Chrysler Lamborghini Portofino (1987)
In 1987, the prestigious Lamborghini brand was taken over by Chrysler, which celebrated the anniversary of this acquisition with the magnificent Portofino concept car. Named after a resort on the Italian Riviera, the car was made on a 23-inch stretched Jalpa platform and was equipped with a V-shaped “eight” located in the base, derated to 225 hp. The body design with four guillotine-type doors, two trunks and excellent aerodynamics (Cx = 0.25), as well as the interior of the four-seater saloon, was developed in the USA, and the Turin atelier Coggiola built the car. Portofino was not intended for mass production, however, Chrysler Corp. mass full-size sedans received a similar silhouette and design of the front end.
