The Lamborghini Jarama is a quirky Grand Touring (GT) car built when the company was moving away from GTs and toward supercars.

About the Jarama

The Lamborghini Jarama (pronounced ha-ra-ma) was one of the 2+2 Grand Touring cars when Lamborghini was transitioning from focusing on sporty cruisers to supercars.

The Jarama was the successor to the Islero for the US market. The Jarama was sold alongside the Espada even though they shared chassis architecture and served essentially the same purpose and market.

The Jarama is generally considered the ugliest Lamborghini ever despite it being designed by Marcello Gandini while at Bertone. Gandini also designed the beautiful Miura and the innovative Countach. I guess you can’t win them all!
