The Jarama is one of those front-engined Lamborghinis from the early 1970s that seems to be obscure to even the most die hard car enthusiasts. Perhaps it’s time people start giving these coupes a second look. Designed to replace the Islero, this car was designed to meet new US regulations by way of employing a shortened Espada chassis with a version of the corporate V12 under the bonnet. These were fast cruisers, offered with both an automatic transmission, or, the more sporting 5-speed manual like our feature car for sale in New York that was brought to our attention by our reader Matt. A little over 300 Jaramas were built, which allows you to become a part of a very exclusive club.

The Lamborghini Jarama was manufactired 1970 and 1976. It was designed by Bertone and designer Marcelle Gandini. Introduced in 1970 at the Geneva Auto Show, the Jarama was a replacement model for the Islero. The Jarama was offered with various options including power assisted steering, removeable roof panels, automatic transmission and an “S” version from 1973-1976. In total 328 Jarama’s were manufactured, 171 GT’s and 157 GTS’s. They are extremely rare to find in excellent condition. They are a real Italian GT car that is usable and a pleasure to drive.
This Jarama GT has benefitted from a photo documented restoration by well-known marques specialists. It is in excellent-serviced and maintained condition throughout. It is complete with original tools, keys and every document and service document from day 1! Also included is the original Bill of Sale and the Original ownership document-title.
This is a rare opportunity to purchase a cost effective piece of Lamborghini history with seating for four.
I’ve always been a fan of the Islero’s coupe bodystyle, but the Jarama is also a favorite of mine, with its butch, fastback looks. It could almost be a Mach 1 Mustang’s Italian cousin. Values for good Jaramas of this vintage are ranging from $50,000 to $75,000. This one, then, is priced at the top of the range. My guess is that these early Lamborghinis can’t stay this cheap forever. Once they start to be discovered, I’d wager to say these cars will start changing hands in the low six figure range.
