The 2006 Lamborghini Strategy S previously offered at RM Sotheby’s 2017 Monterey Car Week auction is heading up for sale but all over again at the auction house’s once-a-year Abu Dhabi party later on this thirty day period.
Lamborghini’s Strategy S was the design and style brainchild of previous Bentley, Lamborghini and Audi design and style director Luc Donckerwolke. Prior to departing to function for Hyundai luxurious subsidiary Genesis,਍onckerwolke penned this sawed-off Gallardo roadster. A whole 100 illustrations have been to be created, but that hardly ever arrived to move.
The standout design and style component of the Strategy S is the򠮬kbone managing down the center, splitting the cabin in two and terminating at the air inlet for the mid-mounted,򠔐-horsepower five.two-liter V-10 that commonly arrived in the Gallardo. Unfortunately, the Strategy S was developed with the E-Equipment one-clutch automated transmission, fairly than the gated six-velocity handbook also available in the Gallardo.
The auction property expects the Strategy S to carry in involving $one.three million and $one.six million when it crosses the block at the Abu Dhabi auction on Nov. 30.
1996 Zagato Raptor Strategy
The Strategy S is not the only managing Lamborghini principle that will be on provide in Abu Dhabi. The Diablo VT-based 1996 Zagato Raptor concept car will also be crossing the block. This a single-off weighed some 650 lbs significantly less than the car or truck on which it was centered. The Zagato Raptor preserves the managing equipment of the Diablo VT, which alone was very exclusive.
The Diablo VT applied an early implementation of Lamborghini’s all-wheel-travel process, which was mainly lifted from the LM002 SUV. It was also the beneficiary of four-piston brake calipers, electronically managed dampers, and ability steering𠅎xtravagant package for a Lamborghini of the time, and not uncovered on lesser types right until later on in the Diablo’s operate.
Underneath the lid, it has the exact same five.seven-liter V-12 uncovered in the Diablo VT on which it was centered, in which it produced just about 500 horsepower. It also features a superior, aged-fashioned handbook gearbox. RM Sotheby’s claims the Raptor need to fetch north of $one million.
