1972 Lamborghini Espada 400 GTE

The Lamborghini Espada was introduced to the world in 1968 and was intended to meet customer's desires for a four-seater in the lineup. Power was from a dual overhead cam 12-cylinder unit. The Espada would prove to be the most successful model at the time, selling 1,200 cars over its production run.

Lamborghini introduced the second series Espada at the 1970 Brussels Salon. It brought with it minor changes including a revised dashboard, and the center console was fitted with additional lighting for rear passengers. Ventilated disc brakes were installed and power steering could be purchased as an option. Horsepower rose from 325 to 350, thanks to a higher compression ratio of 10.7:1.

From December 1969 to November 1972, 575 examples were produced.
