Urraco P300 Tipo 111 by Bertone





The car is a 2+2 coupé with body designed by Marcello Gandini, at the time working for Carrozzeria Bertone. Rather than being another supercar, like the Lamborghini Miura, the Urraco was more affordable, an alternative to the contemporary Ferrari Dino and Maserati Merak.

When production ceased in 1979, 791 Urracos had been built. Twenty-one of these were Urraco P111 (P250 Tipo 111) for the American market. In order to comply with American regulations, these cars had larger front bumpers and emissions controls, the latter resulting in less horsepower for the American version. The other Urraco versions were the Urraco P200, Urraco P250 and Urraco P300 with 2 litre, 2.5 litre, and 3 litre V-8 respectively.

With the launch of the P300 version in 1975, the Urraco became a mechanical masterpiece, as well as an aesthetic work of art. Clearly superior to the P250, the P300 retained the advanced design, while adopting a new V8 4-cam 3-litre engine that produced 265 bhp at 7800 rpm. What's more, it was a rare car, with just 205 examples built.

Both the Lamborghini Silhouette, with its detachable roof panel, and its successor Lamborghini Jalpa, with a 3.5 litre V-8 engine, were based upon the Urraco.
