1988 Lamborghini Jalpa
Any car-crazy kid who grew up in the Eighties recalls the Lamborghini Countach. 12 cylinders, and nearly as many wings and spoilers. It was the car made for bedroom posters.
The Jalpa never got the praise. With a smaller 8-cylinder engine, it’s not as bonkers..but from what we can tell, it’s a marvelous car. This one was once owned by astronaut Douglas Wheelock – according to the seller, it was sold by his wife while he was in outer space. That has to be some interesting story – the COTD crew can certainly relate to the spouse upset by the new vehicular purchase…
Anyhow, this is a flawless Lambo that can be had for under six figures – while the Countach is nowhere near this inexpensive. We love it.
It’s on eBay in Minneapolis for $88k or offer.
