Earlier this month we informed you the one-off 2005 Lamborghini Concept S is about to hit the auction block and now we bring a detailed look of the special vehicle which is currently on display in Sant’Agata Bolognese at the company’s famous museum. This is basically a speedster conversion based on the now defunct Gallardo and as you can see it has an interesting interior cabin layout as the driver and the passenger are separated by the center console which extends all the way to the back.
When the concept was originally unveiled, it was only a show car and lacked the running gear but many were so pleased with the end result that Lamborghini actually decided to turn the concept into a limited-run production model. However, the plan fell apart after they discovered it’s a time-consuming process to make the necessary changes and it was also very expensive, so it didn’t represent a viable business case.
As a consequence, Lamborghini decided to stop development of the Concept S, but not before transforming the original concept into a fully functional car. Even though it’s now ten years old, the vehicle has been used for merely 180 km and as you can see from the attached footage it appears to be in an excellent condition, as it should be since it has been maintained in the last decade by Lamborghini itself.
Those with very deep pockets who are willing to pay top money for the 2005 Lamborghini Concept S should know the vehicle is due to hit the auction block on November 18 and is expected to bring $2.4 - $3.0 million. The vehicle will be sold at the Art Automobile sale in New York, United States at a special event organized by RM Sotheby’s.
Taking into account that only one car exists in the entire world, we won’t be surprised if ten years from now the value of the Concept S will be much higher.
