Ferruccio Lamborghini had the expectation to build a four-seater supercar. As such, he announced the Espada at the 1968 Geneva Motor Show, fulfilling his absolute desire.
Marcello Gandini gave to Espada a style which represented the merge of two futuristic Bertone cars: of ‘Marzel’ based on ‘Miura’, bearing the glass transparent doors that allowed the view of Mrs. Lamborghini’s attractive legs and of ‘Pirana’, based on an experimental model for Jaguar E-Type.
This specific car was acquired by the Museum through auction in Great Britain.
