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.
