheard of in a mass production car.

Initially equipped with a 2.5-liter four-carb V8, the Urraco posted 220 hp at 7,800 rpm and a top speed of 245 km / h.

At 4.25 meters in length, the interiors of the Urraco were highly innovative in terms of the conformation of the dashboard, the position of the instruments and the domed steering wheel.

Introduced as P250 Urraco, where the “P” stood for the rear (rear) position of the engine, and 250 for engine capacity (2.5 liters), it was produced from 1970 to 1976.

While the P200 version had a 2.0-liter V8, with 182 hp. This option destined for the Italian market, was produced from 1975 to 1977.

There was also the P300 version that got an eight-cylinder only 3.0-liter and with a power of 265 hp. This variant was produced between 1975 and 1979.
