Lamborghini is a car manufacturer that has a distinctive, exotic design. Not infrequently, a car body that is already beautiful from birth is still able to be modified to get a more elegant and fierce appearance, such as with the addition of a widebody kit. And in general, the modifications applied to a Lamborghini car do not drastically change its appearance, people who see it can still identify that it is a Lamborghini. But what if there was a Lamborghini that was modified to the point where it’s hard to identify again? There was someone out there who turned a Lambo into a Hot Rod car.
Someone who has the name “XXXX Elo” is responsible for the creation of the Lamborghini Rat Rod wing, nicknamed the Espada Rat Rod. The Lamborghini Espada he modified was a car that was built from 1968 – 1978 to rival the Roll Royce Corniche. Rat Rod Espada was created in 2018 to commemorate the 50 th anniversary of Lamborghini Espada. Elo made this Espada Rat Rod for a person named Herve Castagno, owner of a car body repair shop in France, in collaboration with Alexandre Danton of Danton Arts Kustoms located in France as well.
In appearance with the four wheels that are seen sticking out of the car body, it appears that the Espada Rat Rod car is very wide, to be precise as long as 8.2 feet on the rear tire. It also appears that the window which was originally divided into two parts, now becomes one without a partition so that it looks very long. Espada which means sword is also seen on the body of the car which appears to be multiplying from front to back with a matte black color. The built-in V12 engine with a capacity of 3.9 liters is shown exposed without the very distinctive hood of the Hot Rod flow.
The interior has also been made very hot rod with its exposed sheet metal. Like the standard Espada, the hot rod version also retains the four-seater seat setting. This car is planned to be sold in the USA this year at a price of around 200,000-250,000 USD, and this car is legal to drive on public roads in the USA.
