The World's Only Rat Rod Lamborghini Espada Is Placed on Auction

The Espada model itself is a rare car and simply has no analogues.

The unique supercar, Lamborghini Espada, from the 1970s with frenzied tuning will be placed on Mecum Auctions. The sellers expect to get $200-250 thousand for a unique rat rod.

Lamborghini built only 1217 four-seat GT Espadas, which now means a high price and a significant rarity for such cars. Only few retro car enthusiasts will raise a hand on such an icon. The French Studio Danton Arts Customs still decided to do this in the most drastic form.

The tuners dedicated their project to the 50th anniversary of the Espada model. The car underlying the rat rod was released in 1968. The Danton craftsmen saved the original V12 engine but removed the body, as well as the vehicle glasses and all the extra stuff from the interior. Instead, the car got large and wide wheels with Michelin tires, Reventon air intakes and a lot of metal plates with rivets.

Mecum Auctions will be held in Kissimmee, Florida, next month.
