Well done Richard, 40052 strikes again!
40084 on display at the Gosford Classic Car Museum in Australia. The cars consigned to Australia had a clear windscreen, necessitating the aerial on the rear quarter panel...

would like to keep you informed about my restauration. I have lot of fun with the painter
I start once again ;-)
As Percy our dog will attest, persistence pays...
I also work on my top to bring it back in it's original shape. I would need some details of the headlining, sealing and trim.
Could anyone assist me with some details or pictures!?
Thanks in advance
The headlining material is the same as the fabric seat material, a =||= weave, in grey for Nero interior and beige for Naturale interior. As far as I know it is no longer available although Bruno Paratelli had this remnant several years ago...
I would provide you with more pics but my car is in hibernation until April...
yes i remember, its the same like on the urraco seats. I found a nearly similar Material, sadly in grey not beige ;-(
I look forward to get some pics, it would help me a lot to reconstruct
Who was looking for this stereo? On eBay now. Original fit to silhouettes and 70s countach...

Good luck! Just curious, what is the VIN of your car?
Seek and ye shall find...
Rarely seen, this the alloy spacer that sits above a Silhouette front top mount. There is a spacer at the rear as well...
Classic Cars magazine with feature on YEL 379S dropped through the door this morning, great piece on a stunning car!
Here is the feature in the April 2017 edition of Classic Cars magazine.... I think they liked it! As always with these things, there were lots of great photos not used so I'll post some of those.
Looks stunning, congrats on the article.
was this Agip lubrificanti decal used on Silhouette ?
That was me.. bit pricey, but at least I know what to go for now.
BTW, it was me who bought your E9 CSL...!
Hi Doug, i'll send you a PM.
Just picked up my issue! It takes quite some time to arrive to Switzerland. However, it was worth the wait! Fantastic article, Richard you must be very proud.
Thanks. It is great seeing the car in a magazine, especially as it was shot on a sunny day last August...
If you missed Car Magazine, the Convoy 2 article is reprinted (shorter version) in the current edition of Autombile magazine. Available in the US...

1979 Lamborghini Silhouette -
Maybe not the nicest one in existence, but when will you next see another one for sale?
A very late one, must be #40104.
are you sure, #40.104 had white wheels, not like this one for sale which has gold ones
This is without doubt 40104, easily recognised due to the non standard seats. The originals were sold on eBay in 2007...
Sticker one the windscreen, US-blinkers, bend in the gear stick, non-standard seats and odometer reading convinced me that this is #40104.
Not only that Kevin....It has 40104 on the strut tower!!
You have more pics than I do about it, so yes !
Tried to buy it, but too late (like probably tens of other guys)!!!
I received their newsletter/E-mail at 00:23 CET
Woke up late at 08:30
Sent an email to Peter at 08:32 saying i wanted it
Answer back at 14:42 from Anthony Stella saying deposit taken
Next time i'll just send money directly without asking...GIVE ME THOSE WIRING DETAILS !!!!
These guys have crazy prices for average cars, but still low prices, like Beverly Hills Car Club...
old school/no nonsense guys.. I must admit i like that.
you just don't find these sort of dealers anymore in Europe.
My god i liked this Silhouette, probably the last one built and good value for money.
was it typical for the silhouette to say uracco on the gear shift? id imagine so but seems odd to me.
Yes this is correct, same as P300.
According to my notes 40104 was the 31st production car consigned.
seems like they just posted #104 on ebay for ~80k
1979 Lamborghini Countach | eBay
1976 with gold wheels
Sold this morning
Wont help much, but found the old 2007 ad:
Reina International Auto:: 1979 Lamborghini Urraco 3000 Silhouette P300 -
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!
Great to see Ivor !

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..."
an ancient tire or are they remaking them?
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...
of course you know i agree with bicocchi statement...
