Espada A real eye-catcher

1968 – During its ten-year production the Espada received several modifications. While the engine and the interior were changed with each new series, the design of the bodywork remained almost untouched. There just was no need for big redesigns since the Espada was a real eye-catcher right from the start.

Espada Power and comfort
