Lamborghini Espada 1 2 (1971)

In 1968 Lamborghini introduced its first four seater model, the Espada. With typically outrageous styling the Espada, thanks to Bertone, the Espada featured all-round independent suspension and disc brakes. The interior trim was very luxurious although rear passengers were somewhat cramped.

The 3929cc V12 was front mounted and drove the rear wheels. Access to this engine was made easy by a lift-up front which featured exposed headlamps (most supercars of this era had "pop-up lamps".) Initially the Espada had 325bhp, later SII and SIII models came with 350bhp.
