Lamborghini powered AWD Daytona

Just playing around on Wikipedia and found this:

"The Lamborghini Jalpa (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈxalpa]) was a sports car produced by the Italian automaker Lamborghini from 1981 to 1988. The Jalpa was a development of the earlier Silhouette. The Jalpa was intended to fill a role as a more "affordable" Lamborghini, being much less expensive than the Countach. Instead of the big car's V12, the Jalpa was fitted with a transversely-mounted 3.5 litre V8 that developed 255 hp (190 kW). The bodywork was designed and built by Bertone.

Following the Chrysler takeover Lamborghini product programs general manager Jack Stavana fitted a Jalpa V8 into a Dodge Daytona, linked to an AWD system designed by Carroll Shelby and called it the "Decepzione". Despite its performance, the project was never followed up due to the car having just 1.5 inches (38.1 mm) of ground clearance, necessitated by the comparatively tall engine block."

Interesting.

Re: Lamborghini powered AWD Daytona

I remember this very clearly in one of the major car mags.

When I left home to go active duty AF years ago, my mom (thanks Mom) threw out my car magazine collection. This was one of them.

Re: Lamborghini powered AWD Daytona

If you want pics of the drivetrain, then look no farther than the AWD system on the Pacifica and AWD vans. Those are iterations of that system as they describe it.
