An abandoned Lamborghini Urraco has been spotted recently in the United Kingdom.
Classic supercars are said to have a glamorous life but things aren’t always what they seem to be as this particular model is proving. The vehicle in question is a Lamborghini Urraco which has been spotted looking like this in the United Kingdom recently. We have no backup story on how the exotic car ended up looking like this but it seems that rust has had the last of it. If you happen to know more about it, please feel free to share.
In the meantime we will remind you that the Lamborghini Urraco has been put together, in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy, between 1973 and 1979. The model in question was a 2+2 sports car which was shown originally at the Turin Auto Show, back in 1970, three years before its launch date. The vehicle had a transverse mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout and it stood at 4,250 mm in length, 1,760 mm in width and 1,160 mm in height, with a 2,450 mm wheelbase.
The Urraco has had its body designed by Marcello Gandini, which has been working at Carrozzeria Bertone at the time, and it was a more affordable alternative to the Miura and also a cheaper rival for the Ferrari Dino. It came with a 2.0 liter V8 engine, a 2.5 liter V8 engine or a 3.0 liter V8 engine, with 247 HP (184 kW) in its range-topping version and 180 HP (134 kW) in the entry-level. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) took 5.6 seconds in the 3.0L variant and top speed stood at 260 km/h (162 mph).
