Killer Bull - Lamborghini Islero

The Lamborghini Islero was a 2 + 2 built from 1968 to 1969, with just 225 examples built.

Powered by a 325 hp 3929 cc / 239.7 CUI 60 degree V12 capable of taking the Islero from 0-60mph in 6.4 seconds and on to a top speed of 154 mph.

Named after a Muira Bull that killed Manuel Rodriguez 'Manilete' on August 28, 1947. The design was by Carrozzeria Marazzi.

Ferruccio & Edmondo Lamborghini used such vehicles as there 'daily drivers'. Any one who has seen 'The Man Who Haunted Himself' may have noticed Roger Moore driving one.

Hope you enjoyed today's post and will join me again tomorrow, don't forget to come back now !
