Well this is a depressing photo in many ways; one of my ultimate dream cars— the Lancia Fulvia left for dead…..

This was due to be the replacement for the Lamborghini Urraco, however it was launched to the world as a concept in 1974 by Bertone, however the global economy was slumping, fuel costs were rising, and Ferrucio Lamborghini was retiring. From what i’ve read, there is widespread reporting that this Bravo was tested heavily prior to its introduction (40,000+ miles), but unfortunately it never made it to production. 3.0L engine pumping 300hp through a small, relatively light body and short wheelbase. Smaller, lower, and shorter than the Countach, it definitely ‘borrowed’ some ideas from the Countach.
It looks like Lamborghini would have definitely had an amazing rival to the Ferrari Dino, had they have made this…..
Word is, you can still see the car at the Bertone Museum in Turin, Italy.
