1970 Lamborghini Jarama 400

Think of the Lamborghini Jarama as a Lamborghini Islero version 2.o. It had a shorter chassis to meet U.S. standards (the main reason it was commissioned in the first place), shortened by almost 11 inches.

The original GT had a V12 with 350 bhp and was followed by the GTS that had 365 bhp. The GTS also had some more body modifications, a different interior dashboard, power assisted steering, removable roof panels, and an automatic transmission as an option. A total of 328 Jaramas were built.
