Lamborghini Espada Reviewed: Too Weird, Or Just Weird Enough?

Believe it or not, every once in a while Lamborghini built cars that seated more than just two people, even before the Urus ever materialized from concept form to an SUV you can order today.

Aside from the LM002, which obviously seated more than just a driver and a front passenger, the automaker also came up with the Estoque sedan concept, back in 2008, which (sadly) was ditched in favor of the super SUV.

Long before that ,though, there was the Espada, a four-seat grand touring coupe built between 1968 and 1978, this one here, tested by Doug DeMuro in Dubai, being a 1973 Series 3 model.

In its glory days, its 3.9-liter V12 put down 325 PS (321 HP), which today may not sound like a whole lot, but at the time it was an impressive figure. Aside from sitting quite comfortably behind the wheel, DeMuro also noticed that the car was actually quick enough to put a smile on his face - although the exhaust note had something to do about that, too.

Overall, he was impressed with it dynamically, especially for a car that was built 40 years ago. You can check out his full review in the video that follows right below.
