Known History

The story of this beautiful Espada is interesting. According to the several doucuments delivered by its current owner, the car would have changed hands just three times. Intended for the Spanish market, it was registered for the first time, on August 3, 1972, by its first owner, a banker from Barcelona. The second owner who sold the car in 2012, was a French property dealer living in Spain, near the French border, who owned it since 1986. This history makes it possible to consider that the mileage displayed on the odometer of about 72,000 km is genuine. The engine block is the original one. The car, red when new, was repainted in its original shade in 2016. Its beautiful livery is rare, combining the external color "Verde Acqua" to a "senape" leather interior. The carpets have been renovated respecting the period colors. In good general condition, this S2 has benefited since 2012 from various mechanical interventions, of which some have been carried out by the renowned Toni Sisinni. These include the replacement of the brake master cylinder, the clutch transmitter and receiver, the ignition coils and the central steering tie rod coils, as well as the restoration of the rear shock absorbers. The car has been serviced in June 2017, including a carburetors adjustment. This Espada is undeniably a very high class and exclusive GT.
