The Lamborghini Jarama was not named after the famous race-track outside of Madrid but after the Spanish district made famous for their breeding of fighting Bulls. Introduced at the Geneva motor show during the spring of 1970 and styled by the iconic Marcello Gandini famous for the Miura and Countach designs. The design was deliberately slightly understated and unspectacular compared to Lamborghini´s other offerings. The result is a roomy, glassy coupé which still had a very aggressive stance suggesting power. The body was designed and made by Bertone in its Grugliasco plant and assembled by Marazzi on a shortened Espada chassis. The drive train remained the same as the Espada´s. The Jarama was a very fast, easy to drive car especially when covering long distances thanks to its stability at high speeds. It was indeed Lamborghini´s best GT of its time, its production was limited to 177 cars.

The car on offer, chassis number 10160 was sold new by Zürich Lamborghini dealer Garage Foitek on the 14 June 1971.Delivered in silver with a dark red leather interior it then received a dark green "Verde Scuro" paint during its Swiss life.
The car was sold to Germany in 2014 and was duly sent to Auto-Kremer in Bonn, Germany, known for their excellent Lamborghini restorations. The Bodywork and engine have been restored according to the pictures and invoices of the restoration. The interior, however was very good and was kept. In fact it has only covered around 200 kms since the restoration. Truly an opportunity to acquire what must be one of the best Jaramas in the world.
