    I always view those cars as Muscle cars insead of an exotic. :) They pack alot of punch for being a big 2+2 coupe.

    Its got a unique design that you don't see on anything else on the road.

    I think it's ugly, but I would still like to own one!

    Looks like a 500HP wagon.

    Philippe,
    Looks good, I am looking forward to seeing it at Pocono. With a little luck we could have a nice turnout of Espadas. We'll have to feature the Espada soon. This year it is the Islero. Right now it looks like we have 7 Isleros (World Record) scheduled to be there.

    The color is fantastic!!! When I first saw an ESPADA in the mid-70ies I was stunned. Until today it was -for me- the most incredible 4-seater on this planet!

    Ciao!

    Great idea!

    I always loved Espadas.

    here are some scans (horrible sorry) of the one owned by someone who was like an older brother to me 25 years ago: he even picked up girls for me when I was shy:) we went from Paris to geneva for the show in 83 in this car and his girlfriend, a very sweet Moroccan girl, was knitting in the backseat as we sailed down the autoroute at 220kph!

    It was left hand drive but he bought it in England, he had it in Neuilly (near Paris) but kept the English plates as it was convenient in case of speeding tickets.
    I lost touch with them when I moved to the US in 1990.

    Does anyone know of the whereabouts of this car?

    It is shown on page 75 of that lousy little book Lamborghini supreme amongst exotics at a Goodwod track day: that photo shows the cars color more accurately. I have very fond memories of that car! We had massive understeer in a hairpin turn near Geneva and damn near clobered the rockface minutes befoe I took these shots.

    Best regards,

    Marc

    Thank you Marc, great story.

    I love the retros in the middle of the front bonnet. Very 1960s!

    Phillipe,
    I know introduced at the same show as the Islero. If you want to rally the Espada owners, I'm sure the Islero owners would be happy to share the 40th Anniversary cake.
