A fully restored and well documented Lamborghini GT
In 1969, Lamborghini improved their 2+2 with numerous changes including a more powerful 350bhp V12 engine. With many upgrades to the mechanics, aesthetics, and interior, the Islero S was quite an improvement, and was sometimes known as the Islero 400 GTS.
Outwardly, the car received slightly flared wheel arches, an enlarged hood scoop, horizontal side fender vents, 3/4 windows in the doors and two driving lights in the front grill. Inside, the new flat dashboard had a functional glove box and rocker switchgear but was perhaps less interesting than the early model.
Under the skin, a new rear suspension and larger disc brakes were part of the package. The engine sourced parts from the Miura S including its hotter cam and higher compression. This meant 340-350bhp on tap, which was good enough to achieve 0-60 mph in 6.2 seconds.
Like the preceding Islero, the S model used a variation of the 400 GT 2+2 square-tube chassis, with a wider track to accommodate the Campagnolo wheels. The model was outfitted with leather interior, power steering, air conditioning and power windows.
Sold alongside the Miura S, only 100 examples of the Islero S were produced, making the car we are offering today very special indeed.
Fully restored in Italy by ex Lamborghini factory employees this is an exceptional Islero S and certainly worthy on consideration for any Lamborghini collector or perhaps a collector with a family looking to accomadate some little ones in the rear two seats.
