The 1974 Lamborghini Jarama - Ferruccio Lamborghini's favorite model

Introduced in 1970 at the Geneva Motor Show, the Jarama was designed to meet US standards.

Instead of continuing the previous "Islero", Lamborghini decided to adapt a shortened version of the Espada chassis and to let Marcello Gandini the exterior style, largely shared with the Iso Lele, also designed by him. It was powered by the same 3.9 L (3,929 cc) Lamborghini V12 engine used in the Islero and Espada, heavily derived from the 400 GT.

The Jarama was Ferruccio Lamborghini's favorite model, in 1991 he stated "I preferred the Jarama to all the others, because it is the perfect compromise between the Miura and the Espada".

Lamborghini's personal Jarama S is on display at the official Lamborghini museum at the company's factory in Sant'Agata Bolognese, Italy. This 1974 Jarama is for sale in Houston, Texas.
