1976 Lamborghini Urraco P200 PrivateCars - Athens - 16 views
This 1976 Lamborghini Urraco P200 features its original 2.0 liter V8 engine with quad Weber carbs and is one of just 66 produced for the Italian market. This 37k kilometer (~23k mile) example was imported from Holland a few years ago by its previous owner, and recently received a thorough mechanical refresh in Greece by BaT regular Alex V. The engine was removed and overhauled, Webers were rebuilt, and the cooling system was renewed. The orange exterior is an older repaint that still looks glossy, and the original black interior is well-preserved. Described as well sorted and ready to drive immediately with strong engine compression, the car has FIVA A3 certification and comes with full photo documentation of the mechanical restoration.
The car was repainted on the exterior only, and all inside surfaces are original according to the seller. Paint is showing some signs of age, the most notable blemishes bring a series of small chips on the front edge of the driver’s door and a scratch on the driver’s black Vitaloni side mirror. Detailed images of these areas can be seen in the photo gallery below.
Early ownership history is unknown, but the seller notes a sticker on the driver’s door that shows Mohammed Khaled as an owner in 1978. It is unclear if he was the original owner, though he is a known Lamborghini collector from that period. The body is in good shape with a few small dents from normal use reported by the seller.
The black louvers covering windows and intake vents are in good condition and contrast nicely with the orange exterior. The Gandini-designed shape features angular body panels reminiscent of the Countach, but was a more affordable option than its V12 sibling. The Urraco competed for sales with other entry-level exotics, and just under 800 were produced over 6 years of production.
In addition to the engine work, the entire Girling braking system was serviced with new ventilated discs, and brake lines installed all around. The original 14″ magnesium Campagnolo wheels have been refurbished and wear Pirelli P7F tires.
Exterior rubber, black trim, badging, and lights are in good condition. The original glass is clear and crack free. Larger federally mandated bumpers fit surprisingly well with the shape of the car, and twin stainless dual-exhaust tips protrude from under the bumper.
The black 2+2 interior contains tiny rear seats and is believed entirely original apart from a period Pioneer cassette deck. The cabin looks sharp and is only missing the sun visors. Vinyl surfaces and interior plastics appear well-cared for with a smooth dashtop and no apparent UV damage.
A white dash panel around the Jaeger gauge cluster highlights the instruments and warning lights, all of which are said to function with the exception of the clock radio. Both power windows work, though the passenger side window only goes half way down as something is believed to be blocking the mechanism inside the door panel.
Leather and cloth upholstery on the seats and doors is in good condition and shows light wear for the its age. Original black carpeting looks clean and taut.
The mid-mounted aluminum V8 engine was overhauled less than 600 miles ago. This reduced-bore 1995cc version was based on the 2.5 liter V8 and made 182 horsepower when new. It was built exclusively for the Italian market and was designed to avoid taxes on cars with engines displacing more than 2.0 liters.
The engine-out job included the replacing of the timing belts, head gaskets, and gearbox syncros. The heads were cleaned and checked, and all four of the dual-throat Weber carbs were fully rebuilt. Several shots of the engine overhaul can be found in the gallery below.
The cooling system was refurbished with the addition of modern high performance cooling fans, a new radiator, and a dual circuit for the fans. The car was serviced in preparation for the sale with all new fluids and plugs, rebuild of the distributor, and a new battery. Compression is 150 psi on all 8 cylinders, which is said to be close to upper limit for this low compression (8.7:1) engine.
The underside looks clean, and is said to be all original with no cuts or welds. Full photographic records of the recent mechanical restoration have been provided by the seller.
