Lamborghini Silhouette, the Shortlived Uracco Redesign
Known as the Silhouette P300, the mid-engined Silhouette was the based on the Lamborghini Urraco. Only 53 units were built. It came at a time of desperation for the company who was struggling to survive. Ferruccio asked Bertone to redesign the Urraco P300 into a different looking car that would boost sales. It was comfortable and got several upgrades.
Released at the 1976 Geneva Motor Show, the Silhouette was a targa-style version of the Urraco P300. It was Lamborghini’s first open model which used a removable roof that could be stored behind the rear seats.
