The Lamborghini V12 Pregunta Roadster was the last model produced before the brand was taken over by Audi. Some consider the Pregunta to be the last ‘true’ Lamborghini, though the introduction of the Lamborghini Veneno at this year’s Geneva Motor Show could certainly be an argument for that view.
The Lamborghini Pregunta is a very special one-off supercar commissioned specifically for a client craving a Lamborghini that held a Diablo chassis and would be impossible to confuse with the shape of any existing vehicle. The result was an aerospace-influenced hypercar boasting carbon fiber bodywork before it became common. It even has the same paint used on French fighter jets and fiber optic lighting cues. High-tech rear-view cameras replace the need for mirrors and it packs a GPS system, both of which were far from commonplace in 1998.
The one-off Lamborghini V12 Pregunta roadster at a glance:
- Powered by a 5.7-liter V12 kicking out 530 horsepower
- 428 lb-ft of torque
- AWD system
- Top speed of 207 miles per hour
- F1 style electronic instruments
- Four-point Schrott harness and Dassault stealth external paint
The Lamborghini Pregunta is the only one of its kind and was put up for sale at Paris Autodrome, an exotic car dealer, months ago. It is unknown if the car remains available, and the asking price was a staggering $2.1 million USD. The Pregunta was designed by Italian studio Heuliez-Torino Pregunta, which explains the rather unique name.
The Lamborghini Pregunta has been seen at the 1998 Paris Motor Show and the 1999 Geneva Motor Show
If you can dismiss the aged music and font, this video is actually very cool. It shows the Lamborghini Pregunta hitting the runway alongside a Dassault Rafale fighter jet. The jet gets airborn and lands again next to the Lambo.
