About the Islero

The car Ferruccio Lamborghini imagined when he drove his Ferrari was a more comfortable but still sporty car he could drive around Italy with his loved ones.

It turned out what people wanted from Lamborghini was innovative and beautiful supercars. The mid-engine Lamborghini Miura was the first commercially successful model Lamborghini made. But Lamborghini would continue to try to make front engine, 2+2 GT cars like the Islero for another decade.

The Islero was the successor to the Lamborghini 400GT and debuted alongside the Lamborghini Espada.
