    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

    Thanks

    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.

    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.

    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..."

    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...
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cU37VATS44c

    "...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...
