With only 791 ever built, the Lamborghini Urraco is a rare Bertone design in need of a good caretaker. This red example found hers back in 1987.

While Marcello Gandini did a splendid job on the drawing board, Ferruccio Lamborghini was just about getting ready to sell his companywhen the Urraco came out in 1973. Powered by a 2.0 V8 at first to offer people an affordable Lambo just like Ferrari did with the Dino, the displacement went up to 3 liters before the Silhouette and the Jalpa took over the entry-level scene.

Gene Ondrusek found one of the 21 US-spec Uracco P111s in 1987 in the classifieds in Dallas and payed $18.500 the day after for the "40K, good running and driving" Italian. What followed was a massive engine failure and a ground up restoration that will last pretty much forever, just like Gene's love for the car.
