Lamborghini Faena

Lamborghini never really considered a 4-door car, but focused on fast sportscars and 2+2 sportscars such as the 400 GT 2+2 and the Espada. Based on a Espada S2 from 1970 (serial number 8224), Pietro Frua designed the first and only 4 door sports saloon for Lamborghini (except for the recently launched Estoque Concept in 2008). The spectacular car was launched on the 57. Salone internazionale dell´Automobile in Turin as the Frua Faena or Lamborghini 400 GT2 Espada 4P. It’s a stunning looking car with a lot of details of the donor car Espada, such as the rear side and interior. The front of the Faena is however completely new and pretty modern for it’s time with with twin headlights each mounted in a pop-up unit. Why the car wasn’t a success isn’t clear. Probably because it didn’t fit in Lamborghini’s strategy (same as for the Ferrari Pinin 2 years later). Pietro Frua was a bit disappointed because he wanted to build this beautiful four door car in smaller numbers for special clients. It remained at only one prototype car as seen on the picture here.
