A glorious silver Lamborghini Islero S racer that was prominent in the 1970 film ‘The Man Who Haunted Himself’ and driven by the legendary Roger Moore will go to auction in March 2020 with an estimate of £270,000 – £285,000.
The ‘square-tubed’ chassis Islero was developed from the 400GT 2+2, which was itself derived from Ferruccio, Lamborghini’s first production car, the touring-styled 350GT of 1964. Named after the legendary bull that killed Spain’s most iconic matador, ‘Manolete’, produced around 350bhp and could be distinguished by its flared wheel arches, vented front wings and a revised interior with more supportive seats and improved instruments and switchgear.
Sir Roger Moore – Lamborghini Islero S
One of only five righthand drive examples ever produced, this particular example was driven by Sir Roger Moore in the motion picture, ‘The Man Who Haunted Himself’. It was Moore’s last movie before taking over from the iconic Sean Connery as 007 and is considered by many, Moore included, to be his best work. He played both Harold Pelham, a conventional city businessman and his doppelganger, an urbane Bond-like individual.
The classic spirited Italian is being offered by Historics with various paperwork, including DVDs relating to Sir Roger Moore and the car itself. The photographic history of its restoration by Gantspeed Engineering and a considerable amount of invoices showing historical and recent work carried out is also featured.
Dry stored by the present owner, the Lamborghini Islero S looks to be in beautiful condition with its sumptuous leather interior intact and still retains its original Blaupunkt Blue Spot radio, in working order, while the provision of modern adjustable shock absorbers means that the ride is superb.
