I met the owner of this car at a car show, and he is beyond happy with his car. It got him a chance to go down to California for multiple car shows there including the unveiling of the Balboni Edition Gallardo. All the Lambos lined up, and his was the oldest. THEN Balboni arrived in a motorcade, and as soon as he stepped out, he went passed ALL the cars and straight to THIS Espada and embraced the owner. Balboni told him it brang back so many memorie of when he JUST got to work for Lamborghini, I think saying something to the effect that this was perhaps one of the first Lambos he ever sat in. He met the LAMBO GOD himself. AND guess what? Balboni then signed the car... under the hood. I got some pics of that too.
THIS guy was also fortunate to meet Jay Leno (another Espada owner) at another car show in California, and had a long talk about the car they love so much. THIS car... no matter how ugly (yes I must agree, it's a taste you must aquire) got this man around.
OH and the interior is VERY nice. I regret not asking the man if I could sit in it.
