Mecum calls it ‘the World’s largest collector car auction’, I know it as Kissimmee, taking place from January 6th to 16th at Osceola Heritage Park and the online consignment pages boast over 4,000 listings, not all cars mind you, but I would hazard a guess we’ll be seeing about 3,500 cars crossing the auction block over the next few days, and while there are some amazing highlights to be found, I will focus on the 11 Lamborghini that got listed, nine of them without reserve mind you.
We’ll go down the list chronologically, the oldest Raging Bull first, which in this case is a Countach:
1987 Lamborghini Countach Quattrovalvole
This pearl white 1987 Lamborghini Countach Quattrovalvole comes with US-Spec impact bumpers, both front, and rear, including the rear fascia treatment seen on US cars, complete with the fuel-injected 5.2-Liter V12 engine that has only 2,039 km on the counter, that’s right, this car has an odometer in km, not miles. This Lamborghini Countach is from an era where you only had the option of a 5-speed gearbox, but she does come with air conditioning fitted, according to the Mecum listing this is a one-owner car, so he, or she has garage kept this lady for 35 years, and put just 1,267 miles on her … this is a true garage queen I guess, still looks great in this classic white on white combination, complete with those classic gold-painted wheels.
1988 Lamborghini Countach Quattrovalvole
You are looking at a customized 1988 Lamborghini Countach Quattrovalvole, finished in black on black leather, this Bull left the factory gates back in May 1988, but over the last three decades, she did get some modifications, at first glance you might even be tricked into believing you are looking at a Countach 25th Anniversary, but it is the earlier QV version nonetheless. This black beauty probably came with these side sills from the factory, but the rear bumper is definitely sourced from the 25th Anniversary edition, and while this car does feature the obligatory side marker lights, this is a carburetted QV and not a fuel-injected US-specs version.
Still, the owner apparently didn’t like the original factory setup, so you’ll find dual fuel pumps delivering their octane liquid into the six double-barrel Webers, complete with an adjustable electronic ignition system with twin coil packs, the factory original 12 point distributor will accompany the car to the new owner, and for that more contemporary look you’ll notice the chromed 17-inch wheels under this gloss black bodywork.
2006 Lamborghini Murciélago 6.2
Another black Bull, this time a 2006 Lamborghini Murciélago 6.2, the original Murciélago version, and once again with an all-black interior, this specific 3,500 miles car sits on the later Murciélago Roadster wheels covering green brake calipers, this is an e-Gear version, by the way, perhaps not the most sought-after version, but that will mean the car will not go for an insane amount of money, while you have to admit she does look amazing in her Nero Aldebaran Italian couture dress.
2008 Lamborghini Murcielago LP640
This bright orange car is the more recent 2008 Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 version, with the different front and rear bumper, but also featuring the asymmetric side sills specific for the LP640 variant, the auction listing mentions this car is finished in Arancio Borealis, which sounds odd as that was a Gallardo color, and the Murciélago came in Arancio Atlas, but you never know, it could be a custom order. Anyway, the interior looks absolutely stunning with a combination of Nero Ade and Arancio Leonis, complete with the optional Q-Citura stitching pattern.
Note the chromed wheels on her, this Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 comes from the Jerry Brewis Estate Collection and has an estimated value between $200,000 and $250,000, however, she’s listed for auction with no reserve, so she will sell, no matter what.
2009 Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 Roadster
A Verde Ithaca 2009 Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 Roadster is a rare car, and this bright green beauty also comes from the Jerry Brewis Estate Collection like the orange coupe listed above, but in this case, the estimate is a little higher, between $225,000 and $275,000, this convertible Murciélago added only 3,500 miles since new, and with the gloss black wheels with green trim, the impression this Bull gives es is just amazing.
While the exterior is an attention grabber on its own, the interior is just sublime, finished in a combination of black and green leather, this convertible also comes with the optional Q-Citura stitching, but it features inverted stitching, which means the black leather shows green stitching, while the green leather parts receive bespoke black stitching, now that’s attention to detail, this was a high-spec order for sure back in 2009, this car is also listed with no reserve.
2015 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Roadster
If you like a black and red color combination on a Lamborghini, this 2015 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Roadster finished in Nero Aldebaran is just the one you’ve been looking for, despite being 7 years old by now, this V12 beauty has just done 2,685 miles, and comes with black Dione wheels with red pinstriping over optional, Rosso brake calipers, this is a mean-looking Aventador Roadster for sure, and she even boasts the rather expensive option of clear carbon fiber roof panels.
On the inside, we find the Bicolore Sportivo interior in Nero Ade and what looks like Rosso Alala, the listing just states red, this one hasn’t been ordered with the Q-Citura stitching option that was introduced on the 2013 Aventador LP720-4 50th Anniversary edition, but she’s a stunning car, from the Jerry Brewis Estate collection listed at no reserve, with an estimate between $325,000 and $375,000, for one of 413 units made in 2015.
2017 Lamborghini Aventador Miura Homage
I for one really like this next car, the 2017 Lamborghini Aventador Miura Homage finished in the perfect combination, Rosso Arancio over a Terra Semele interior, a perfect homage to the legendary Miura from the Sixties. This is another Lamborghini from the Jerry Brewis Estate collection that’s being listed for auction with no reserve, being a very limited production model, this one comes with an estimate between $325,000 and $375,000, and personally, I think this one is the most sought-after LP700-4 version, period.
Only 50 units of the Lamborghini Aventador Miura Homage have been made for the entire world, and they came in different colors, some even with silver wheels and lower sills, just how many were finished in this perfect Miura shade isn’t listed, but it can’t be a large number, my guess would be around 10 or so, making this a truly rare and exclusive car, and a future classic for sure.
2017 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Roadster
And yet another one from the Jerry Brewis Estate Collection, a grey metallic 2017 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Roadster, this one is finished in Grigio Adamas, a beautiful satin frost look, but this V12 was ordered with a very contrasting, all orange interior, even the brake calipers behind the silver Dione wheels were ordered in orange, naturally, the seats, door panels, and the bulkhead behind the seats feature the amazing Q-Citura stitching, in black to make sure you notice it on the bright orange leather.
This car is also listed at no reserve but comes with an impressive estimate between $350,000 and $400,000, and keep in mind Lamborghini made only 278 Aventador Roadster in 2017, and this specific car did only 161 miles since 2017, this is still a brand new car, a 5-year old time capsule almost.
It seems the Jerry Brewis Estate Collection contained a lot of cars, as this 2018 Lamborghini Huracan LP580-2S Spyder is another one listed for auction with no reserve at Kissimmee, estimated between $200,000 and $250,000, this Grigio Lynx convertible looks amazing on her black wheels and red calipers, a shade that returns in her Bicolore Sportivo Alcantara interior combining Nero Ade and Rosso Alala, naturally with contrast stitching.
Keep in mind this is the LP580 version, so with rear-wheel drive only and a slightly different front bumper, while the rear section below the taillights is also modified from the LP610-4 model, also note this specific unit comes with a third-party rear wing fitted, personally, I’m not a big fan of putting a rear wing on a Spyder, but that’s just me.
2019 Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder
This next V10 convertible is something a little more special, it’s the 2019 Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder, the Superleggera convertible version in the Huracan line, listed at no reserve being estimated between $250,000 and $300,000, but that kind of money will get you a rare Grigio Telesto ultra-performant V10 with the option of driving topless, this lady comes with only 196 miles, she’s hardly broken in.
This car comes with a Nero Cosmus Alcantara upholstery complete with the laser engraving on the seats and door panels that was introduced on the Performante, even the floor mats get this amazing treatment that shows the red underlying color through, do note this car was ordered through the Ad Personam studio and comes with comfort seats instead of the hard carbon fiber lightweight sport seats, this Huracan was part of the Jackie & Gary Runyon Collection.
2020 Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Evo
Now, this is an amazing opportunity to obtain a real Lamborghini racecar, a 2020 Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Evo more specifically, another car from the Jackie & Gary Runyon Collection listed at no reserve, but comes with a hefty estimate between $300,000 and $350,000 … for a car that is not street-legal mind you, this isn’t a Huracan STO, this is a real Super Trofeo track-only V10 beauty.
This is the real deal, with bespoke aerodynamics designed by Dallara Engineering together with Lamborghini Centro Stile, complete with OMP racing additions, and while these racecars are built on the same assembly line as the street-legal Huracan EVO and Huracan STO, this is a totally different beast altogether, but it must be fun having one of these in your garage and wake up the neighborhood on Sunday morning.
So there you have it, a total of 11 very interesting Lamborghini models, ranging from the by now classic Countach, over the Murciélago to some amazing Aventador models, only to end with a few V10 powered Bulls, if you are interested in placing a bid on any of these cars, make sure to register or visit the Mecum Kissimmee auction and join the fun.
