This impressively original example of the rare Lamborghini Jarama benefits from 37 years of single ownership and is believed to be the last example built prior to the production shift to the Jarama GTS. As such, the Lamborghini features several transitional coachwork elements soon to appear on the Jarama GTS, including grilled fender strakes. The car is believed to be one of as few as eight Jaramas to be equipped with the desirable twin removable tops and among the last front-engined Lamborghinis with knock-off wheels.

Finished by the factory in Luci del Bosco (Bronze Metallic) paint and trimmed with Senape (Mustard) upholstery, this Lamborghini was purchased new by Angelo Pegno of Oyster Bay, New York; he retained possession until 2009 while accruing just over 5,000 miles. The well-preserved Lamborghini features its original interior and is believed to have had paint repair in some areas, including the nose and trunk. The undercarriage is believed to be completely unrestored. To make this sparingly driven car roadworthy, the consignor retained Dino Motors of San Mateo, California, to sympathetically refresh the brakes, suspension, carburetors, and exhaust system.

Highly sophisticated and currently displaying approximately 5,200 miles, this well-loved Lamborghini is accompanied by a tool kit, jack, owner’s handbook, and roof storage bag. It would complement any collection beautifully and would be an ideal acquisition for any enthusiast of Sant’Agata Bolognese’s seminal grand tourers.
