Lamborghini introduced the Jalpa P350in 1981, similar to the Silhouette, the Jalpa featured a more powerful 255 HP, DOHC, 3.5L V-8 engine, more aggressive styling and the Targa top. In 1984, subtle styling changes created a more modern look for Jalpa, which lasted until production ended in 1988. Only 410 Jalpas were ever constructed, far fewer than the Countach, and a much more useable exotic to drive.
From loving single ownership of 32 years.
This U.S. Specification example was completed in December 1987 and sold as a demo in October 1988 by Mark LaPrade's Maserati/Lotus to its first and only registered owner, Mr. Gaston of Starkville, Mississippi. The original MSRP of $69,850.00 was superseded by a supplemental dealer sticker of $75,345.00 ($164,000 in 2020 dollars). The extras were a Premium AM/FM Stereo $1,995.00 and "Market Adjustment" of $3,500.00. Finished in Siviglia Red and Champagne leather interior with contrasting piping. Gold Tecnomagnesio phone dial wheels, on Pirelli P7 tires. This magnificent Jalpa remains remarkably original and unrestored to this day. Interestingly post-delivery Mr. Gaston requested a factory rear spoiler be sent to him unpainted, this original wing remains with the car today.
Benefiting from single private lifelong ownership the Jalpa comes complete with its original Window Sticker, Odometer Statement, Original Invoice, Owner's Manual, Warranty & Maintenance Booklet, Alpine Radio Instructions and Warranty Card. Additionally, its original jack and wrench stow neatly in the emergency bag, including the tool roll, spare belts and fuse/bulb kit. The original O.Z space saver spare tire resides up front. The Lamborghini retains original decals, paint sticker, "381" Bertone body number stampings, glass, and Alpine radio. Displaying an attractive original look and feel the engine compartment and underside which have been nicely detailed retain much of the original factory applied cosmoline and hardware.
The L353 3.5L, 255 HP DOHC V-8 engine has compression of 165-170 PSI throughout all cylinders and is backed by the synchromesh 5-speed manual which shifts nicely while cold and warm. The front end has just recently received new koint shocks, as well as a brake service. These fantastic, hand-built machines are finally gaining traction in the collector car world with ease of drivability coupled with visual representation from the pinnacle of 1980's design and flamboyance. A true icon of the 80's this remarkable Jalpa 3.5L will make a great addition to any serious collection or will be the perfect first collector car.
