The Islero was followed up by an equally forgettable model, the Jarama. This car was a bit more successful, with a 328 unit run from 1970 to 1976. The Islero needed to comply with new US safety standards so instead of revising that car, Lamborghini just rolled out a whole new model
. The Jarama was built on a shortened version of the Espada's chassis and was heavier than the car it replaced. Still, it had the same top speed thanks to a more powerful version of the signature V12 which made 365 hp. We prefer the slightly uncovered headlights of the Jarama, which make it slightly more interesting than the Islero.
