1998 Lamborghini Pregunta Concept


The One-And-Only Lamborghini Pregunta Can Be Yours For $2 Million


In 1998, Lamborghini went under full ownership of Audi and the last vehicle to be developed by Lamborghini as an independent company was the Pregunta - a concept car designed in cooperation with the Italian Studio Heuliez-Torino. While all the other models in Lamborghini’s lineup were named after famous bulls, the "Pregunta" got a simpler name: "pregunta" is the Spanish word for "question."
With the Pregunta, Lamborghini wanted to develop a vehicle that was "new, original and impossible to confuse with any other." The concept was unveiled in 1998 at the Paris Auto Show and shown again at the 1999 at the Geneva Motor Show.
Pregunta was limited to only one unit and you can imagine that the chance to actually drive one is pretty rare. Now, the concept has been put on sale by British web site classicdriver.comand can be yours for €1.6 million (about $2.1 million at the current exchange rate).

The Pregunta is based on the Diablo chassis and is powered by a V-12 engine that delivers a total of 530 horsepower. The concept is claimed to hit a top speed of 333 km/h (206 mph), making the Pregunta faster than its Diablo donor, which can hit a top speed of 200 mph.
Also, when compared to the Diablo, the Pregunta features a lighter and more straightforward rear-wheel-drive structure, and the radiators have been moved to the front. The concept also uses technologies seen on Formula 1 cars, including: Dassault stealth external paintwork (from the Dassault Rafale jet fighter), dynamic air intakes, fully electronic F-1 type Marelli instruments, internal optical-fiber lighting (DGA), rearview camera and CDI Cristine GPS system.
