It is arguably Lamborghini’s last stab at a subtler and cosseting front-engined 2+2 before the company’s attention turned to the more extravagant stuff for which they are most famous.
Nevertheless, these long swooping tourers still catch the eye. Gandini, while crafting a more introverted item, still wove in some typically Lamborghini extroversions. Swollen arches, a long vented bonnet and low slung chrome tail pipes mark it out as a Bull. The interior is gorgeously appointed with leather quilting most of the cabin. Sat on the Cartier Style et Luxe lawn on the Thursday morning of FoS, this beautiful example looked fit for a pan-European cruise.
The original car came equipped with the 3.9-litre 350bhp V12, whilst the S model seen here runs the upgraded 365bhp version. With a production run of under 400 cars over its six year life, the Jarama is a rare gem from Lamborghini’s past and one that is always a privilege to see, and what an example to see on the Cartier Style et Luxe Lawn at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
