Description

German title
Chassis no. 10442
Engine no. 41006

- Original engine and colour
- Superb condition
- Rare, interesting model

Delivered new on 2 February 1973 in New York, this Lamborghini Jarama stands out on account of its low mileage, with just 9026 miles (14,525 km) recorded, which seems to be the original one. It was bought by its current owner in 2013, when it belonged to an ophthalmologist from Wisconsin. The car had been repainted orange and since then its paintwork has been restored to a grey metallic corresponding to its original finish by Carrozzeria Guerra, Lugo. In recent years, a number of technical jobs have been carried out on the car by Top Motors in Italy. The headlamps and lights have been replaced to conform to European legislation. The exhaust has been refurbished, along with the braking system and air conditioning compressor. The Jarama, which still has its original engine, underwent a further full service in 2017.
This GTS model is of interest as it is rare, with just 152 cars built, and features a number of improvements to its appearance compared with the earlier versions: a new look to the interior, improved air conditioning and a new version of the quad-cam 4-litre V12, producing 365 bhp at 7500 rpm. It is a perfect four-seat grand tourer, less radical than the Muira and easier to use than the Espada.
The car comes with a documented service history, its original jack and toolkit, an owner's manual, two sets of keys and a CD showing photos of its restoration. Thanks to its faultless condition, this Jarama does justice to a model which deserves to be better known.
