Beauty and the Beast

The owners of this Miura SV and Silhouette ventured out together yesterday, first in one car then the other, to experience two completely different solutions to motoring at its best. The pub lunch was good too!

There is a great video here by Davide Chironi featuring Pierluigi Mori who amongst other things road tested production cars including the Silhouette. This is what he has to say about the Urraco and Silhouette...

"I had the pleasure to drive all three versions, 2.4 the first produced, the 2.0 which was produced in only a few specimens...then the 3.0 a great car, eight cylinder engine, double overhead cam, a linear and high performance engine. These mechanics were later used in the Silhouette, a 2 seater convertible, very nice and pleasant to drive, because it drove like a go-cart, it was fun to drive it, setting the curves you felt calm and safe..."

The owner wasn't around - almost certainly and old set though...

video by Davide Chironi featuring Bicocchi "for me the urraco was the most beautiful supercar in the world"

great to hear accounts of these test drivers with such humble beginnings to end up where they did through sheer passion.

Well worth watching and what a career - Lamborghini, Bugatti, Pagani, Konigsegg...

"...the Urraco was for me the most beautiful super car in the world. It was the smallest of the Lamborghini family, but it was the best at that time"...

I see he was trained by Sterzel who joined Lamborghini at the end of 1975...

Here is how our Convoy 2 trip back from Italy last October appeared in Wheels magazine in Australia (March edition I think). With 10 pages, more photos, maps and box outs I think it's the best presentation of them all...
