1969 Lamborghini Islero

Gallery Aaldering

Gallery Aaldering is offering this amazing Lamborghini Islero for sale. This is a very fine, exceedingly rare and great looking car.


It is probably quite some time since you set eyes on a Lamborghini Islero unless you happen to be one of the 125 lucky owners that is. Lamborghini only built 125 of these vehicles in all. The bodywork came to us courtesy of Carrozzeria Marazzi. They used the excellent Lamborghini 400GT platform. Carrozzeria Touring was responsible for the 400GT design but had gone bankrupt in the meantime with many of its former designers finding a new home at the recently established Carrozzeria Marazzi. Mario Marazzi had also been part of the Touring stable. Our car was supplied from new on the 8th February 1968 by the Foïtek Lamborghini dealership based in Zurich, Switzerland.

Inside we find refurbished black leather and black carpets. The neat carpets have been fitted correctly. The well-maintained leather is delightfully supple. The wooden gear knob and steering wheel are similarly in great shape. The roof lining is in good condition. All gauges and controls work properly as expected.

The Islero bodywork has powerfully sculpted lines. Even stationary the car looks seriously fast, this car has been very well looked after. The paintwork has been resprayed and together with the brightwork and hubcaps look in great condition. The neat panelwork is properly aligned.

Mechanically this car has been extremely well maintained. The 4.0-litre V12 engine, therefore, runs perfectly. The engine develops 330 Ps and draws breath through six twin Weber carburettors. The 5-speed transmission was an in-house Lamborghini design that was quite advanced for its day, the gearbox having Synchromesh rings on each of the gears. The car’s suspension is also a piece of art, having fully independent double-wishbone suspension with good quality shocks, giving the car fabulous road-holding. The Islero is a sporty Grand Tourer making no distinction between tackling your favourite mountain road or transversing European highways at speed.

Gallery Aaldering is a family owned business since 1975. Founder Nico Aaldering and his son Nick are responsible for operational and executive management. The company has been in Brummen since 1987 and started on the location where they currently have their second workshop and detailing shop. Nico started very small, with only three employees. People who still work for the company today. The company grew rapidly and established a name for itself based on quality. In the nineties it was time for expansions after many years of selling Alfa Romeo, then Italian cars later on followed by British cars as well. At the end of 2000 Gallery Aaldering moved to the current premises at the Arnhemsestraat in Brummen. This showroom was build according to Nico's idea and sketches and has a Neoclassical style to match the classic cars inside. During this time Nick entered the company after finishing his studies and working for different automotive companies. Gallery Aaldering expanded and gained momentum with the decades of experience offered by Nico and the bright new ideas and progressive vision offered by Nick. The collection became more diverse with an important move upwards to higher segments. Gallery Aaldering has grown to become one of the largest classic car dealers in Europe. There are about 350 classic cars on display on four floors with a Grand Café and special rooms for business meetings. As a family owned business Gallery Aaldering is proud of its history and traditions, but the future is just as important. At the heart of this all is the passion for classic automobiles. For that reason they participate in the most impressive classic car rally in the world, the Mille Miglia. A deeply rooted love for cars. You will find this in both their genes and the identity of this family owned business.
