One-off Lamborghini Concept S up for Auction

One-off Lamborghini Concept S up for Auction

Back in 2005, Lamborghini introduced the ‘Concept S’ to the world.  Based on the Gallardo, the Concept S was designed by Luc Donckerwolke, who described it as an “extreme and spectacular expression of the Lamborghini brand.”  

The car’s design was inspired by the classic single-seater racing cars of the past, with separate cockpits for the driver and passenger.  In place of a conventional windshield, the car features a pair of low-profile wind deflectors.

The first Concept S was a non-running show car, but in 2006, in response to growing interest in the roofless Gallardo, Lamborghini built a street legal version (pictured), equipped with a 5.0 litre V10 engine. 

Fast forward 9 years and this one-of-a-kind hyper car is due to be auctioned in New York this November.  As a unique example, and with just 111 miles on the clock, RM Sotheby’s expect the car to fetch up to £1.9m ($3m).
