The Open-Top Lamborghini Gallardo Concept of Your Dreams Is for Sale

by Heather Platt | Posted on Wednesday, November 6th, 2019

The Lamborghini Concept S, based on the Gallardo, was introduced as a non-running one-off at the Geneva Motor Show in 2005. Interest from potential buyers led the automaker to green-light the car for a limited production run of 100 units, but the costs ended up being too great, and the project was cancelled. There’s only one running example, and it’s coming up for auction this month.

Designed by Lamborghini’s then head of design Luc Donckerwolke, the Concept S was meant to be an extreme interpretation of the Gallardo Spyder. There’s no roof, and the cockpit is split into two areas. Each occupant gets their own windshield and roll bar. The center section acts as an air inlet for the 520-horsepower V-10 engine, and gives the car a distinct look.

The car has driven less than 124 miles since new, most of which was from moving the car to and from various shows, and around the lawn at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance (twice!). It’s coming up for auction on November 30 during RM Sotheby’s Abu Dhabi event. There’s no price estimate given, but given the car was sold by RM in 2017 at Monterey for $1.32 million, expect it to come in at somewhere around that price.
