Espada became Lamborghini’s best seller from 1968 to 1978. This 4-seater designed and built by Carrozzeria Bertone, seats the whole family and takes all their luggage, effortlessly reaching a maximum speed of 250 km/h. Depending on the version, the 4-litre 12-cylinder engine develops between 325 and 350 HP and is liked equally for its sound and power. With 1,227 models produced – and since 1974 also available with a Chrysler automatic 3-gear gearbox– the Espada was the backbone of the company in financial terms, for eleven years.
