Small displacement: 1976 Lamborghini Urraco P200

It is rare to find one of these Urraco P200 for sale and not only because it is a Lamborghini: only 66 were built.

The reasons for these small numbers are essentially two: on the one hand, the fact that we are talking about an expensive sports car created just three years after the biggest oil crisis the world has ever known, a crisis that has claimed many victims above all among the manufacturers of luxury and sports cars.

On the other hand, the Italian taxes of the time which greatly penalized cars above 2000 c.c. displacement: the P200 was in fact built specifically for the Italian market. this rare white specimen still has its original black plate, but needs a lot of care: the engine and gearbox are dismantled as they have to be rebuilt, the interiors would also need to be refreshed, as well as the bodywork. However, if you want to repair it little by little in order not to ruin you financially, this is an option that has to be considered seriously. Find it for sale at €45,000 (today $50,000) here in Magenta, Italy.
