The Lamborghini Marzal, with coachwork by Carrozzeria Bertone, was unveiled at the 1967 Geneva show. This concept was a four-seater and was the forerunner for the Espada, a genuine four-seater 1960s supercar. Named after a matador's sword, the Espada carried a 4-liter, four-cam V12 engine up front. The powerplant produced 325 horsepower and gave the Bertone-styled coupe a top speed of 240 km/h. Islero running gear was employed but wedded to a platform-type, semi-monocoque chassis.

The Series II cars were introduced in January of 1970 and came with a 25 bhp boost and a top speed of 250 km/h. They also had an improved dashboard layout and the option of power assisted steering. The dashboard was revised yet again in late 1972 for the Series III, which also incorporated power steering as standard, up-rated brakes, minor suspension improvements and a restyled front grille. Espada production ceased in 1978 after 1,217 of these cars had been built.

This Series II car has power steering from a Series III. It has been treated to a comprehensive 'rotisserie' restoration that was completed in 2011. Since then, it has covered only 500 kilometers. It is finished in Blue Notte (night blue) with Grigio Ghiacco (Ice Grey) leather interior.

In 2012, the car was offered for sale at the Monaco sale presented by Bonhams. The car was estimated to sell for €80,000 - 100,000 but bidding failed to satisfy the vehicle's reserve. It would leave the auction unsold.
