Our sales manager, Bill Orth sold this car to the owner more than 20 years ago. It's been stored for quite a while and was in the shop to get up and running again. We gave it a full mechanical rundown to get it roadworthy first. Then, we addressed other issues to make it a great specimen.
The Jalpa was a mid-80s reaction to the Ferrari 308/328 series. They continued to make the iconic Countach at the same time. With its transversely-mounted V8, it was a slightly more approachable Lamborghini for the masses.
