Vehicle Description

This Lamborghini Espada was built in 1970, it is an early series 2 model. It was originally delivered in Italy and was at that time painted in a rare factory colour, gold metallic. In the meantime, the car spent several years in the US. Around seven years ago, it was brought back to Europe and has recently been registered in Austria, where it was painted in its current colour, an individual yellow slightly tinged with green.
Based on a solid body substance, the Espada is awaiting manageable visual and technical improvements. Under the large hood, the matching numbers car has the magnificent V12 engine installed. Fed by 6 twin carburettors, it produces 239 kW (325 hp) of power and can propel the 4-seater Gran Turismo to a top speed of 245 km/h. The Espada runs on Campagnolo magnesium alloys on knock-off hubs. It also features a beautiful wood steering wheel, power windows, air conditioning, quarter vents in the rear and a full-sized spare tyre in the dry and clean boot.
The Lamborghini comes with Austrian registration documents and a Lamborghini heritage certificate.


Espada is Spanish and means sword – not just any, but the one used by the Torero in a bullfight. Ferruccio Lamborghini was fascinated by bullfighting and many of his cars carry names inspired by it, as is his company logo. He had founded his sports car manufacturing business in 1963 and when he presented the Espada at the 1968 Geneva Motor Show, this was already his fourth model. While sharing the same 4.0 litre V12 engine with the 400 GT, Miura and Islero, the Bertone-styled Espada was based on a different concept altogether: Its height of not even 1.2 metres notwithstanding it was a grand touring coupé and a full 4-seater at that, owing to its rear window layout with a large, flat window and a second, vertical pane underneath. The Espada remained in production for a full 10 years, during which it received two facelifts, in 1970 and again 1972. Both focussed mainly on interior redesign, changes on the outer appearance were minimal – for instance, the Series I and II used tail lights from the Fiat 124 Sport Coupé, while for the Series III, they were sourced from the Alfa Romeo 2000. Although most Espadas came with a manual gearbox, an automatic transmission was also available. In total, 1,217 units were built, far more than of most other Lamborghini models.
