50 Years of the Lamborghini Islero and Espada

Lamborghini Islero

Lamborghini is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its Espada and Islero models and is marking the occasion with a complete restoration of these cars from their museum collection together with a dedicated tour. The Islero was made from 1968 to 1970 and was equipped with a 4.0-liter V12 engine with dual overhead camshafts. It’s a rare car with only 225 units produced of the two versions of the Islero. There were 155 of the first version and only 70 of the Islero S version which had larger tires and a wider wheel gauge. The Espada was Lamborghini’s first series production four-seater model. In contrast to the Islero which it shared its birth year, the Espada was produced in large numbers as it was Lamborghini’s most popular model. Lamborghini produced 1,226 units during its 10-year run which ended in 1978. Lamborghini is touring these cars first in their birth country, Italy, from September 7 to 11.
