Lamborghini Silhouette

The Lamborghini Silhouette was a mid-engine rear drive sports car made in small numbers by Lamborghini between 1976 and 1979. The Silhouette began as a styling exercise by noted Italian carrozzeria Bertone. It was based on the earlier Lamborghini Urraco but was distinguished from the Uracco by more angular styling. The Silhouette was the first Lamborghini to employ a targa top roof. The Silhouette later evolved into the similar looking but more successful Lamborghini Jalpa. The car had a 3 litre V8 engine mounted transversely behind the driver. Of the 55 of these cars built, 31 are currently known to exist.

Afterwards once the car stopped production it was named and was the only Lamborghini to be named after the project stopped it is also known to be the car which inspired the very popular car of today such as LP640, Murcialago, Gallardo and the upcoming Lamborghini SS 2500.
