The Lamborghini Jalpa made its public debut at the March 1981 Geneva Auto Show; joining the Countach, this open coupe (removable “Targa-style” roof section) has been referred to as Lamborghini’s “practical exotic car.”
The Jalpa was penned by Marcello Gandini of Carozzeria Bertone, who designed many preceding Lamborghini’s. A new “flying buttress” roofline extension, along either side of the engine bay, created a sharp fastback profile featuring jutting air intakes and uncompromising lines to create a car that looks purposeful and intimidating.
The November 1982 issue of Road & Track magazine featured the Jalpa on the cover and commented that “Exotic automobiles are wonderfully exciting. They provoke emotional responses among car enthusiasts that often transcend all rational considerations.” They continued that people “go crazy over a swoopy, low exotic car whose rumbling exhaust note synchronizes with their pulse rate.”
The magnificent Lamborghini featured here is finished in the highly desired Rossa Red over Tan leather interior. Meticulously maintained, this investment-grade Jalpa is among one of the finest examples you find on the market today with only 4685 actual miles this would be the perfect example to add to any premier collection, for the most particular collector investor enthusiasts who demand the very best.
