Two classic Lamborghinis will cross the block at this month’s Silverstone Auctions sale in Warwickshire – and we’re sure we’re not alone in feeling a lot of love for them.
The oldest is a 1974 Espada Series 3 (above), which is expected to sell for between £90,000 and £110,000.
It’s a one-owner car that’s covered just 26,000 miles, it’s finished in Black Cherry with a burgundy interior, and it’s the 50th from last of the 1225 built.
The car has been well maintained all its life and has recently benefited from a transmission overhaul, cylinder-head rebuild and full service by Classic Workshop Ltd in Bicester, which cost £4668.
Non-standard items include the retrofitted electronic ignition system, high-torque starter motor and braided fuel lines.
The Espada will be sold with its original toolkit, jack and spare wheel and, interestingly, an original pair of Lamborghini Cologne leather-bound flasks.
Like your Lambos a little younger – and brighter? How about this 1996 Diablo SV.
This former Alpine Radio press and show car has a pre-sale estimate of £130,000-£150,000 and is one of only 33 right-hand-drive UK cars.
First registered on 14 June 1996, this 517bhp V12-powered, Giallo Yellow Diablo has covered 33,473km (20,000 miles), wears new SV decals and has an Alcantara-trimmed cabin with yellow stitching.
It was in long-term storage before undergoing a service at The Ferrari Centre in Kent, which cost an eye-watering £12,300 just 1500km (930 miles) ago.
This pair, as well as a 2007 Murcielago LP640-4 Versace Edition and Sir John Whitmore’s E-type, are going under the hammer at Silverstone Auctions’ September Sale, at the Dallas Burston Polo Club in Southam, Warwickshire, on 29 September.
