1975 Lamborghini Urraco P250 PrivateCars - Oklahoma City - 6 views
This 1975 Lamborghini Urraco is one of 21 Tipo 111 P250 cars built for the US market and is powered by a mid-mounted 2.5-liter V8 mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. Built on April 7, 1975, this Lamborghini is finished in black over a tan leather interior. The car resided in Pelham, New York for 27 years, the last 10 of which were spent in storage, before it was sold to the previous owner in 2015. This Urraco was then brought to Texas where it received a top-end engine rebuild by Norwood Auto Italia in Carrollton at a cost of nearly $15k. The five factory Campagnolo alloy wheels were restored and fitted with new Michelin tires in 2017. The seller then acquired the car on BaT in June 2018. The car previously won the 2017 Chairman’s Choice Award at Keels & Wheels Concours d’Elegance in Seabrook, Texas, and this Urraco P250 is now being offered with a service history binder, the original owner’s manual, and a clean Oklahoma title.
The body was refinished in factory-correct black several years ago and the previous owner commissioned a paint correction in August 2017. Bertone body number 580 is stamped on the front and rear lids. Cosmetic blemishes can be seen in the gallery below.
The brake lines were replaced and motors for the pop-up headlights were installed in October 2016. All five Campagnolo 14×7.5” wheels were restored by Westside in Houston, Texas and fitted with Michelin XWX tires in August 2017.
The cabin reportedly retains its original tan leather upholstery and is fitted with factory air conditioning. A Panasonic CD headunit is installed and a period Blaupunkt radio is also included in the sale.
This Urraco features a 4-spoke steering wheel, top-hinged pedals, and a dogleg pattern for the gated 5-speed gearbox. Jaeger instrumentation includes a 9k-rpm tachometer and a 180-mph speedometer. The 5-digit mechanical odometer shows just over 37k miles.
The mid-mounted 2.5-liter V8 produced 217 horsepower at 7,500 rpm when new. Lamborghini published a 0 to 62-mph time of 6.9 seconds and a top speed of 149 mph. A top-end rebuilt was completed by Norwood Auto Italia in Carrollton, Texas in October 2016. Service included repairing the cylinder head, some new valves, a timing belt and tensioner bearing, a head gasket, carburetor gaskets, and exhaust gaskets. Since August 2018, the seller replaced the timing belt and completed a cold compression test, yielding results of 150-190 psi across all cylinders.
A rebuilt clutch master and a slave cylinder were installed July 2017 by Karp’s Power Brake of Upland, California. Additional photos of the underside can be seen in the gallery below.
