Hardcore Lambo supercar fans would remember that this P250 Lamborghini Urraco model was rolled out between 1970 and 1976 as a 2+2 coupe with a powerful 2.5-litre mid-mounted rear V8 engine.
The “P” in the model name stands for “Posteriore” which means “rear” in Italian language while the “250” was the rated engine capacity. This powerful engine of the Urraco had 4 Weber double-bodied carburettors that help it to produce 220hp at a 7,800rpm rotation speed which gives the supercar a top speed of 152 mph (245 km/h).
Back in the ‘70s, the P250 Lamborghini Urraco supercar was one of the stars of the road
During the Turin Motor Show in 1974, Lamborghini unveiled the incredible P200 Uracco model which targeted the Italian market specifically. This variant came with a 2.0-litre engine that outputs 182hp and was rolled out yearly until 1977. However, in the year 1975, Lamborghini added the P300 variant to the lineup and it was a huge upgrade because of its 3.0-litres higher-capacity engine that pumped out 265hp. Even though Lamborghini only produced 776 units of the P200, P250, and P300 Urraco model; it became a notable inspiration for the automaker’s future 8- and 10-cylinder engines.
