    It's not a kit car.

    I can tell by the sunroof it's the real thing!

    You are right: it is the SWB "Senza Sei" edition: V6 from Pontiac instead of the more traditional V12

    Absolutely, and it's the most economical Countach.

    Very few people are aware of this. ;)

    Without pixs this post is useless!

    And please, don't include the Panamera in 'sighted' threads. It's not exotic and it ain't pretty! :):):)

    A black Lamborghini Jalpa spotted at the Lamborghini dealer off of Ogden Ave. this past weekend.( can't be too many of those cars around I would think-it had IL. plates on it)

    Awesome spotting. I love Jalpas. Did it have a big wing?

    OK OK, I am deeply sorry to all, i will never again post sightings of Bentley's, Panameras, or M6's. Sorry.

    But, I will have to disagree, for I think Panamera's are pretty and interesting cars.

    Blaah, the pics are bad, so I'll upload some from previous sightings:

    These pics are from summer, except the Cali, is from spring I think.

    Use these pics as you will.

    Wow, my phone pics turn out well!
    These were taken by my phone.

    Nice pics.

    Panameras share the same timeless lines as a beached whale

    There was no rear wing on the black Jalpa at the Ogden Ave. Lamborghini dealer. I do remember several years ago a red Jalpa with a color matched rear wing for sale at the Ferrari dealer in Hinsdale.( It looked like an OEM Countach wing or a possible Pantera wing, but that was @11+ years ago-I always wondered what happened to that car???) The black Jalpa said: 3.5 on the back of the car by the brakelights-the car made me think about the movie Rocky IV

    I think that Jalpa is semi abandoned at FVMC.
