The Lamborghini Espada’s name means “sword” in spanish, and is a reference to the sword bullfighters use. The Espada was produced from 1968 to 1978, and had a few revisions during that time. The Series I ran from 1968 to 1970, and only 186 were made. Series II had a 350 hp engine, vented girling disk brakes, optional power steering, and an all new interior. 575 Series II Espadas were built between 1970 and 1972. The final version of the Espada, the Series III had a 3.9L V12 engine producing 325 hp. The interior was revamped to an aluminium trimmed cockpit. Newly designed wheels replaced the earlier knock-off wheels, and an automatic transmission was available for the Series III. A total of 476 Series III models were made before production was stopped.
