The Most Expensive Lamborghinis You Can Buy

The Pinnacle of Lamborghini Supercars

Most expensive lamborghini

The title of this article is a bit of a tease, as most Lamborghini road cars are already, by definition, some of the most expensive cars you can buy. However, despite the sticker shock many a common driver gets when looking at a Lamborghini, there are a select few out there in the world that think of a brand new Aventador as a bit of a grocery getter, a less expensive way to get around than hopping into their Bugatti or LaFerrari.

For these clients, Lamborghini has always made special editions, limited editions, and even sometimes one-offs if the client is willing to shell out the development cash. This has resulted in some cars that make even those who can afford a “normal” Lamborghini choke a little on their 50-year-old single malt whisky. Some of these cars have been absolutely years ahead of their time, while others have been a bit more extravagant, is the best word.

No matter the taste of each individual client, there are some cold, hard numbers that let us know just how much each of these special, limited, or one-off Lambo cost when they were new. For our list today, we’ve selected the top 6 most expensive production, road legal models, new & used, based on their original sale price. We specify “production” and “road legal,” because some of the Lamborghini concept cars have stratospheric values, such as the Egoista concept recently being valued for museum insurance purposes at $117 million USD.

That said, here is the list of the most expensive Lamborghini you can buy with your money.

Used market price: $1.8 million to $2 million

In the 70s, the Countach LP400 Periscopio became an instant legend, with only 150 gracing the roads. Given its historical importance, its value has skyrocketed over the past decades.

13. Lamborghini Pregunta: $2.1 Million

12. Lamborghini Centenario: $2.2 Million

Sold For: $2.2 Million

Original MSRP: $2.2 million

Used market price: $2.3 million to $2.8 million

A limited series of 40 cars (20 coupes, 20 roadsters), the Centenario was built to celebrate the 100th birthday of company founder Ferruccio Lamborghini. Based on the Aventador SV, it featured a much more sleek, angular body and multiple aerodynamic strakes in the front and side air intakes. It reportedly guaranteed 60% of its downforce from ground effects and shape alone, without needing the active wing to rise from the rear of the car.

As it was based on the SV, it used the same 6.5L mid-mount V12, tuned to produce 755 HP, which at the time was the second most powerful engine ever put into a Lamborghini. The car is the lightest Aventador-based model, at a 3,693 lbs wet, ready-to-drive weight. This is achieved through the extensive use of carbon fiber and carbon composites, as well as exotic materials for suspension components and even wheels.

Of note, there are technically 41 units of the Centenario, as the very first car that came off the production line quite literally drove less than a mile, just enough to drive into the Lamborghini Museum and get parked up for display. It is not counted as a production car, however, as it is meant to serve as both a signpost and a reminder of Ferruccio Lamborghini and, therefore, carries no chassis number.

11. Lamborghini Sesto Elemento: $2.2 Million

Sold For: $2.2 Million

Original MSRP: $1.8 million

Used market price: $2.4 million to $2.6 million

Raw power meets sleek design in the Sesto Elemento. Based on the Gallardo, this model focuses on minimalism and speed, making it one of the most thrilling rides Lamborghini offers.

10. Lamborghini Reventon: $2.5 Million

2007 lamborghini reventon

Sold For: $2.5 Million

Original MSRP: $2.1 million

Used market price: $2.5 million to $2.8 million

As Lamborghini themselves put it, the Reventon was the “first few-off model” of the 21st century. Styled inside and out to resemble the F-117 Nighthawk stealth bomber, the car was the first in company history to take an established high-performance model, namely the Murcielago LP640, and turn every knob, dial, and switch up to 11. There were 20 coupes made and 15 roadsters.

It was also the first Lamborghini to use the then-emerging TFT display technology, which had switchable graphics to either show a standard dash configuration or military-inspired tachometer and speedometer displays resembling weapon displays from the F-117 Nighthawk. While the car used the same frame, drivetrain, and base setup as the Murcielago LP640, the engine has been tuned to deliver 650 HP, and the entire body shell is full of carbon fiber.

Another first for Lamborghini, the Reventon, was the first production model from Sant’Agata Bolognese to feature daytime running lights, a series of 14 LEDs, 7 per headlight, that surround the Xenon projector lens. As well, being the first few-offs, a special production model, 00/20, was built specifically and only for the Lamborghini Museum and still sits there in a place of honor to this day.

9. Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4: $2.6 Million

Sold For: $2.6 Million

Paying homage to the original Countach, this modern iteration fuses old-school charm with new-age technology, sporting a hybrid powertrain and sleek design.

Original MSRP: $2.8 million

A one-of-a-kind supercar, the Aventador J is a testament to Lamborghini’s innovation. A roofless wonder with a 700hp V12, it’s as breathtaking as it is unique.

7. Lamborghini Miura SVJ: $3.6 Million

Https://www. Lambocars. Com/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/miura_svj1. Jpg

Sold For: $3.6 Million

Original MSRP: $21,125

Used market price: $3.8 million to $4 million

One of Lamborghini’s iconic models, the Miura SVJ is rare and highly coveted. Only three of these jewels exist, making them a significant piece of automotive history.

6. Lamborghini Sian: $3.7 Million

2021 lamborghini sian fkp37

Sold For: $3.7 Million

Original MSRP: $3.7 million

Used market price: $3.9 million to $4.1 million

The brand-new Sian FKP37 is one hell of a special car for Lamborghini. It is the company’s first, and quite possibly only, V12-powered hypercar with a 48V hybrid assist that doesn’t use a battery system, instead relying on supercapacitors. It can provide a massive 600A boost directly through a DC motor attached after the transmission to the rear wheels. It gives enormous, on-demand torque and recharges the Lithium-Ion supercapacitor using regenerative braking through the same motor.

The gas part of the engine is a 6.5L mid-mount V12 producing 774 HP, with the hybrid adding another 34 HP for a combined 807 HP. The car is limited to 63 total units and was renamed from the original Sian (“lightning” in Italian) to the Sian FKP 37 to honor Ferdinand Piech, the recently passed VW Group chairman, with his initials and the year he was born in 1937.

This car is a milestone, as it shows the future path that Lamborghini will take with engines and hybrids, as ever stricter emissions regulations have, with the Aventador model line winding down with the Ultimae, killed off the famous Lamborghini V12. The replacement car for the Aventador is speculated to have either a V10 or even a V8, with a hybrid assist, thanks to the Sian proving that it can be done in a way that still honors the raging bull on its nose.

5. Lamborghini SC20: $4.2 Million

2020 lamborghini sc20

Original Sale Price: (estimated) $4.2 Million USD

This one is a bit of a special case, as the Lamborghini SC20 is a production car, with a model run of one, and technically isn’t street legal, but it does meet legality conditions in many EU countries. This one-off was commissioned by the same customer that ordered the Lamborghini SC18 Alston, which was definitely not road legal as it was a race car through and through. Designed with customer input via the Lamborghini Centro Stile’s motorsports department, it is a car of staggering numbers and almost sci-fi levels of engineering.

The car has no windscreen, as the lessons learned from the Huracan EVO GT3 car allowed for a special venting solution through the front of the car to literally push air up and over the cockpit. In a strange and ironic way, it uses wind to create a “windscreen.” It features active aero under the body that was taken from the Essenza SCV12 client race car, and also borrows the stacked air intakes on the side of the roll hoops from that same car.

The color of the car is also very special, as it is named Bianco Fu, specially created for the customer, and is not so much painted on as it is impregnated into the carbon fiber bodywork as they are pressure formed. But the most special thing about this car is that it features a 6.5L mid-mount V12 producing 770 HP, passing through a special Independent Shifting Rod (ISR) seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. If that sounds familiar, that’s because that engine, which was developed for the SC20, is the engine that the Aventador Ultimae uses.

4. Lamborghini Miura P400SV: $4.2 Million

Estimated Price: $4.2 Million

Original MSRP: $20,000

Used Market Range: $4.4 million to $4.6 million

The Miura P400 Spinto Veloce, better known as the Miura P400SV, stood as the pinnacle of Miura evolution between 1971 and 1973. Regarded as the most potent version of this legendary car, it’s no wonder the Miura is often cited among the crests of automotive artistry.

Notably, a 1971 Lamborghini Miura P400SV Speciale fetched a whopping $4.2 million in 2020.

3. Lamborghini Veneno Coupe: $5.3 Million

Sold For: $5.3 Million

Original MSRP: $4 million

Used Market Range: $5.5 million to $6 million

Limited to only four units, the Lamborghini Veneno stands as a testament to the brand’s audacity and capability. Its unique aesthetics match its beastly performance, making it one of the rarest and fastest Lamborghinis ever produced. However, its limited production means most Venenos remain hidden treasures, a far cry from the roar and rush they were built for.

2. Lamborghini SC18 Alston: $7 Million

Sold For: $7 Million

Original MSRP: $7 million

Used Market Price: As the sole piece, it’s beyond estimation. But given its last known value, it’s upwards of $7 million.

A one-of-a-kind marvel, the SC18 Alston was birthed from a customer’s dream to experience the zenith of Lamborghini’s prowess. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Huracán GT3 Evo and Super Trofeo Evo, the SC18 Alston marries power with unprecedented aerodynamic engineering, offering a unique driving experience.

1. Lamborghini Veneno Roadster: $8.3 million

Https://www. Lambocars. Com/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/bonhams_veneno_roadster. Jpg
this and many more photos of lamborghinis are available on www. Lambocars. Com

Original MSRP: $4.5 million

Used Market Range: $8.5 million to $9 million

Sold For: $8.3 Million

It’s a bit surprising that the Veneno Roadster is more expensive than its coupe brother. In terms of actual units produced, there was one prototype car, five coupe models, and nine roadsters. Yet, the Veneno Roadster sold for more new and is still by far the more desirable of the two model types, seeing as Lamborghini keeps the prototype at their headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese.

What makes the Veneno Roadster so special is that it is the car that followed right after the Sesto Elemento. Like that car, it is made almost entirely out of carbon fiber, carbon composite, and some of the carbon plastic that was developed alongside Boeing. It also, at the time, was the most powerful Lamborghini made, with a 6.5L mid-mount V12 that howled out 750 HP and pushed the 3,285 lbs lightweight to 60 MPH well under 3 seconds.

It also features both active and passive aerodynamics, one of the first such cars from Lamborghini to fully explore both top and bottom aerodynamics as a joint system to develop extreme downforce. It has lateral aerodynamics as well with the pronounced front lip canards and the massive air intakes for the engine also directing some air out the rear wheel wells to reduce drag at high speed, the same way Formula 1 cars use barge boards to move air out of the way of their rear tires to ensure the most grip possible.

The Veneno Roadster also recently set a record for a Lamborghini car, when one that was seized by Swiss authorities from a man convicted of major fraud was sold at auction for a princely sum of $8.3 Million USD.
