This pre-production model has an extraordinary history.
The awe-inspiring Lamborghini Muricelago was sold between 2002 and 2010 and was a capable supercar that lived up to the automaker’s rich heritage. Named after a heroic fighting bull, the Murcielago featured a 6.2-liter V12 that made around 580 hp and could sprint to 60 mph in approximately 3.8 seconds. This specific model is referred to as the “Pre Series 6” and was used by Lamborghini for early testing and promotional events.
Most notably, this Murcielago set three World Records while testing at the Nardo Ring in Italy back in February 2002. The supercar set the record for the most distance travelled in one hour by covering a total of 189.7 miles. The second record the supercar set was the fastest road car to travel 62 miles, which this Murcielago did in 18 minutes and 44.9 seconds. Lastly, the “Pre Series 6” set the World Record for the fastest production vehicle to travel 100 miles, with a time of 30 minutes and 9 seconds. This historic Murcielago is expected to sell for between $185,000 and $246,000 and will cross RM Sotheby’s auction block in London on September 7.
