1972 Lamborghini Espada 400GT

Some cars are timeless in their appearance. Others, such as the Lamborghini Espada, shout what specific era they hail from. With brown metallic paint highlighting its hunkered down Bertone lines, this car screams the seventies. Not counting the off-road LM002, this V12 powered grand touring machine was the last four seater that Lamborghini produced on a mass scale. This Espada for sale in Ohio is an all original example that has seen but two owners over its 40 years on the road.

1972 Lamborghini Espada 400GT

Chassis # 8486, Engine# 40655. 1972 Lamborghini Espada 400 GT Series II, sable brown with a tan leather interior. 32,000 miles. Matching numbers, all original, always garaged. Wooden steering and Miura wheels. Two owner car from new. A beautiful body without any rust. The paint is very presentable. The interior is in immaculate condition. The leather is soft and supple. The mechanics are in excellent condition. The car has just received $5000 of mechanical work which includes new brakes and clutch. A very elegant driver that comes with all of its books and manuals as well as some records and the original toolkit, all tools are barely used (aside from the hammer.)

Spare tire and jack also included. An excellent opportunity to own an original, untouched Lambo! Many more pictures available upon request, please feel free to come and inspect the car. We can arrange worldwide shipping. $59,500 obo

The Espada, along with the Urraco and later Jalpa, are some of the most affordable Lamborghinis you can buy today. At almost $60,000, I would say the seller is being a bit optimistic. Only the very best Espadas will bring that kind of cash. With a fog lamp that is being held together with electrical tape and an undercarriage that appears a bit scruffy, well, I'm not so sure this is one of them. Originality aside, as it sits, this might be a $40,000 to $45,000 car.

    Hi Christoph,

    The seller has unfortunately taken the ad down off Hemmings Motor News. The cars featured here at CICFS are not our own, rather, we post listings from third party sellers.

    Thanks for reading,
