1968-1978 LAMBORGHINI Espada specifications Classic and Performance Car

In 1968, Ferruccio decided to built a full four-seater Gran Turismo, and it was presented as the Espada 400 GT. Its styling was inspired by the memorable Marzal concept car of 1966, and maintained that car’s expansive proportions, despite now being front-engined. The first Espada prototype retained the Marzal’s gullwing door-design, but this was abandoned for the production model. The styling of the Espada was sensational, a real head-turner. Despite its four-seater layout, the Espada handled its two-seater sisters.
