A great, rare car. Speak to tony Lambo in Naples....he has the niceest example I have ever seen. Parts are a problem. Working on the car is not that hard unless you have to drop the engine for certain repairs. Make sure to get a PPI before finalizing any purchase. Car is in VERY short supply and should only increase in value.

Craig,

They are great cars if in proper running order. I don't know if you'll find one......but if you do make sure you know what your getting. A perfect car will cost $70,000 and up. A car that needs alot of work and paint etc, will cost in the $40,000 range but you will spend another $40K in restoration.
Let me know if you need any more help, as I own a perfect one (that is not for sale) and can tell you what to look out for.

Well, the pieces for a Silouette should have almost the same availability like those of the P300 Urraco.
Remember I have enforced engine mounts, designed for the Jalpa's but they fit the Urraco too.

Craig,

Tony's comments are accurate. If you are fortunate enough to find one the driving experience is very rewarding!
The cars are not at all difficult to work on and you would be surprised how many parts are available for a rare car. Its rarety will ensure that the Silhouette will always be special...but I am biased!

Paul

It was the second production car built. Has 51000km and seems to be very original from the photos.

Haven't taken a look at it yet.

P.S. you have my ideal combination of Lambos - LP400 & Silhouette.
