1987 LAMBORGHINI JALPA
--Pearl White with Red leather with White piping and Red carpeting, 26,000 kilometers/16,000 miles, 3.5 liter V8 with a 5-Speed Manual Transmission.
The name Jalpa came from a famous breed of fighting bulls similar to other named Lamborghinis. The Jalpa was designed by Bertone, and was the entry level ticket to Lamborghini as it was sold along-side the flagship V12 Countach in the late 1980s. Powering the Jalpa was a 3.5 liter, double overhead camshaft version of the V8 engine used in the predecessor Silhouette model on which it was based. The V8 produced 255 bhp 225 lb·ft of torque. Compared to the Countach, the Jalpa was much easier to drive, having better visibility and being more manageable in traffic and at slow speeds. Only 410 Jalpas were produced as Lamborghini had been through some financial troubles in the 1980s. Chrysler’s purchase of Lamborghini in 1987 ended the Jalpa’s production in 1988.
This 1987 Lamborghini Jalpa has been a well-cared for car. Of the Jalpas that have survived, very few are as well sorted as this example. The interior features air conditioning and an open gate shifter for the five-speed manual gearbox with a reverse lockout. This Jalpa runs and drives great while shifting very smoothly. The targa top fits very well and also fits perfectly behind the seats for storage during spirited driving. This Jalpa’s most recent owner has a vast collection of cars of which he pampers with enthusiasm and preservation.
