In 1970 Nuccio Bertone proposed the evolution of the Islero with the Jarama. Conceived for the “gentleman” driver, this car is an ideal mix of elegance and power. It was one of Ferruccio Lamborghini’s favorites who appreciated the excellent combination between the 365 HP and luxurious comfort, without the focussed attention that a Miura or an Espada stirred up. Besides 15 HP, the interior of the Jarama S version, presented in 1972, was completely restyled. Lamborghini made 328 units of the Jarama (Jarama 176 units and Jarama S 152 units).
Lamborghini Jarama made its official debut at the 1970 Geneva Salon. It was named after Jarama bullfighting region in Spain, but many believe it is named after the Jarama racing circuit near Madrid.
Jarama is the last front engined Lamborghini Coupe, but is also the third heaviest Lamborghini (3,480 lb)- after Espada (3230 lb) and LM002 (5,952 lb).
