1974 LAMBORGHINI URRACO P250S
A super cool Urraco presented in the best colour.
History of this car
According to the 14 page PRA report on file, our Urraco, a rare P250S model, was supplied new by Lamborghini to its first owner in Reggio Calabria on 03.01.74 and there it remained until 1979 when sold to a man in Piraino, Messina. In 1980 it was sold to a new owner in Capo D’Orlando, Messina.
In 1983 car left the island to go to new owner in Brescia, Mr Paolo Berardelli. He then registered the car to his company Beta 3 Ltd in 1986 and in 2002 it was sold to a family member in Brescia. This owner kept the car until 2006 when sold to Pietro Berardelli of Cellatica, Brescia (the son of previous owner). In 2013 the Urraco was exported to the UK.
With just one UK owner and a previous family custodian of 30 years, this gorgeous Lambo is a genuine low owner from new vehicle.
Our car is showing a recorded 52000 klm (32k miles) which is probably the genuine mileage from new, judging by the overall integrity of this example. This sensational Gandini penned Urraco, hailing from from the era of peak exotica production at Sant’ Agata, has benefitted from nearly £30,000 of recent upkeep including an engine overhaul.
The desirable age related registration LAM 8M is included in the sale.
This is a dry, super straight car with an excellent, corrosion and accident free body and chassis. It makes for a knock out first impression with a high lustre paint job in Nero. Opening panels shut with a quality thunk and gaps are all correct. Our Urraco has been repainted in the past, but this was clearly a quality repaint with a few minor sinkage and detail flaws consistent with an older painting.
The glass is all excellent, what little bright trim is on it is very good, and the Campagnolo magnesium wheels are unmarked.
Since being in the UK our car has benefitted from fastidious upkeep including an engine out £15,000 receipted overhaul in 2018 (engine received new valves, rings, cam belt etc) with full engine bay detailing.
Other recent works include 4 new Michelin XWX tyres, rebuilt carburettors, electronic ignition, brake and suspension overhaul (adjustable Bilstein shockers fitted), exhaust refurbishment, new clutch and other works, with a further £15,000 of detailed expenditure including the fitment of uprated cooling fans (originals accompany the car).
Unsurprisingly today this example drives just right, and our 100 mile test drive included rush hour town commuting and motorway driving with no faults encountered.
A sensational driver and a credit to the previous owner.
New advisory free MOT issued, expiring April 2020.
Wow is the word. A gorgeous interior in tan leather. Sitting behind that concept car like deep dish steering wheel and wacky dashboard is a great place to travel, with the sonorous motor tucked away behind the glass panel in your rear view mirror, the motor sitting under Miuraesque slats..
The interior is in excellent condition in every way, with functioning air conditioning. A set or over mats are supplied with the car.
Both front and rear boots are excellent, the front containing the spare, the rear carpeted and in unmarked condition.
These are usable exotics, way cooler and nicer to drive than the 308 Ferrari range. This one is in remarkable condition and highly recommended.
