White with Dark Blue Leather

Famous for their audacious, innovative, and impossible to ignore designs, Lamborghini remains the manufacture of choice for car enthusiast looking to make a motoring statement. Part of a long string of ground breaking super cars, the Jalpa was a development of the earlier Silhouette intended to fill a role as a more \"affordable\" Lamborghini, being much less expensive than the flagship Countach and being also designed by Bertone. Compared to the Countach, the Jalpa was much easier to drive, having better visibility and being more tractable in heavy traffic and at slow speeds. The name Jalpa came from a famous breed of fighting bulls, a tradition later followed with the Gallardo. The Jalpa was fitted with a 3.5 litre double overhead camshaft version of the V8 engine used in the Silhouette on which it was based. The version used in the Jalpa produced 255 hp at 7000 rpm. At the time of production, the Jalpa was Lamborghini's most successful V8 car to date, having sold 410 units.

This particular car is an extremely original, ultra low mileage example, showing just 4,758 KMS from new. It was sold new to Spain, where it remained with the original owner until 2012 when it was purchased for stock by Fantasy Junction. Save for some minor touch up to the front spoiler, the car retains its original paint. The interior is in wonderful condition, and is original throughout.

The driving experience confirms the mileage indicated as correct from new. The suspension bushings, shocks, steering system, and other controls all have the feel of a well cared for, exceedingly low mileage example. The engine starts easily, and provides ample power with a pleasing V8 exhaust note.

Included with the car is a fitted cover, a radio manual, the space saver spare wheel with tire, and a second set of keys.

As quoted by Chris Chilton in Classic Cars magazine, “The Jalpa can offer a less financially demanding introduction to the ownership of the Sant’ Agata Marque.” This exact Jalpa was given a multi page color photo feature in the “test drive” section of Coches Clasicos, a Spanish specialty car magazine.

Stressing preservation and low mileage, this affordable Lamborghini will be an ideal entry level car, welcome at motoring events worldwide, where it will surely be praised for its undisturbed nature.

This car will be sold on a California title only, with all U.S. duties paid. As a 1983 European specification car, this Jalpa is not eligible for road registration in California.
