Lamborghini has been defined by the V-12 for all its history, though that's not the only engine configuration it's made. It's even done a few V-8s over the years, and to my ears, they sound pretty damn good.
Take the 3.5-liter V-8 in the Jalpa. With a cross-plane crank, it sounds a lot more American than, say, a Ferrari V-8, but there's still a tinge of exotica here. Lamborghini introduced this quad-cam V-8 for the entry-level Urraco in 1971 and kept it in production until 1988, when the Jalpa bowed out.
