Chassis # 8023

- High quality restoration
- Breathtaking design
- Mechanicals redone by Ciclet

Ferruccio Lamborghini presented his first true 4-seater in Geneva in March 1968. Were present in the range, the fantastic Miur,a the Islero 2 + 2 and the Espada. The very modern design of the bodywork by Nuccio Bertone of the latter contributed to its success. The Espada Series II, launched in November 1969, had a new more classical dashboard and a more powerful engine than the Series I.

This superb Espada, sold new in Germany according to the chassis plate, became a part of the collection, not very far from Rouen, in 1993. When the collector purchased the car, it had already been entirely redone by Ciclet Automobiles, with both the body and engine restored. The work had taken three years, with invoices showing the extent of the work. Over the years, the bodywork and the interior, which had not been touched, required an upgrade. The owner, eager to have a car in his collection in the same state of excellence as his others cars, asked his mechanic, to restore the body and to redo the interior. The in-depth work lasted another two years, with photographs attesting to the quality of work. The result is very impressive. The interior is in beige leather with piping in Havana-brown color, matching the dashboard. The woodwork has also been completely redone, as well as the carpets. The body was completely stripped bare before being fully repainted. The painting is flawless and is of impeccable quality. The mechanicals work well and all elements and accessories work.
This is an automobile that is in line with the legendary Lamborghini way of create stunning cars. This particular example is in a very nice condition, and ready to join a collection of high quality cars.
