Lamborghini Pregunta Concept Could be Yours for $2.1 Million

If you're looking to buy a hugely-expensive supercar or hypercar, you are willing to spend six-digit figures to achieve your dreams, then perhaps you should take your eyes off thePaganisKoenigseggs and Bugattis of the world, and take a look at this Lamborghini Pregunta (Spanish for "question") concept from 1998.
As you would imagine, only one was ever built, but more importantly, it represents the final car made by Lamborghini, before going under Audi control.
It was shown at the 1998 Paris motor show, and the 1999 Geneva Motor show, where it reportedly drew a really big crowd. The car appears to have been inspired by 1960s jet fighters, and if I look at it for long enough, I start seeing a Harrier jump jet. That is probably also due to the fact that its coach-built body is coated in a special Dassault stealth paint, which is also used on the Dassault Rafale jet fighter.
There's more. It has dynamic air intakes, a digital gauge cluster, rear-view camera, GPS and "combat jet-derived cockpit ergonomics." The car was loosely based on the Diablo, which was the contemporary high-end Lambo at the time, but it is lighter and simpler in its construction, giving up the use of all-wheel drive, so that its 530 hp V12 engine could push it to its top speed of 333 km/h (202 mph) – the Pregunta is not just a show car, and it is fully-functional and considerably quicker than the Diablo of the time.
The car is being advertised for sale on, where the roadster (hardtop comes out) is priced at €1.6 ($2.1) million. Keep in mind that this is the 1998 equivalent of therecently-unveiled Veneno, so the price is justified for the kind of car this is, and its rarity.
