The Only Lamborghini At The Hillsborough Concours

by Mike –

Early Sunday morning was a good time to drive from Carmel to Hillsborough, stopping in Los Gatos to pick up a friend. There were few cars on the road and the temperature was very comfortable.

Later in the day at the Hillsborough Concours d’Elegance the heat may have suppressed the spectator turnout.

I was surprised that my Lamborghini Espada was the only Lamborghini there out of more than 200 cars and motorcycles.

The drive home included high temperature driving, with a few traffic stops. I watched the coolant and oil temperature gauges move up and down with the outside temperature. Thankfully they both dropped to normal levels as I approached the coast and happily the air conditioning worked well on this 240 mile round trip drive in the Espada.

    Nice to see the Espada on the green and it looks like you had perfect weather. I started using Evans waterless and since then I have never worried about running hot or boiling over.

    Great looking Espada. Love the color.
