The Lamborghini Espada

Lamborghini’s 3.9 litre, V12 powered, four-seat, Espada was designed by Marcello Gandini at Bertone, going into production in 1968. Its long bonnet, sleek lines and comfortable interior made it an ideal grand touring candidate, often seen cruising the autostradas in Italy and Europe throughout the late 1960’s and 1970’s.

The name ‘Espada’ comes from the Spanish language, where it means ‘sword’, and used by Lamborghini in reference to the sword that the Torero uses to kill the bull in Corrida, Spanish bull fighting.

The car we are offering here was sold new through Official Lamborghini concessionaire, Garage Foitek, in Zürich. It completed build in June 1969 finished in white with a black interior and first registered on 7th July 1969 in Switzerland. This is a Series 1 Espada, being fitted with the more desirable early dashboard with futuristic instrument binnacle surrounds.

More recently, the car was serviced at Lamborghini St.Gallen, Switzerland, in June 2016. At this time the car was noted as displaying 84,426 kilometres. The service included engine, gearbox and differential oil changes, front and rear brake calliper rebuilds along with the carburettors being stripped and thoroughly cleaned. The petrol tank was also replaced and the spark plugs replaced, ensuring the car is presented in mechanically sound condition.

The Series 1 Espada offered here is a very original example, presented with its original engine and having freshly been service by official Lamborghini dealers in Switzerland, a great opportunity to acquire an Espada to be driven and enjoyed.
