This time I would like to introduce " Lamborghini Jarama 400 GTS (1974) "is.
Seasoning as Gran Turismo
Originally a tractor maker in the 1960s, Lamborghini entered the sports car industry with the desire to make cars more comfortable than Ferrari.
And while super sports cars are so popular that they are divided into Ferrari and Lamborghini, One that can be ridden by a family of four, but is also responsive to the driver As Lamborghini Jarama was announced in 1970.
Therefore, the name comes from the Harama Circuit in the suburbs of Madrid, Spain, but rather than a sports model. A model with a flavor as Gran Turismo is.
One of the gems created by a dream-like collaboration
Initially, I was in charge of development later F Giampaolo Dallara, who created various racing cars including 1. GT As a car, the wheelbase is short and it was designed with an emphasis on exercise performance in advance. Feel the breath of Dallara who created Miura It's a concept.
After that, Paolo Stantourni took over the trace of Dallara and was in charge. Designed by Marcello Gandini of Bertone, who was in charge of Miura and Countach. If you think about it now, it's a gem created by a dreamlike collaboration. 1 It can be called a stand.
I feel Gandini's sense when I make half of the headlights, such as retractable headlights that can no longer be made, visible and hidden without being fully covered.
The rear end of the roof is warped even in the straight line, which is also a unique design and very 40 It's hard to believe that the car was more than a year old.
Chassis performance that competes with Miura
The engine is from the beginning 4L / V Mold 12 cylinder· 350 Equipped with horsepower. In the case of this vehicle later GTS and 365 It has been increased to horsepower. to this Five Maximum speed by combining speed missions 260 It was touted as a kilo. Even if you discount a little 220 220 ~ 230 230 Imagine that it had a performance of about a kilo.
However, the balance of chassis performance is very good, Demonstrate performance that can not be underestimated to compete with Miura even on circuits etc. And surprised the surroundings.
The intrusion of engine noise is also suppressed to a low level, and you can drive comfortably enough. The engine is sticky from the low speed range, and it is extremely easy to ride. General Frucchio is also one of my favorites So, there is an anecdote that he was riding on his feet.
Wide and practical Four Sufficient passenger ride
The interior has been renewed once as it was originally. It looks simpler and more casual than Ferrari, but it can be said that it creates a Lamborghini character.
What surprised me was the space utility. Surprisingly wide and practical, enough for 4 people .. There is plenty of head clearance, and the interior space is as comfortable as if it were the same manufacturer that made Miura and Countach.
subtle 20 Of the several right-hand drive cars built 1 Platform
Initially, it is said that it planned to produce about 1,000 units a year, but in the end it was planned. Only 328 units in 5 years Was only sold.
It's a shame, but Porsche made an ideal Lamborghini that is easy for Frucchio to ride. 911 As with the Sportmatic example, if the user doesn't understand it, it will end up without being able to convey its goodness.
At that time, it seems that only a small number were imported to Japan, but it is highly possible that they are almost non-existent now, so it is unlikely that you will see them first.
This vehicle is a car delivered from a new car to the United Kingdom, and moreover One of only 20 right-hand drive cars built is.
Fully restored, stable start and comfortable high-speed driving
Then, after being owned by several collectors, Have received a full restore , At the moment, it is in a perfect state. Unfortunately, even from a global perspective, unlike cars such as Miura and Countach, there are almost no individuals in Harama's preserved condition.
Imagine that restoring would cost as much as Miura or Countach, or more. Numerous restore documents speak for themselves.
The startability of the engine is also good, and the idling is quiet and stable. If you step on the heavy clutch and start running, it will be surprisingly easy to ride and you will be out of tune. The gear is easy to handle, the lateral stroke is large, and the touch is a nice and easy-to-use category.
As soon as the engine warms up and the accelerator is depressed, the engine sound changes drastically, and it is unique and intense, which is different from Miura, Countach, and Ferrari. 12 It resonates with the cylinder sound and has a feeling of acceleration that makes you feel like you are being kicked from behind. 100 You will reach miles.
In addition, the ride quality at high speeds is flat and comfortable. The straightness is very good, and I think that it has enough ability as a tourer.
In addition, the handling is also equipped with power steering, which is light and easy to control, and it is easy to forget that a heavy engine is on the front because of the ease of turning.
Only the brakes have a weak servo effect and require some pedaling force, but considering that it is a car of this era, I think it is a standard category. It's a very well-balanced car, and what wasn't appreciated at the time was a car that was really missed.
