Built between 1968 and 1978, the Lamborghini Espada was based on the Marzal show car presented at the 1967 Geneva Auto Show. This four-seater GT was a popular model and sold at 1217 units, which made it the most successful Lamborghini to date. Designed by Marcello Gandini at Bertone, the Espada offered four comfortable seats and extra room for luggage. Espada is the Spanish for sword and refers to the sword used by the Torero to kill the bull in a Corrida. In 1968, the first series of Espada were built, known as the S1. The dashboard featured octagonal supports for the main instruments with an additional binnacle for the secondary gauges. For the wheel, a similar design as the one seen on the Miura was used.
186 units of the 1968 Lamborghini Espada S1 were made between 1968 and January 1970, before the S2 model came out.
