The Lamborghini Jarama
The perfect compromise between the Miura and the Espada
A few weeks ago I was surprised by an orange 1975 Lamborghini Jarama S showing up in my feed. I thought I’d seen every classic Lamborghini ever made. I’m not sure how I’d never seen a Jarama before. But I love it.
The Lamborghini Jarama, a 2+2 V12 Grand Tourer styled by Marcello Gandini, debuted at the 1970 Geneva Motor Show. A total of 328 Jaramas were built between 1970 and 1976.
The Jarama was built to US standards by using a narrowed version of the Espada chassis, with the wheelbase shortened a little over 10 inches. A Jarama S was introduced in 1972. Lamborghini produced 150 examples. The Jarama was Ferruccio Lamborghini’s favorite model. He was quoted as saying “I preferred the Jarama to all the others, because it is the perfect compromise between the Miura and the Espada." in a 1991 interview.
