Named after the Jarama bullfighting region in Spain, the 2+2 Lamborghini sportscar was designed by Bertone’s Marcello Gandini. It was introduced in 1970 as a replacement to the Islero with the Italian company claiming at the time that it was conceived for the “gentleman driver”.
The first Jarama, built from 1970 to 1973, was powered by a 4.0-liter V12 engine with 350HP matched to a five-speed manual gearbox.
The Jarama GTS featured here was presented in 1973 and remained in production until 1976. Changes over the first model included an exterior makeover, a completely restyled interior and a more powerful version of the V12 engine delivering 365HP as well as the availability of an optional automatic transmission.
According to Lamborghini, a total of 176 Jarama and 152 Jarama GTS cars were built from 1970 to 1976.
