Silhouette (55 Made 1976-79)

The targa-topped Silhouette was first introduced to the public at the 1976 Geneva Motor Show. It was a further development of the Urraco model. The 2+2 seating was reduced to only 2 seats with a small shelf behind the seats that would accomodate the removable targa top or be used for stowing additional small baggage.

The Silhouette was not a terrifically successful development of the Urraco with only 55 examples being made. This was due more than likely to Lamborghini's financial troubles at the time rather than any fault of the car's. In later years the Silhouette would become quite desireable to collectors of Lamborghinis due to the low numbers made. For many years after the Silhouette remained the lowest production model variant ever made by Lamborghini. Even today values remain higher for this lesser Urraco incarnation than the more fully developed Jalpa model.
