Description

The Lamborghini Espada was in production from 1968 to 1978. A total of 1,217 examples was produced which makes this car one of Lamborghini’s most successful models. Three different series were produced. The most important differences were the technical specifications not visible to the naked eye, the car’s interior and the power of the engine. The exterior of the cars from these three series were practical identical. The car we have on offer belongs to the third series (Series III). Lamborghini fitted these third series with power steering and air conditioning so as to underline that this GT was especially intended for cruising. An automatic transmission also became available, and why not? It fitted the genes of this car just fine. The public apparently did not agree as only 55 cars with automatic transmission (of which 5 RHD cars) were sold. So the Espada Automatic can justifiably be called a very rare car. We do believe that this is actually the only Automatic on the market. This car was delivered in the US in 1975 by Claudio’s Italia Sportscar Inc. In 1984 the car was passed on to the next owner, and in 2006 this happened again. In 2008, the body was sprayed anew, but it retained its original colour. In 2012, the car came to Europe and was added to a car collection in Portugal. We acquired the car recently. A major maintenance was carried out on the car. We chose to replace two typical American elements, the impact bumpers and the blinkers on the side, by EU equivalents that are simply much more beautiful. The original parts will be supplied separately from the car.

De Lamborghini Espada werd gebouwd van 1968 tot 1978 en was voor het merk met een productie aantal van 1217 stuks een succesvol model. Er zijn drie verschillende series op de markt gebracht. De belangrijkste verschillen tussen de modellen waren technisch onderhuids, het interieur en het vermogen. Aan het uiterlijk veranderde vrijwel niets. De auto die wij aanbieden is van de derde serie (Series III). Deze derde serie werd door Lamborghini uitgerust met stuurbekrachtiging en airconditioning om het cruising karakter van deze GT extra te onderstrepen. Tevens werd een automaat leverbaar, en waarom ook niet? Ook dit paste prima bij de genen van de auto. Anders dan nu dacht het publiek daar toen kennelijk anders over want slechts 55 automaten (waarvan 5 RHD) vonden hun weg naar de klant. Dit maakt de Espada Automatic die wij aanbieden erg zeldzaam, op het moment van dit schrijven gaan wij er zelfs van uit dat dit de enige Automatic is op de markt. In 1975 werd deze auto geleverd in VS door Claudio’s Italia Sportscars Inc. In 1984 wisselde de auto van eigenaar en in 2006 gebeurde dit nogmaals. In 2008 werd de carrosserie herspoten in de bestaande originele kleur. In 2012 kwam de auto naar Europa en werd deel van een verzameling in Portugal. Wij kregen de auto recent in ons bezit. De auto kreeg een uitgebreide service-beurt en wij besloten om de typische Amerikaanse kenmerken, de “impact-bumpers” en de zijknipperlichten te veranderen in de veel mooiere EU-specificatie. De oorspronkelijke onderdelen worden los bijgeleverd.
