Illustration for article titled Whats The Most Underrated Sports Car?

Everyone collectively drools for the Datsun 240Z and Mazda Miatas of the world, but there are some sports cars out there that deserve more attention than they get.


A personal favorite of mine i s the Lamborghini Urraco. Most of you remember it as the car that broke down a bunch on that old Top Gear episode. Others of you may think of it as a completely impossible to maintain hunk of Italian nonsense.

I think of it as the car that beat the Porsche 2.7 RS.

Back in 1973, when both cars were new on the market, CAR Magazine comparison tested a Urraco S (with its 2.5 liter, 220 horsepower V8) against the Porsche Carrera 2.7 (mechanically identical to the now-legendary Carrera RS). CAR found that the subtle Lamborghini was the better-handling, better-driving car.

It might not be the easiest car to own, or the most famous, but the Urraco deserves a better reputation than its current forgotten status.
