What Was the First Four-Seat Lamborghini?

The new 2022 Lamborghini Urus can seat four people comfortably. That said, it is an SUV, and it isn’t the first Lamborghini to seat four (up to five, actually). What was the first four-seat Lamborghini? Take a supercar road trip with us down memory lane as we get a look at the amazing V12 Lamborghini Espada 400 GT! 

Espada 400 GT the Legendary V12 Lamborghini 

The Espada 400 GT was, in fact, the very first of its kind – a four-seat Lamborghini. It ended up being the manufacturer’s best-seller for years. Unlike the cars they produce today (and harking back to the Lamborghini Miura from 1963 – 1973) that are mid-engine, the 400 GT has a massive V12 engine up front.  

Rather than create a track star that can do duty as a daily driver, the Lamborghini Espada 400 GT was intended to be a daily driver made to cruise the freeway at high velocity. The engine components were forged largely from aluminum, which means the engine is considerably lighter than typical cast iron motors. 

The Espada 400 GT was extremely fast for its time, capable of reaching 160 mph. It was able to keep up with the smaller and nimbler Miura in many conditions. In fact, the Espada was the fastest four-seater in the world at the time.  

Numerous celebrities from around the world have owned (or currently own) the Espada, including Sir Paul McCartney and comedian Jay Leno. Mr. Leno is an avid car collector and enthusiast who has expressed a fondness for the Espada.
