A prototype, and as such a unique car. The Lamborghini Concept S is one of the cars more exclusive and special that your money can afford. So the mere fact of meeting him at an auction is in itself a unique opportunity for any collector, for any passionate Lamborghini. The Concept S that you see in these images was created from the Lamborghini Gallardo, first as a design exercise to assess the possibility of launching a Gallardo without a roof, and later, with the unity of which we speak in these moments, as the prototype fully functional. In fact, this Lamborghini Concept S can be used legally on the road.
The complex of their production, and their high cost, dissuaded Lamborghini to produce the 100 units of the Concept S that had initially planned.
From the presentation of a model, as a design exercise, at the Geneva motor show of 2005 until the creation of the final prototype, Lamborghini showed its intentions to launch a spin very limited, only 100 units, of this car. I was supposed to be the object of desire is perfect for your best customers.
unfortunately in the Lamborghini does not come out in the accounts. Its cost had been too high, as well as the intricacies of its production. Hence, finally Lamborghini chooses not to produce more units than this, the prototype Lamborghini Concept S.
What is incredible, without a doubt, is that last week the bidders of the auction is Driven by Disruption of New York does not pujasen by him, and this car not to find a new owner. The Lamborghini Concept S has travelled, since its creation in 2006, only 180 kilometers, all of them accumulated during the initial testing, after their production, and small tours, and has performed at events such as the Concours d’elegance of Pebble Beach in 2006 and 2008.
The Lamborghini Concept S was launched with a starting price of 2.400.000 dollars and it was expected that it could reach figures close to 3 million euros. By comparison, in New York subastaron those days a Countach LP400 S by close to a million, and a Lamborghini Miura P400 SV by 2.420.000 dollars (2.230.000€ at the current exchange rate).
