As a matter of fact, it was the very first car included in the auction and was expected to sell for between $2.4 million and $3 million. Unfortunately, it crossed the auction block without being sold.
It isn’t known exactly why the true one-off failed to find a new home but it is reported that bidding didn’t exceed the unknown reserve placed on the Italian supercar. While that’s a shame, it’s certainly not uncommon for valuable cars like this one to not sell at auction as the market doesn’t seem to be willing to pay whatever the reserve is, likely over $2 million.
Given how special the Concept is however, we would expect it to be placed for sale or making an appearance at another auction in the near future.
Rather amazingly, Lamborghini actually commissioned a 100 unit production run of the Concept S for its very best customers. But after this first example was produced, it was decided that it was too costly and time-consuming to produce. Despite not making it to production, the car has been shown around the world from Lamborghini’s own museum at its Italian factory through to two appearances at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
