To date lamborghini produced only very expensive sports car with V12 engines. That the company makes very dependent on the whims of the market. It's not the first time it comes on the brink. Therefore is created under the new technical director Paolo Stanzini an additional V8, which is strongly oriented to the currently existing Miura, not without finding space for two extra auxiliary seats.
It shall first be developed a V8 with 2.5 liters and a the Miura-like capacity performance. One could almost assume that the engine is oriented similar to the rear axle, as today's transverse engines to their front axles. But with the engine assembly left in drive direction an additional deflection has to be present. Or the engine turns counterclockwise. The wheel suspension rear (and of course front, too) is a very simple construction. Only the sound and thermal insulation requires a sophisticated isolation with a separating double glass pane.
The P 250 is not really ready for production at its presentation in 1970. There are very many pre-orders. And yet the company takes its time for more than 2 years with the production. So you scare away the customers. Look at the dashboard of the Urraco, then you find another minus point. Interesting that it should have been only five prototypes. Two just because of the design. Of the remainder, only one is destroyed in a crash test. Those were the days.
A pity, because the car radiates a lot more charm of the 70s as a 911 . It is very close the Ferrari 308 GT 4 and as P 300 after revision even superior according to the values. But since it is already too late. In addition the oil price crisis catches up with the super cars. Porsche brings Carrera. What was once planned as a rescue, the company falls more deeply into the red.
