Power came from Lamborghini's smooth, urable and powerful 3929cc 4-cam V-12. With fully independent suspension and a 5-speed gearbox it was a luxury gran turismo that equaled or bettered anything else on the market. Espada production ceased in 1978 after only 1,217 of these unique tourers had been built.
A desirable and rarely seen Series II Espada!
The Series II Espada was introduced in 1970 with more power and a new steering wheel, ashboard, nd grille, long with vented brakes and Miura style knock off wheels.Here is a remarkably original SII of Texas residency and 40 years of previous ownership. The Lamborghini displays just 32,000 actual miles which are said to be original by the previous owner. It is well preserved without corrosion issues or modification. Displaying a beautiful and fitting color combination, he interior's upholstery is original and intact showing a nice patina. Period radio, lass (with factory decals), rim and lenses appear original as well. The exterior cosmetics show a few blemishes but the overall look is very attractive, he Miura style Campagonolo gold wheels pair well to the ivory color scheme. An ideal driver or preservation class candidate, his particular car presents well for continued touring and casual use.
Recent services include a mechanical tune-up, s well as a complete brake system rebuild with all parts renewed by White Post Restorations. Espadas are often considered very practical classic Italian sports cars, enefiting from air-conditioning, ower windows, eather upholstery and the comfort of power steering. With its classic lines, nencumbered by the later heavy rubber bumpers and riding on its original Campagnolo knockoff wheels, ere is an incredibly honest original car, omplete with original owner's manual, ool bag, eriod tools, ack in pouch and spare. A desirable and rarely seen Series II Espada.
