From 1981 through 1988, Lamborghini built the Lamborghini Jalpa sports vehicle. It was released to replace the Lamborghini Silhouette and was intended to be a more cost-effective and useful model than Lamborghini’s flagship, the Countach.
A 3.5-liter V8 engine gave the Jalpa its roughly 255 horsepower and allowed for a top speed of about 155 miles per hour. It also had rear-wheel drive and a 5-speed manual transmission.

With a wedge-shaped body and angular lines, the Lamborghini Silhouette served as inspiration for the Jalpa’s design. The cockpit had two seats and a tiny amount of baggage room behind the seats. It also had a detachable targa cover.
