Sorry I’m late. Some idiot in a red Lamborghini parked in my spot.

Following on from yesterdays dream pick up, earlier this year Bristol hosted a classic car show in the middle of town where I saw for the first time up close my all time favourite 2 + 2 sports car and by far my favourite Lamborghini.

Powered by a 3929 cc / 239 cui 325 hp 60 degree V12, this gorgeous if monstrous vehicle measures is 186 inches long, 73 inches wide and is 46 inches high, that’s just six inches higher than a GT 40 !

1217 Espada models were built from 1968 to 1978, the name refers to the sword used by Spanish bull fighters .

The Espada was designed by Marcello Gandini of Bertone and reminds me of the vehicles from the 1960’s sci fi puppet tv series “Thunderbirds”.

Late Kudos

To Alsatian Sebastian Loeb on lifting his all time record seventh World Rally Drivers Title !

And to Greg Biffle on winning at Kansas, looks like Jimmy is the target again huh ?

Go Happy ! Go Harvick ! Go #29 !
