Pink 1974 Lamborghini Espada
Spotted in Long Island, New York is a Pink 1974 Lamborghini Espada for $150,000 USD. This is a one owner car and has been featured in several automobile magazines. It was restored in 1992 and has recently undergone a master cylinder replacement and full inspection. This was car left the factory in dark green and the female owner had the car painted in pink with matching new interior. The odometer shows 98,832 miles but seller admits it is broken. He estimates the true mileage to be closer to 110k miles. There are many maintenance receipts and photos documenting the life of the car since new. The car includes the window sticker from the dealer showing the suggested retail price was $32,750. The seller is asking $150,000 which seems optimistically high. The mufflers seem to show pink over spray which raises some questions. This is a Series III (S3) car which has the second redesign of the dashboard with aluminium trimmed interior. The wheels were change form knock offs to a 5 bolt design. The S3 cars are recognizable by the square instead of hexagonal mesh grille. Lamborghini produced a total of 465 Series 3 Cars.

The Espada used a monocoque steel body. Suspension was fully independent, with double wishbones, coil springs, hydraulic shock absorbers and anti-roll bars.four wheel disc brakes Twin fuel tanks held 95 l (25 US gal) of gasoline; the fuel cap was hidden behind a black cosmetic grille in the C-pillar, one of Gandini’s signature touches.
Its 3,929 cc (240 cu in) V12 engine breathed through six Weber side-draft carburators and 24 valves commanded by two chain-driven overhead camshafts per bank. The gearbox was mounted in block with the engine. Most transmissions were manual, and the Espada also introduced one of the first automatic transmissions able to transfer the torque of a large sporting V12. It had unusual gearing, with 3 ratios: drive, 1 and reverse. When leaving the factory it originally fitted Pirelli Cinturato 205VR15 tyres (CN72).
