Espada S2 #8098 Interior

Espada S2 GTE - 578 Made Dec 1969 to Nov 1972


The Series II Espada was actually known as the 400GTE. It made its first appearance at the 1970 Brussels show. The most noticable difference on this car was the new dashboard layout. Rear seat passengers benefitted from additional ventilation and the addition of lighting mounted in the centre arm rest.

Ventilated brakes were added all around and a later running change brought new five-bolt wheels to replace the centre locking Miura rims. Lobro CV joints were added to the rear halfshafts and power steering became optional. The big change came with the compression boost to 10.7:1 as on the Miura S. Power increased from 325bhp at 6500 rpm to 350bhp at 7500rpm.

Only 51 factory RHD cars were built.
