Lamborghini Pregunta a one-off prototype on sale for $2.1 M
Lamborghini, over the years, has produced some of the most bonkers supercars, more than for its refinement these boyhood dream-machines were sold for its over-the-top looks. If you’re a die-hard fan of the Lamborghini then you’ll definitely remember Pregunta, a one-off concept car developed by French Carrosserie Heuliez with styling from Marc Deschamp’s studio during Lamborghini most difficult period. In the 90’s Lamborghini changed many hands until it finally was bought by Audi. Pregunta is Lambo’s last before it was sold to the German auto giant. It was created in 1998 and was introduced at the 98’ Paris Motor Show, and one year later was taken to the Geneva Motor Show. It was acquired by Autodrome, a French seller of rare and classic cars which has now put it up on sale for 1.6 million Euros ($2.1M US).
It was way ahead of its time, and don’t be surprised if you find resemblance between it and the latest – Lamborghini Veneno which was introduced this year. It’s based on Lamborghini Diablo platform but is rear wheel drive unlike the donor car. It’s got a V12 powertrain making 530bhp which gives it a top speed of 333 km/h (207 mph). Exterior mirrors are replaced by cameras and has internal fibre optic lightning, F1-type fully electronic instruments. It was coated in the same paint used on the French military’s Dassault Rafale fighter jet. Check out the video where it goes head-to-head with a Rafale on a runway and be mesmerized!
