It is probably quite some time since you set eyes on a Islero unless you happen to be one of the 125 lucky owners that is. Lamborghini only built 125 of these vehicles in all. The bodywork came to us courtesy of Carrozzeria Marazzi. They used the excellent Lamborghini 400GT platform. Carrozzeria Touring was responsible for the 400GT design but had gone bankrupt in the meantime with many of its former designers finding a new home at the recently established Carrozzeria Marazzi. Mario Marazzi had also been part of the Touring stable. Our car was supplied from new on the 8th February 1969 by the Foïtek Lamborghini dealership based in Zurich, Switzerland.

The Islero bodywork has powerfully sculpted lines. Even stationary the car looks seriously fast, Our car has been very well looked after. The paintwork has been resprayed and together with the brightwork and hubcaps look in great condition. The neat panelwork is properly aligned.

Inside we find refurbished black leather and black carpets. The neat carpets have been fitted correctly. The well-maintained leather is delightfully supple. The wooden gear knob and steering wheel are similarly in great shape. The roof lining is in good condition. All gauges and controls work properly as expected.

Mechanically this car has been extremely well maintained. The 4.0-litre V12 engine, therefore, runs perfectly. The engine develops 330 Ps and draws breath through six twin Weber carburettors. The 5-speed transmission was an in-house Lamborghini design that was quite advanced for its day, the gearbox having Synchromesh rings on each of the gears. The car’s suspension is also a piece of art, having fully independent double-wishbone suspension with good quality shocks, giving the car fabulous road-holding. The Islero is a sporty Grand Tourer making no distinction between tackling your favourite mountain road or transversing European highways at speed.

This is a very fine, exceedingly rare and great looking Lamborghini Islero!
