Launched in 1968, the Lamborghini Espada was a 4-seater GT and Lamborghini’s most famous model to date. Inspired by the Marzal show car, the Espada was designed by Bertone and penned by Marcello Gandini. The hood was wide and simple, circular quad headlamps gave harmony to the front end, and the almost horizontal roofline was met by the smooth curve starting from the front fender lines. The front-mounted 4-liter V12 was bolted to a 5-speed gearbox. Series II models were introduced in 1970 and featured a more refined steering wheel, a cleaner dashboard, vented brakes, a revised grille and 25 additional horsepower. The GT was produced for a decade before the Lamborghini Faena replaced it.
