A rare Lamborghini has emerged at an Indiana estate auction. It is a 40-year-old prototype based on the Lamborghini Miura, designed by visionary Luigi Colani. Currently, the exotic car specimen is in pieces, and on the auction block at eBay Motors with a minimum bid of $74,999, down from $79,000 last October. It looks like a crazy contraption, not quite like a Lamborghini. I am sure this vehicle is not from a fleet of Lamborghini rental cars as it looks like it belongs in the Museum of Modern Art.
While this would not make a suitable edition to our fleet of Lamborghini rentals Miami or exotic car rentals Miami, it may please an avid auto collector and Lamborghini enthusiast to own a rare slice of history.
The Lamborghini Colani is being sold on eBay by Bad Influence Hot Rods (BIHR), an Indiana specialty auto shop. Owner BIHR describes the 1970s Lamborghini as a "lost Luigi Colani Lamborghini Miura Le Mans concept prototype car."
The Lamborghini’s canopy has been broken into several pieces over the past three decades, and BIHR offers to replicate a new one for an additional charge. It still features the Lamborghini Miura original chassis, rear rims and knockoffs. The front suspension remains intact and it steers with a joystick/tiller.
Colani’s website describes this Lamborghini as a “Life-size model of a two-part hybrid car. The engine and camshaft are taken from a Lamborghini Miura, the separate passenger cabin is designed like the cockpit of a glider."
This Lambo has certainly fallen to pieces, but it doesn’t appear that any buyers are falling to pieces over it, as it remains available.
