1974 Lamborghini Bravo Concept

Needing a replacement for the Urraco, Lamborghini had Bertone design the Bravo concept car as a possible replacement.

The Bravo was first seen at the 1974 Turin Motor Show and was extensively tested before becoming a permanent feature of the Bertone collection.

Powering the rear wheels was a 300 bhp V8 which was tested in the car over 40,000 miles.

Lamborghini neveer put this car into production, but features like the wheels and angular body lines did appear on the Silhouette and Countach.
