Known History

 

1971 Lamborghini Espada Series II

s/n 8728, Engine no. 40831

Miura Blue with Two–Tone Leather

 

Famous for their audacious, innovative, and impossible to ignore designs, Lamborghini was the one and only automobile manufacture capable of creating the Espada. Boasting an impressive grand touring specification with its 350 hp, quad-cam V12 engine, and seating for 4, the Espada was Lamborghini’s answer to Ferrari’s 365 GTB/4 “Daytona”. The Espada was a more sensible purchase than the concurrently offered Miura, yet remained captivatingly bizarre. It was, up to that point, Lamborghini’s most successful model, with 1,217 cars built between 1968 and 1973.

 

This particular example is an exceptionally strong car, both mechanically and cosmetically. It is numbers matching engine and chassis, with correct number stampings throughout. Records on file indicate 19,000 miles, as shown, is original. Special ordered with two- tone leather interior, custom made for Edgar Cini III. Also equipped with desirable Borrani wire wheels. Recent service by Dino Motors.

 

It is rare to find such a well maintained and structurally solid example of these impressive grand tourers. The Espada represents outstanding value when compared to Ferraris of the era, and in many ways, is a more well appointed and impressive car. At the very least, the Espada provides for an interesting conversation topic, and makes a statement of uniqueness on arrival.
