Fuel injected bull: 1971 Lamborghini Espada

As the market law expects, with the rise of the values also of these “B-League” Lamborghinis, in the last period several projects are popping out from darkness.

Of course cars like the Espada are absolutely not “B-league” cars, and indeed they are becoming to have the recognition they always deserved as, like the Maserati Ghibli and Indy, they are top notch italian GT cars, plenty of style (Bertone) and power.

The Espada shares its engine with the second Lamborghini ever made, the 400 GT, but slightly more powerful as it produced 325 HP with the carburetors setup. This particular car was made for the U.S. market as it is fed by a fuel injection system (first time we see it on the Espada) and it was clearly abandoned and then cannibalized, but it still has a lot of potential. Of course restoring this car means a bucket full of money, so don’t go forward before having done your math homework. Find it for sale at $64,500 here in Los Angeles, CA.
