Photo of the day: Lamborghinis and a Tuscan villa

This is the dream, right? Two classic Lambos pose amongst Italian scenery

A villa in the Italian countryside flanked by a pair of Lamborghinis. If you had to summarise ‘lottery win’ in one photo, this might be it. ‘Classy lottery win,’ anyway.

And not necessarily a large one. While the price on ads for London flats tends to be the same length as the phone number, the Tuscan property market operates at a much friendlier level. The Espada and Islero play their part by being significantly more affordable than a Miura of the same era.

Rather than being the boastful Instagram shot of an actual lottery victor, though (it’s a classy winner, don’t forget) this is a little snapshot from Lamborghini’s recent 20-strong tour through the famously un-ugly Tuscany and Umbria regions to celebrate the 50th anniversary of both cars.

Launched in 1968, the Espada was Lambo’s first four-seater, while the Islero was a 2+2 GT car. Both use a 3.9-litre V12, and the latter car is spectacularly rare. Correct pronunciations of its name are barely more common, either…
