From the $4.5 million Veneno to the $2 million Centenario or the $1.4 million Reventon, Lamborghini is one of the most expensive car brands on the market. Recently, the brand set a new price record with a 1971 Lamborghini Miura fetching an impressive price of 2,423,750 euros (approx. $2,963,010) at RM-Sotheby’s Paris auction on February 13, 2021.
Inspired by the news, we went through the collection of Lamborghini cars currently listed on JamesEdition and chose the 13 most expensive and extraordinary vehicles: from the rarest supercars to all-time classics (Hello, Miura!) and some possible future collectibles.
12. 2021 Lamborghini Huracan STO: the most expensive and radical version of the brand’s entry-level supercar
Price: approx. $366,734
The 2021 Huracan STO is already known as Lamborghini’s maddest Huracan and the most radical road-going version of the brand’s entry-level supercar. The car for sale will be physically available by October-December 2021. What do we know about it so far? The Huracan STO features extreme aerodynamics and track-honed handling dynamics, lightweight contents, and the highest-performing V10 engine to date which boosts the top speed to 310 kmh (192.6 mph) and a supercar-worthy acceleration of 0-100 kmh (0-60 mph) in 3 seconds.
11. 1994 Lamborghini Diablo SE30: a media star in iconic “Lambo Thirty” metallic purple
This Lamborghini Diablo SE30 finished in iconic “Lambo Thirty” metallic purple paint is a media star which featured in the Wall Street Journal’s “Purple Lamborghini: A Love Story” in 2018, while in the hands of its second (and current) owners: Steve and Lisa Lefferts.
The SE30 was rolled out in 1993 as a special, limited production Diablo to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Lamborghini. Designed as more of a street-legal racer, the car was lightened and given a power increase to 523BHP with enhanced features such as a tuned fuel system, free-flowing exhaust, and magnesium intake manifolds. Also, special magnesium alloy wheels, SE 30 badging, and the famous metallic purple paint were standard (but could be changed on request) for all of the 150 SE30 models which were produced.
10. 1-of-50 2017 Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Miura Homage: a special edition created by Lamborghini Ad Personam
Price: approx. $427,820
A rare chance to buy a brand-new Aventador Miura. The car was built in 2017, hasn’t been registered, and the warranty period also hasn’t started.
The Aventador LP 700-4 Miura Homage is another anniversary example on our list; it was developed to celebrate 50 years of the iconic Miura, a forerunner of all V12 super sports Lamborghinis. The special edition car was created by the company’s Ad Personam customization division.
9. 2010 Lamborghini Murciélago LP 670-4 Superveloce: a unique example with no rear wing
This Lamborghini Murciélago was delivered in spring 2010 to its first owner–a passionate collector who had enough influence to order and receive a rare and expensive car modification: the rear wing was removed at the factory, which gives the vehicle a unique look. The most striking feature of the modified design is the front and rear sections with new carbon fiber attachments.
The “Superveloce” in the car’s name can be literally translated as “superfast.” This is a limited edition series of only 350 Murciélago examples produced with lightweight bodies and increased power of 670 hp. As a result, the vehicles can reach a maximum speed of 337 kmh and can sprint from 0 to 100 kmh (60 mph) in only 3.2 seconds.
8. 1988 Lamborghini Countach: a Piedmontese term best translated as “Goodness”
There is a legend that a Lamborghini factory worker once saw a car standing in the yard, gasped, and said “Countach!” (a Piedmontese term that can best be translated as “Goodness”). In any case, the Countach shows Lamborghini’s revolutionary mindset and capacity in terms of design and engineering.
A multitude of different Countachs were produced between the initial release in 1974 and the end of production in 1990. But only the Countach LP5000 Quattrovalvole developed between 1985&1988 features the most powerful Lamborghini engine of its time: a 5.2-liter, V12-engine producing 335 kW (455HP) with the help of 6 Weber carburetors.
The company built 544 cars with these modifications, and one of them is the Countach 5000 Quattrovalvole offered for sale. The car also belongs to a short-lived series with air vents in the side skirts in front of the rear wheelhouse which allows better cooling of the rear wheel brakes.
7. 2020 Lamborghini Urus by Mansory: a customized upgrade by a legendary atelier
Price: approx. $585,349
Mansory has added extra athleticism to the already fierce and masculine Lamborghini Urus. “We took the bear and made a beast out of it that will make everyone turn their head,” says Mansory’s official page. One of the key modifications is a complete apron that gives the front of the car a rather aggressive yet futuristic, Transformers-movie-inspired look. Other upgrades include 24-inch Mansory black wheels with yellow brake calipers, a Mansory exhaust system, and an impressive 750 hp under the hood.
6. 1-of-20 2012 Lamborghini Murciélago Versace Editions: supercar-meets-fashion collaboration
Estimated price: $710,839
A rare (and singular occurrence in automotive history) collaboration between a supercar brand and a fashion house resulted in the great success of a 6.5-liter V12 Murcielago with Versace’s meander print on the body.
With only 20 vehicles built, the Lamborghini Muercielago Versace for sale is one of 10 examples with white paint. It was ordered with the Reventon wheel package, 680 hp BF performance upgrades, Valvetronic exhaust, and carbon-fiber aerodynamic package. The car comes with a “price on request” tag but according to the seller, its estimated price is about 590,000 euros.
5. 2021 Lamborghini Aventador Roadster SVJ: a golden chance you won’t want to miss
Price: approx. $759,593
The newest Aventador SVJ to date, this example has everything a car needs to turn heads on streets, including the rare golden color in which the Aventador SVJ Roadster was presented at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. With only 800 examples to be produced, the roadster version is more valuable than a coupe.
In terms of performance, the SVJ (Super Veloce Jota) is a track-focused version of the Aventador SV. The car beat the Porsche 911 GT2 RS on the Nürburgring Nordschleife in July 2018, setting a record lap time of 6:44:97.
4. Lamborghini Reventon, inspired by the fastest airplanes
Estimated price: $1,420,000-2,500,000
The Reventon is a limited-edition Lamborghini developed, in large part, for image purposes; the car with the serial number 00/20 was sent directly to the Lamborghini museum. Technically, the model is almost identical to the Murciélago LP640; but, what is truly exciting and worth seeing is the Reventon’s exterior design inspired by the fastest airplanes.
Each car has the same exterior color, described as “mid opaque grey without the usual shine.” Engineers worked really hard on the lightning; the car has daytime running lamps in the headlamps which stay lit whenever the car is in motion, special heat proof LED lighting at the rear, and rear lights with triple arrow optical effects. The active rear wing and the active air intakes integrated into the car’s shoulders are electronically controlled, deploying automatically only at high speeds to maximize both aerodynamic and cooling efficiency.
The Reventon’s exterior was created as the basis for the company’s current flagship: the Aventador. In 2010, Forbes estimated Reventon sale prices at about $1,420,000; but, in 2020, a Reventon coupe was put up for sale on JamesEdition with a price tag of $2,500,000.
3. 1967 Lamborghini Miura: a concourse winner and potential auction star
Estimated price: $2,000,000+
If you’re thinking about the 1971 Lamborghini Miura sold recently at RM Sotheby’s Paris, take a look at this fantastically green 1967 Miura put up for sale in Atlanta, USA. Even though the American example doesn’t belong to the most desirable P400SV line unveiled in 1971, it’s still a Miura P400 that changed the automotive landscape forever, after being presented at the 1966 Geneva Salon.
The car for sale has only 10,504 km (6,524 mi.) on the odometer, features an original factory color, and the title of the 2019 concourse winner.
2. 1-of-40 2017 Lamborghini Centenario Roadsters
Estimated price: $2,800,000
The Centenario is the newest limited-run Lamborghini dedicated to the 100th birthday of Ferruccio Lamborghini and unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. The price of the featured car is not revealed, but; in 2020, a similar Lamborghini Centenario was listed for $2,800,000.
According to Lamborghini, the Centenario was developed “to express the maximum potential of Lamborghini’s research and development department.” This principle can be spotted in many details such as the car’s infotainment system that records telemetry and driving data or the new design language based on the largest rear diffusers ever to be incorporated into a car.
1. 2014 Lamborghini Veneno Roadster: one of the world’s most expensive production cars
Estimate price: $4,500,000+
The Veneno offered for sale on JamesEdition is a “price on request” car; but, according to Forbes, the car might cost about $4,500,000. And, in 2019, a Veneno was auctioned at Bonham’s for an astonishing 6,768,709 GBP.
The Lamborghini Veneno is a truly rare supercar with a perfect design and excellent performance; it’s essentially a racing prototype built for the road. The vehicle was developed as a tribute to Lamborghini’s 50th anniversary, with only 9 roadsters and 5 coupes rolled out in 2013-2014.
Another interesting fact to consider is that the Veneno roadster for sale has the same iconic Grigio Telesto (medium grey) color as the Car Zero prototype showcased at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
