The Espada was one of the cars which made Lamborghini great. A full four seater luxury car with a top speed of over 150mph, it finally satisfied one of Ferrucio Lamborghini’s longest-standing ambitions: to produce in series a fast, comfortable Gran Turismo.
Stylistically derived from the futuristic Marzal show car of 1967, the Espada was unveiled at the 1968 Geneva Salon. Its name, as was becoming typical Lamborghini practice, bore a bullfighting significance; the espada is the toreador, the legendary matador born in the bullring, the king of the arena. The new car used the familiar 3,929cc V12 engine as seen in the Miura, whilst the level of passenger amenities was of the highest order, including air conditioning, fine leather upholstery and electric windows. The detail features of the Espada were a veritable encyclopaedia of style and innovation, distinguishing it as a car for the VIP with taste.
Finished in silver with matching dark red leather interior, this elegant Espada from the second series, is offered with a Swedish registration. The car is described by the vendor to be in excellent condition both technically and cosmetically.
Now considered by many Lamborghini collectors as the true executive express, with the capability of carrying four people effortless and in style.
