Lamborghini Jalpa review! The Lamborghini Jalpa is the baby Lamborghini that most people don’t know about. Today I’m reviewing a rare Lamborghini Jalpa, and I’ll show you all the quirks and features of this unusual Lamborghini. I’m also going to drive the Jalpa and show you what this special Lamborghini is like on the road.
The Jalpa was a development of the earlier Silhouette intended to fill a role as a more “affordable” Lamborghini, being much less expensive than the flagship Countach and being also designed by Bertone. Watch the video from Doug DeMuro for more info:
The Jalpa was fitted with a 3.5 L double overhead camshaft version of the V8 engine used in the Silhouette on which it was based. The version used in the Jalpa had a power output of 255 hp at 7,000 rpm and 225 lb⋅ft of torque at 4,000 rpm in European specification.
The engine in the US models had a power output of 250 hp.Fuel flow was managed by four twin-barrel down-draught Weber 42 DCNF carburetors.amborghini claimed the Jalpa could accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.0 seconds, the top speed was 249 km/h.
