The Urraco of 1970 was the smaller brother of the fabulous Miura. It had, however, an advanced new steel chassis of near-monocoque construction with a transversely-mounted 220bhp V8 engine of 2,463cc which drove through a five speed transaxle.

The Urraco was more powerful than the Dino and could out-pace it. Further it was a 2+2 and, by general consent, its Bertone body was exceptional - most people would rate it more highly than Bertone's body for the later 2+2 Ferrari Dino GT4.

It was intended to sell in relatively large numbers, but soon after it reached production the entire market was hit by the OPEC oil crisis. Thus only 520 examples of the P250 were made, which was bad news for Lamborghini, but good news for buyers today seeking a comparatively rare car with pedigree, performance and stunning looks.

The 1974 example on offer today has had only three recorded owners from new and is finished in dark blue with a black leather interior. WLL 518M is described as in fair condition throughout but may need some recommissioning. However the engine has had a new cambelt recently fitted and the engine runs very well. The car is supplied with a V5 logbook, a number of invoices and service book.

A true Italian thoroughbred at exceptional value for money.
