    This ad with its optimistic delivery date for the new P250 was published in Car magazine December 1970 shortly after the Turin show where the orange and white pre-production cars were first shown on the Lamborghini and Bertone stands respectively.

    Here is another 1970s period ad for Italian fashion designer Nino Cerruti, staged at Sant Agata.

    Looks like a RHD car too.

    Enjoy!

    After years of searching for a Lamborghini cars, I am now a new owner of a 1975 Urraco. The car is scheduled to be delivered on Friday. Pictures and details will follow. By the way, I am looking to buy a stock wheel and tool kit. If you have them sitting in your garage, please kindly send me a private message. Tom/Colorado

    Yes, it is. I drove it around town yesterday. Engine and gearbox are in good shape. Will take a longer drive to a local cars and coffee this morning. Let's see how it perform. Overall, my evaluation of the car is above average condition.

    My Urraco came with Fulda 205/70/14 tires. Are they one of original brands used by Lamborghini back in 1975 ?

    Anyone have BMW e28 or e34 15X7.5 or 16x7.5 on their Urraco? I am thinking to put the stock 14x7.5 wheels in storage and up the wheel size a bit so I will have more tire options.

    the best tire was/is Michelin XWX 205, I did run the XWX 215 on the rear and had no rubbing issues.

    Valentino suggested that I run 195 in fron and 205 in the rear - I did that for a set. better steering control. I remember that Pirelli offered P5 tires at the time.

    The P300 had 195s in front and 205s at the rear on 14 x 7.5 rims.
    The Silhouette had 195s in front on 15 x 8 rims.
    Last I heard the 14" 195 XWX was no longer being made.
    The Eurospares 15 x 8 replicas would look good on an Urraco and provide a greater selection of tyre options!

    I measured my Urraco wiper arm for bayonet wiper blades fitting and it is 9 mm. I looked around can only find 7 mm bayonet wiper blades. Does anyone know where I can get 9 mm bayonet ones?

    Hi all,

    I'm an experience F-car owner now looking for a P250 or 300 - I guess the 300 is the one to go for. I wondered if any f-chatters in the UK have any leads on Urracos for sale in the UK

    Also does anyone have a scan of the workshop manual for 250 and/or 300 ? I like to read up on the car before getting one.

    thanks

    Lee

    Can you take a photo. I'm running 2 18inch wipers with old hardware, maybe stock.

    Is this the measurement you are talking?

    Lee,

    Visit this website for Urraco workshop manual:
    http://www.inrodaggio.com/html/downloads1.html

    I like P250 engine. It is simpler and heads are smaller so more room for your hands.

    Well, I found a solution for the wiper. Used TRICO 44-190 wiper refill (a pair) and worked. It cost $7.49 at O'Reilly. Keep all other parts original (Arman). Good to go.

    Does anyone has a pic showing where the clear flexible drain hose of the black engine lid on the top of left side supposes to go? I do not see any holes on the fuel filter side or near the gas cap area for the hose to drain the water.
