The Lamborghini Jarama was not named after the famous race-track outside of Madrid but after the Spanish district made famous for their breeding of fighting Bulls. Introduced at the Geneva Motor Show during the spring of 1970 and styled by the iconic Marcello Gandini, famous for the Miura and Countach designs.
The body was designed and made by Bertone in its Grugliasco plant and assembled by Marazzi on a shortened Espada chassis. The drive train remained the same as the Espada’s. The Jarama was a very fast, easy to drive car especially when covering long distances thanks to its stability at high speeds. It was indeed Lamborghini’s best GT of its time, its production was limited to 177 cars making it one of the rarest Lamborghini cars.
The car on offer, chassis number 10072 was sold new to Mr. Bernasconi of Lugano, Switzerland on 16th March 1971. Delivered in silver with a black leather interior it then received an original blue “blue notte” Jarama paint job during its life in Germany.
The car was sold to a German collector in 2016 and duly sent to Auto-Kremer in Bonn, Germany, known for their excellent Lamborghini restorations. The bodywork and engine have been fondly restored. The interior, however, was in very good condition and is still presented in original order. The car has only around 200kms since the restoration.
This exceptional Jamara presents an opportunity to acquire what must be one of the best Jaramas in the world, it is in excellent condition overall, this is a fantastic example of one of the rarest Lamborghinis of the 1970’s.The car has German papers and TUV documents. All taxes and duties for the EU have been paid.
