Learn More About This Crazy One-Off Classic


Essentially a Lamborghini made out of a Jaguar.

This one seemed a bit less strange at the time it was built, but it was still quite eye-catching. The car was built in 1967 by the UK newspaper The Daily Telegraph basically as a publicity stunt. It was made out of a Jaguar XKE 2+2, but the body bears a very clear resemblance to the Lamborghini Espada. And there is a good reason for this, it was designed by Marcello Gandini, the same man who designed the Espada. But this car, the Pirana, came first, and the one-off clearly served as his inspiration.

Here you'll see Jay Leno drive it and give a much more in-depth look into its history and what makes it so special.
