‘This may well become the nicest to drive and the most consistent in behaviour of all Lambos.’ – Car magazine on the Islero.

Launched at the Geneva Salon in 1968, the Islero was a development of the 400GT 2+2, which was itself derived from Ferruccio Lamborghini’s first production car, the Touring-styled 350GT of 1964. Launched at the 1964 Geneva Motor Show, the 350GT was the work of two of Italy’s most illustrious automobile designers, featuring a glorious 3.5-litre, four-cam V12 designed by Giotto Bizzarrini, which was housed in a tubular chassis penned by Gianpaolo Dallara. The 350GT’s four camshafts and all-independent suspension meant that it up-staged the best that Ferrari offered at the time. After a slow start production soon picked up, 131 350GTs being completed before the arrival of the 400GT and 247 of the latter before it was superseded by the Islero.

The Islero’s square-tube chassis was based on that of its predecessors, though with wider track to accommodate fatter rubber, while its elegantly understated coachwork was styled by ex-Touring personnel led by Mario Marazzi. The model was named after the legendary bull that killed Spain’s best matador, ‘Manolete’. Housed beneath an impressively low-slung bonnet, Lamborghini’s 4.0-litre V12 engine was carried over from the 400GT and produced 320bhp initially, 350bhp in later Islero S form. The latter appeared in 1969 and could be distinguished by its flared wheelarches, vented front wings and a revised interior with more supportive seats and improved instruments and switch gear. Improvements were also made to the suspension and brakes.

Car magazine’s test Islero achieved a true 157mph back in 1969, proving to be as quiet and stable at its maximum as at 130. It was also startlingly quick off the mark, hitting 60mph in 5.9 seconds and hurtling to 100mph in 13.7, outstanding figures even today. Around the Neapolitan back-roads the Islero demonstrated an agility and sureness of foot which belied its role as Grande Routière. Despite an impeccable pedigree, the Islero, 225 of which were manufactured between 1968 and 1969, is today the most overlooked of Lamborghini’s early front-engined cars.

This concerns one of the 100 more powerful Islero S models built, whereby the engine to 350hp was tuned. Externally, the S could be recognized by the increased power bulge on the hood, and fenders modified round side-marker lights (instead of the drop-shaped). In addition, the S had larger brake discs and improved rear suspension.

The car was originally built as left-hand drive with chassis number ‘6634’ in 1969, the build details showing that it was finished in the color Bianco with a Senape leather interior.

The Lamborghini was first owned by Garage Foitek AG Zurich, hereafter this car had 2 owners in Switzerland and then 2 owners in Belgium. In 2014, the last Belgium owner decided to have his car refinished in the colour scheme of Metal Grey with a new brown / beige leather trim. The engine was also overhauled, an invoice and photos are present.
