LAMBORGHINI SILHOUETTE

2-door 2-seater 'Targa' coupé.

Re-done Urraco, still by Bertone, more of a specialised openable-top two-seater, with P300 power (265bhp), and 160mph top speed. Styling suffered from excess of aerodynamic appendages. Less smooth than Urraco, more brutal. Like Countach, still with excellent style and handling balance. Produced when corporate fortunes had slumped, sold only very slowly, and dropped in two years. For young bloods today, a viable alternative to the 308GTS Ferrari? But are there any in the UK?
