There's something about vintage Italian machinery. From the curvaceous lines of the Ferrari 250 GTO to the more exacting angles of the Lamborghini Espada, the cars hold the promise of something illicit. Something both scowling parents and stern-jawed law enforcement would thoroughly disapprove of if you happened to get caught in the act. It's one of the infinite reasons we love them, and the crew at Petrolicious have managed to capture that precipice of temptation on film.

CJ Bonura was kind enough to let the crew tag along during a little impromptu canyon run in his big silver Espada. The video eschews the typical owner interview in favor of more engine audio and an appropriate soundtrack. If the clip doesn't leave you wanting to jump into your own car for a quick sprint, we can't help you. Check it out in the video below, and stay tuned for more goodness from Petrolicious.

      The owner and car fit perfectly together. Great video yes its not earth shattering but not all of them have to be.

      Always loved the Espada. There's just something about a vintage granturismo I can't resist.

      The video is a bit odd, personally I think it focuses on the driver a little too much (tightens grip on steering wheel but then shows driver turning it with his fingers/open palm in the next shot?), but I have no gripes against the car. An old neighbor of mine had a black one (definitely compliments the body more than silver does on this one) and it was always a treat seeing and hearing it go by.

      My great uncle's small car collection consisted of a white espada, an aston DB6, and a detomaso mangusta. I always thought it the espada was so ugly. Unfortunately he sold the other two cars and only has the Espada left. Although I miss that mangusta I do appreciate the espada much more now. And it's amazing how comfortable it is to be in considering it was created when it seemed no one knew a thing about ergonomics.

      Weird video, almost like he is about to.... the car. Love and miss those crazy Lambo's and wish they would still make crazy cars like that. How fun would it be to have something like that with a V12 and 5 doors. And never noticed the odd placement of the stereo.

      Lambo wagon needs to return! Ditch the "crossover" market and take the world at the hands of something worth being labeled ugly...mmmm
