Wonderful cars, it's long been on my 'lottery list' ever since I saw one in Kensington from the top deck of a bus whan I was a nipper. The beautiful silver Espada at last year's NEC Classic stopped me in my tracks, it looked like something from outer space...!



Watched this yesterday... what a fabulous car...

Thanks for the YouTube link. Fantastic.

And they used to call me as the Espada was considered ugly.

I remember seeing an espada in the window of a supercar dealer which was on Finchley Road, kindof opposite the Finchley Road & Frognal train station. It was silver. Date? 1982 ish?

Some fantastic cars on here, the silver one at the NEC looks especially superb, keep 'em coming

BTW, car 20 on the list can't be registered as '87JOPB' so will need editing!

I enhanced the image and I can see the word call on the labelling so maybe it's the control box for an early Car Phone or maybe CB radio?

I am asking people scattered around the globe if they can help in preparing a list of all the 160 UK supplied cars. I will need to re set the list by chassis number and then fill in the rest of the detail. If people have cars or chassis numbers or any other info can they please post it so we can build a definitive list as a permanent resource for us all to use?

Once done it will be there for everyone.

Hope people can join in.

Paul

Nice to see another lively thread about the Espada's.

Here's a picture for a rather unusual Espada; the 4-door Faena, which I saw at a concours in Germany 3 years ago.

Kevin Crauwels,
