Lamborghini Espada Gets Chopped into Rad Rod Shape, V12 Is Exposed

Aficionados across the world have wished for Lamborghini to bring back front-engined Grand Tourers for decades now. And while Sant'Agata Bolognese is currently busy catering to the needs of the SUV clientele, it seems that a French shop has decided to take this matter into its own hands tools.

The specialist decided to revive the Espada, the comfortable four-seater animated by a V12. However, instead of pursuing the usual path, it looks like the shop used a Frankenstein-like plan.

And this is how we ended up with the contraption we have here. This four-wheeled beast is a Lamborghini rat rod. Judging by the media at the bottom of the page, it looks like Danton Arts Kustoms, the shop behind the build, could've used the body of an actual Espada.

For one thing, the Raging Bull V12 is certainly there, with the engine being exposed for everyone to see.

The chopping and fabrication work was extensive and this covers the body of the car, the interior, as well as the tech side - check out the new wheel setup and you'll understand.

Alexandre Danton, the builder who seems to run the shop, came up with the Lambo after completing other projects of the sort. For instance, here's a pair of air-cooled Porsches that received even deeper transformations, being fitted with a front-mounted Big Block or a front-mounted Bentley Turbo V8.

Given the fact that the Italian automotive producer only brought a little over 1,200 units of the Espada to the world, we wish the car we have here wasn't based on actual Lamborghini, being a modded replica instead.

For instance, this is how the Liberty Walk-widebodied Lamborghini Miura can be described, with the polarizing build being based on a Ford GT40... replica.

And while many human car lovers might be puzzled by these builds, it seems that the shop's dog absolutely adores both the Lambo and the Porscha.
