Lamborghini Espada Series II 1972
This is a car that needs no introduction. At its launch, the Espada was the fastest 4-seater in the world. It still packs a punch.
With only 51 right hand drive models of the Series II ever produced in its short production run from 1968-72, this particular Lamborghini is one of the rarest from the fabled Italian manufacturer. This particular unit also happens to be from the very last year before the later Series III Espada's took over. It features a 350bhp, 3.9 liter V12 that's fed by a whopping 6 Weber carburetors!
The Series II Espada's mainly featured extensive changes to its interior styling from its Series I predecessor, with a redesigned instrument cluster and center console chief among them. Exterior styling remained largely unchanged apart from a rear grille delete.
This particular unit features an engine that has had some recent work and is running well. The car could indeed benefit from some TLC in other facets of its mechanicals as well as on the cosmetic front. Regardless, the body and chassis is in good order, no doubt owing to its almost 2 decades on Malaysian shores.
The car comes complete with extensive documentation and service history, the extent of which might surprise.
A rare piece such as this does not come around often. As previously mentioned, only 51 RHD units were ever produced. Coupled with its extensive history, it makes a solid investment especially keeping in mind the grand prices fully restored examples fetch.
