    Rarely seen Lamborghini, latest news and modern and classic custom coachbuilt marvels

    Dear Ultimatecarpage.com visitor,

    Earlier this year Lamborghini was one of the featured marques during the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. An impressive collection of 'Bulls' graced the Pacific Ocean shoreline. Easily the least known was the P140 Concept. Built in the late 1980s as a possible replacement for the Jalpa, the striking Marcello Gandini styled coupe was never shown in public. So with a sense of occasion and a bit of humor, the Lamborghini executives were on hand to remove the tarp for the P140's world debut. Some years after the original P140 was constructed the same chassis and running gear was used for the fantastic Cala. The Jalpa, however, was not replaced until the Gallardo was introduced in 2003.
    In our SEMA Show feature we missed two very interesting cars. The first is the Dodge Challenger Targa, which features a 540 bhp HEMI crate engine and completed the Targa Tasmania road rally earlier this year. The other is the Volkswagen Super CC. Using the Passat CC as a base, the Volkswagen Design Center in California created a very fast and sleek four-door coupe. Further tuning news includes this 660 bhp Techart GTstreet R.
    Custom coach building used to be the ultimate expression of automotive luxury. A great, classic example of the long lost art is this Hispano Suiza K6 Brandone Cabriolet. It was a concours winner when it was new and again in August when it picked up a best in class at Pebble. Californian company Anteros Coachwork now looks set to revive great coach building tradition. Their XTM Roadster has already been making the rounds at all the major shows and it will be joined next week in LA by this XTR Hardtop.
