Because it’s Monday: Let’s Have a Summer Affair

Robert Emslie February 27, 2017 Because it's Monday 3 Comments

The 1971 film Il Sole Nella Pelle (American Title Summer Affair) is notable for two things: its lead, Ornella Muti, whom you might remember as Ming the Merciless’ conniving daughter in the Sci-Fi classic Flash Gordon, and a scene set in the Lamborghini factory, filled with all kinds of equally lovely Lambos.

The plot of the Italian drama is wholly forgettable, involving something to do with Muti’s character running off with a hippie, and eventually ending up shipwrecked on a Mediterranean island where her industrialist father sends the cops to hunt the couple down and bring home the wayward teen. Along the way we get to see this scene which is filled with Miura P400 S, Jarama and Espada cars, as well as a glimpse inside the Sant’Agata Bolognese factory. Thankfully it spares us the rest of the film. Enjoy!

    OK, caption contest time. Just the 3 seconds or so of the guys talking over the Miura rear subframe.
    “But this isn’t the SV model.” “Don’t worry it will still burn just as good.”

      This part doesn’t fit. It was clearly meant for our competitors in Sant’Agata Arrabiata!
