Just doing some research and come across a few interesting things.

This is one of them, so I thought I would share.

Designed by Bertone in 1974, the Bravo was supposed to be produced as a "baby-Miura". The project was cancelled but many styling elements were adopted on later cars.

The Lamborghini Bravo was unveiled by Bertone at the 1974 Turin Auto Show as a fully-functional concept vehicle.

Based on mechanical components from the P300 Urraco, the Bravo was supposed to go into production as a "baby-Miura" - as it was called in the preliminary project: for this reason it was extensively tested (more than 40.000 miles) before the launch.

In the tradition of the brand, the name "Bravo" came from a breed of Spanish fighting bulls.

Unfortunately, during those years Lamborghini ran into economical crisis. By 1974 Ferruccio Lamborghini had sold his shares and the Bravo project was finally cancelled.

Today the Lamborghini Bravo prototype is on display at Bertone's private Museum.

I remember this one (well, not literally from when it happened :p ) - I actually made (or contributed heavily to) a thread on Fchat a few years ago all about concept models and I think a lot was specifically Bertone based, was a lot of fun researching all that stuff - if I get bored I might do it again in more depth here.
