Is Any New Car Weird Enough To Be A Modern Espada?

CountersteerYour true stories of good and bad things that happen in cars.

The Lamborghini Espada remains one of the coolest cars ever made. Why? Because it was a grand-tourer with room for four adults behind its supercar-grade V12 plucked from the Miura. Also, it had bizarre shooting brake/liftback styling. Is any car built today weird enough to match it?


I would argue that the Ferrari FF is indeed weird enough to match the Lamborghini Espada.

The Ferrari might not be as elegant as the Lambo (that feels weird to type), but it makes up for that with a one-of-a-kind all-wheel-drive system using a second gearbox mounted to the front of its 6.3 liter V12. It's hard to top that for weirdness.


And weirdness counts for coolness in the high-dollar car world, which is too often devoid of daring styling or design these days.

What new car do you think is strange enough to match the Espada?
