The 'Baby' Lamborghinis
\\ Lamborghini WEB \ Specifications \ Baby

The following pages describe Lamborghini's 'baby' cars - the entry-level exotics produced by the marque with 'only' a V-8 engine. Despite the success of such cars as the 350GT and the Miura, in the early 1970's Lamborghini was very much a low-volume producer of cars. The immaculate V-12 cars it was producing lay outside the financial capabilities of all but the richest of people, and these were relatively few, and the competition although small in number was stiff, with obvious examples being Ferrari and Aston Martin.

Lamborghini was trying to put a car bearing their insignia in every niche of the performance car market, and one that they had not entered in 1970 was that of an affordable entry-level exotic. Such a car could be produced at relatively high volumes, thus fulfilling the need that had arisen for Lamborghini in the worsening global economy of the time. As with any of the other cars it produced, Lamborghini had to make a car that performed better than the competition, whilst being slightly less expensive. The initial result was the mid-engine V-8 Urraco, as you will see when you read onů..
