It was 2005 at the Geneva Motor Show where Lamborghini took the wraps off the rather stunning Concept S. As the name implies, it was a concept based on the now defunct Gallardo, but with a non-running gear as it was initially developed purely for demonstrative purposes. However, the concept was very well received and Lamborghini decided to approve a limited production series in very few numbers. It didn’t go as planned as turning the concept into a production-ready model required lots of working hours and it was also a rather costly process.

As a consequence, Lamborghini abandoned the idea of rolling out a production series and this car - with the chassis 001 - is the only functional unit. The unique vehicle was elaborated at the Centro Stile Lamborghini in Sant'Agata Bolognese by Luc Donckerwolke who at that time was in charge of Lamborghini’s design while now he leads Hyundai’s design center. He took as foundation the Gallardo, but blended the car’s styling with the single-seater racing cars of the past which instead of a traditional windscreen featured a so-called “saute-vent” also installed on this concept.

As you can see, the interior cabin is divided into two distinct compartments which enable the Concept S to have a futuristic design, even though we are talking about a car dating from ten years ago. It should be mentioned Lamborghini fitted the concept with an electronically-controlled retractable central rearview mirror to allow the driver check out what is going on behind the vehicle.

It’s now heading to the auction block on November 18th at an event organized by RM Sotheby’s in New York City. The vehicle has been driven for just 180 km and appears to be in exceptional condition both inside and out. The one-off Lamborghini Concept S is expected to fetch anywhere between $2.4 and $3.0 million (152 million to 190 million INR).
