Lamborghini - Lamborghini Jarama

The Lamborghini Jarama 400 GT was the last V12 Grand Tourismo Lamborghini. Bertone and Gandini had already been responsible for the design of the Muira and Espada.  Jarama was their project for Lamborghini, based on a shorter wheelbase version of the existing Espada. The production car got some criticisms for bodywork fit quality and dashboard layout and it's weight, so for 1971 the revised Jarama 400GTS had more quoted power, revised instrument positioning and power steering option. The Jarama 400GTs quoted dry weight was 1,460kg which was 165kg lighter than the longer wheelbase Espada.

To sum up, although not a commercially popular car as far as the number of cars sold, it is interestingly the only car Ferrucio Lamborghini had new from the factory (his other cars being previously used). In an interview in T&CC for January 1991 he said, "I preferred the Jarama to all the others, because it is the perfect compromise between the Muira and Espada. The Muira is a sport car for the young at heart who wants to go like hell and love to be seen. Myself I considered the Muira too extrovert after a while. In turn the Espada was my Rolls Royce: still quite fast, but also large and comfortable. The Jarama is the perfect car if you want just one car."
