When the Lamborghini Veneno was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show, there were those who connected dots from it to the Lamborghini Pregunta concept from 1998, and also to the Pagani Zonda that arrived one year later.
Near the end of the turmoil that was Lamborghini’s ownership through the mid-nineties, an order was placed with the French Carrosserie Heuliez for a one-off concept car that was “new, original and impossible to confuse with any other car’s shapes,” that would be built on a Diablo chassis. The result was the Pregunta.
It was an aerospace-influenced supercar with carbon fiber bodywork, a 530-horsepower V12 and a claimed 207-mile-per-hour top speed. It employed rear-wheel drive instead of the Diablo’s all-wheel drive, was coated in the same paint used on the French military’s Dassault Rafale fighter jet and had fiber optic lighting, rear-view cameras and a GPS system. It was shown to the world at the 1998 Paris Motor Show, and again at the 1999 Geneva Motor Show.
Thought to be the last concept built on a Lamborghini body before Audi bought the company in 1998, AutoDrome, a French specialist in vintage exotics, has the Pregunta for sale for 1.6 million euros ($2.1M US). You can watch it hit the runway with a Rafale in the video below, then give AutoDrome a call if you’re interested.
There is no shortage of multi-million dollar supercars right now, but if none of the available models – Bugattis, Paganis, Aston One-77, etc. – float your boat and you want something a bit more unique, a car dealer in France has just the thing for you. This is the one-off Lamborghini Pregunta concept car, yours for €1.5 million ($2.1 million).
The 1998 concept is designed by Marc Deschamp’s studio and created by Carrosserie Heuliez. It is built on a Lamborghini Diablo chassis and uses the same underpinnings, including a 5.7 liter V12 with 530HP (390 kW) and 580Nm (428 lb-ft) of torque. The car’s four-wheel-drive and capable of reaching a top speed of 330 km/h.
Being a concept, the Pregunta features some interesting details such as a removable top, F1-style instrument panel, fiber optic lighting system, rear-view cameras instead of mirrors, and a unique Dassault stealthy paint job.
