World Best Lamborghini Jalpa

The Lamborghini Jalpa, pronounced in Spanish "HAL-pah", was a car produced by Italian automaker Lamborghini from 1981 to 1988. The Jalpa was a development from the previous figure, but was more successful, a total of 419 examples were sold. The Jalpa was intended to fill a more "affordable" Lamborghini, being much cheaper than the Countach. V12 instead of the big car, the Jalpa was fitted with a transversely mounted 3.5-liter V8 that developed 255 hp (190 kW). The body was designed and built by Bertone. Jalpa Named after a famous breed of fighting bulls, Ferruccio Lamborghini having a liking for bulls and being a Taurus he gave most Lamborghini cars bullfighting related names. Compared to the Countach, the Jalpa was much easier to drive, have a better visibility and easier to handle in heavy traffic and low speed. At night, however, there were many annoying internal reflections (a common curse of the Italian low-volume vehicles).
The original plastic components (bumpers, air intakes and engine cover) were black, and the car was rear-rectangular form. In 1984, however, the plastic became body-colored and round taillights were installed. In 1988, after falling sales, the new owners of Chrysler, has decided to stop production Jalpa. Member of the speed rating of the Jalpa was 146 mph (234 kmh), but higher speed have claimed. The weight of all liquids is 3322 pounds (1,507 kg). The Jalpa is 43.9 inches (112 cm).
