Technical Specifications

Lamborghini LP240 Urraco engine and subframe unit

The engine was an all new compact V8 with single over head cams driven by a single timing belt and fed by 4 x WEBER IDF carburettors. The design evolved over time by increasing the capacity and modifying the cylinder heads for double over head cams drive by more reliable chains.

Lamborghini LP240 Urraco engine and subframe unit

The engine and subframe unit is neat and compact and easy to work on with all anciliaries such as carburettors, generator, water pump, starter motor accessible. The engine and subframe unit has to be removed to service the timing belt area because you cannot remove the belt covers with the engine in place. This means a major service can cost £1500 (mostly labour). Some owners modify the covers so they can be removed with the engine in place as there is reasonable access to the crank pulley and tensioners with the wheel of the car removed.
