Show Up At Fashion Shows In A Rare Lamborghini Murcielago Versace

Car fanatics wondered what would become of Lamborghini after moving under the close watch of Audi and the Volkswagen Group in 1998.

Three years later, though, with the unveiling of the Murcielago, they were relieved to see that the Italian brand DNA remained intact under the new ownership.

The successor of the Diablo was offered as a Coupe or a Roadster, and came in lots of special editions. One of them was the Versace, and was created in collaboration with the famous Italian luxury fashion company.

It was produced in only 20 units, in both body styles, out of which only 8 were manufactured in right-hand drive. This makes the Murcielago LP640-4 Versace a very rare sighting, and should see the example pictured in the gallery below sell for £150,000-£170,000 ($195,372-$221,422 / €168,332-€190,777), as per SilverstoneAuctions’ estimates.

Identified as number 19, this Murcielago was initially shipped to New Zealand in 2007, where it remained until 2017. That’s when the current vendor discovered it while purchasing a De Tomaso Pantera, and brought both to the United Kingdom.

The Murcielago Versace was first registered in Britain on April 1 of the same year, and has an MoT valid until August 2019. The odometer reads 11,300 km (~7,000 miles), and it’s in great overall condition, accompanied by a full service history and, of course, a Versace-branded luggage set.

The auction house will auction it off at their event that takes place at the Dallas Burston Polo Club, in Southam, UK, on September 29.

  • Not a Versace buyer

    Actually I’ve alway secretly liked the Versace patterns in this Lambo. Especially back then when just having a quality contrast stich on leather was special enough.

    Nowadays crazy stich/perforation patterns in leather produced en mass adorn numerous everyday vehicles forcing top end vehicles to often offer an overcomplicated hot mess, sigh
