foto of the day. Islero.

I’ve always loved the Miura  and the Espada, but the 3rd classic Lamborghini which i’ve always loved is the Islero.  Arguably rarer than the other 2 (only 225 Isleros were made), completely underappreciated, and in my opinion easily one of the coolest cars made in the 60s.  why?  because it may be the most understated Lamborghini ever made—-with classic coupe lines designed by (unknown at the time) Mario Marazzi, handsome & unique profile, one-of-a-kind taillights, and much improved driving dynamics to 350 and 400gt.   The Islero never really caught on as it was overshadowed by the Espada at the time, however I think it’s a damn shame—-as this is truly the gentleman’s Lamborghini.   Supposedly Ferrucio was more involved with this car’s development than any other Lamborghini which came out under his name…
