For those of you who can remember far back enough to appreciate a real classic sports car, you might just be pleased to see a vintage 1972 Lamborghini Espada Series II is for sale on eBay, and the current bid is only $20,200. So if you hurry, this Italian sword can be yours for quite a bargain. The Lamborghini Espada Series II is powered by a V12 sourced from the sideways engined Miura S shifted with a 5 speed manual transmission and sucking down enough air through a set of carbs to make 350 HP, and while that may not sound like a lot, almost 40 years you needed a whole lot of detroit iron to get anywhere near those numbers.

The Series II Espada was actually known as the 400GTE when the Italian super car made its first appearance at the 1970 Brussels Motor Show. Aside from the updated exterior styling, the most noticable difference about the Series II was the new dashboard layout, while rear seat passengers are able to ride in even more comfort thanks to additional ventilation and the addition of lighting mounted in the center arm rest. So even if you have kids, or grand kids, or just need a place to put the dog and want to relive a dream from your child hood, then this Espada might just be what you are looking for.

Well I guess he wants to own a new car and his garage is full that is why he chooses to sell the espada because it’s quite old and outdated. But like other said, the performance and engine is quite reliable.

It is a rare collection car, so why sell it? Maybe this car’s owner is really want to have a space in his garage for his new car. If I have this kind of car I might keep it rather than sell it. Maybe its old but it’s engine’s performance are still reliable.
