This Guy Won't Wear Shoes in His 1975 Lamborghini Urraco

Carpet is expensive after all.

It was originally intended to be the entry-level Lamborghini model, sort of a competitor to the Porsche 911 and Ferrari Dino. Instead the Lamborghini Urraco nearly destroyed the Italian automaker. It drank a lot of fuel (try 13 mpg) and its build quality wasn’t the best. In other words, it was expensive to maintain. Still, the Urraco came powered by a Lamborghini-built V8 and is a thrill to drive on the open road. Around town, however, is a different story. The Urraco requires a lot of effort to control.

Although its current owner purchased it back it in 1987 with just 40,000 miles on the clock and in supposedly decent condition, the Urraco had a dark secret: an earlier engine rebuild failed to have the tension belt timed correctly. That led to a ground-up restoration. But the end result was well worth the effort and cost.
