about this car

The prototype that revolutionised the supercar world was introduced at the Geneva Auto Show in 1971 and the full name LP500 stood for "Longitudionale Posteriore" referring to the engine position as rear-mounted with a longitudinal configuration and 500 from the engine displacement. The car was designed by Marcello Gandini and was strongly inspired by Alfa-Romeo Carabo concept. This first show car had a digital dashboard, not an analog one as we are used to in the production versions of the car. It also had a computer that monitored important information for a sports car as: tyre pressure, brakes condition, oil pressure, etc.

Two prototypes were built, one yellow and one red with minor differences.

Timeless italian design, the prototype is the cleanest most beautiful of all IMO, with the original LP400 a close second. Don't like the aero adenda of the latest models
