Evaluation: Very early Espada, sold new in Italy. Represented with the original engine and with a full restoration a few years and 200 km ago, certified by Lamborghini Polo Storica. The chrome looks a little tired but the paint is mostly excellent aside from a small chip behind the passenger’s door. Some light scratching on the rear and side glass. Excellent fully restored interior with new leather showing absolutely no wear. Fully restored underneath. An almost like new Espada, but not quite.
Bottom Line: This car hammered not sold at Artcurial Retromobile last year at a €190,000 ($208,050) high bid. That was a generous amount and so was this one. The consignor took the hint after it was bid to a reported €165,000 on the virtual block and let it go at this negotiated price.
