This is the only street-legal Lamborghini Concept S (photos)

RM Auctions prepared a real treat for its upcoming auction at Monterey, in the name of the 2006 Lamborghini Concept S, the insane street-legal supercar that never was. Talk about a rare opportunity! Coming under a hammer near you for an estimated $1,800,000 – $2,500,000.

While it might look like something straight out of Italdesign’s book, the Concept S was designed by Belgian Luc Donckerwolke, the current Head of Design at Hyundai’s luxury brand Genesis. Lamborghini presented the car as a non-running design study at the 2005 Geneva Motor Show, and after getting tons of praise from the audience, went on to build a working prototype slated for series production.

While it might look like something straight out of Italdesign’s book, the Concept S was designed by Belgian Luc Donckerwolke, the current Head of Design at Hyundai’s luxury brand Genesis. Lamborghini presented the car as a non-running design study at the 2005 Geneva Motor Show, and after getting tons of praise from the audience, went on to build a working prototype slated for series production.

This extreme open-top Gallardo features a 520 horsepower V10 that still rocks with just 180 miles in the clock, and the automated-manual 6-speed known as E-Gear which was far from the best gearbox on the market and likely feels even older now.

After changing their minds on series production, Lamborghini decided to produce a limited run of 100 examples for its most favored customers. However, realizing that the project was just not viable, Lamborghini canned the whole idea, making this white car a one-off in the process. After relocating the design study to the Lamborghini museum in Sant’Agata Bolognese, the prototype was sold off to private hands.

Now, it can be in your private hands with just 180 miles on it, most of which came from initial testing and driving around concours show fields. That’s right! It’s a $2 million Gallardo.
