The Espada was the first series production four-seater model in the history of Lamborghini. Of all the marque’s historic cars, it also boasts one of the highest numbers of units produced: 1,226 during its 10-year production run. The Espada’s characteristic lines are the fruit of a design by Marcello Gandini for Carrozzeria Bertone. It sits very low to the ground (standing at little less than 1.20 meters high) but is nevertheless extremely spacious.
The Espada was produced in 3 series: Series I (until January 1970), consisting of 176 units, Series II (until 1972), consisting of 578 units, and Series III, the last (until 1978), with 472 units. It was equipped with a longitudinal, front-mounted 4.0-liter (3,929 cc) V12 engine, with dual overhead camshafts, ranging from 325 to 350 CV, depending on the series and technical specs, and powered by 6 twin-barrel Weber carburetors, for a maximum speed of approximately 245 km/h. It was the first Lamborghini to be offered, on request, in a version with automatic transmission.
