Last month, Lamborghini celebrated a new milestone after the 10,000th Aventador rolled off the production line. This isn’t only milestone Lamborghini is celebrating, however, because one of the company’s most under-appreciated sports cars has just turned 50. We’re talking about the long-forgotten Lamborghini Urraco, a sports car you’ve probably never heard of.
Unveiled at the Turin Motor Show in 1970, the Urraco’s design was innovative for its time. Taking the form of a 2+2 coupe, the Urraco featured a mid-mounted V8 rear engine and independent suspension, while the chassis was fitted with a MacPherson strut system on both front and rear axles for the first time in a production car.
