20. Lamborghini Urus – $229,000
Lamborghini Urus is a modern and unusual addition to the Lamborghini family, one driven by the recent trend of luxe SUVs. The Urus managed to shame its competition with a gorgeous design and some of the best performances on the SUV market.
Powered by a 4.0 liter V8 engine, it can do the 0 to 60 mph run in just 3.5 seconds. That makes it fast, but not the fastest, though it shines when it comes to its deluxe interior and the exterior design that screams Lamborghini with each line of the chassis.
This beauty sells for $229,000, making it the cheapest entry on our list.
19. Lamborghini Murcielago – $362,000
The Lamborghini Murcielago is famous for its scissor doors, superb design, and its powerful engine, able to push it from 0 to 60 in 3.4 seconds, which is a feat even today, after more than 20 years from when its wheels first touched the asphalt.
The cost of a Murcielago rises to $362,000.
18. Lamborghini Murcielago Versace Edition – $710,839
The result of a unique collaboration between Lamborghini and the legendary fashion house Versace, the Murcielago Versace Edition was a 20 unit limited edition that featured a white painted body and Versace’s meander print on top.
The car was a success, with one of them selling for $710,839, which is quite a huge difference for what’s merely a different paint scheme and some performance upgrades on the standard Murcielago.
17. Lamborghini Aventador Roadster SVJ – $759,593
The Lamborghini Aventador Roadster SVJ (Super Veloce Jota) is a rare sight in the automotive world. The SVJ Roadster variant of the Aventador came out in 2019, as a limited production run of only 800 units.
Besides the impressive road manners and raw power, the Aventador SVJ Roadster comes with a rare golden color that turns heads everywhere it goes.
The price of such a marvel of the automotive world rises to $759,593.
16. Lamborghini Diablo – $1 million
The Lamborghini Diablo is another legend of times past, one of the most prized cars the company ever made. It became their flagship car when it first hit the road in 1990, and saw an instant rise in popularity among automotive fans from all over the world, quickly becoming one of the most popular cars of all time.
The Diablo was on top of the market up until 2001, when Murcielago came out. Even today, it garners a lot of attention and praise, and a whooping price tag. Back in 2018, a well taken care of Lamborghini Diablo, with little mileage, was sold for $1 million.
15. Lamborghini Mansory Carbonado Apertos – $1.6 million
The German luxury car brand Mansory took a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster and transformed it into the Mansory Carbonado Apertos. The transformation came with a twin turbo upgrade for the engine, pushing the 6.5 liter V12 to a jaw dropping 1,250 horsepower and 900 pound-feet of torque.
Besides that, the body received an upgrade as well, in the form of matte carbon fiber, which makes it look more stealth fighter jet than supercar. The interior wasn’t spared, and was upgraded with black and yellow leather and detailed stitching.
The Carbonado Apertos can now sprint from 0 to 60 mph in only 2.8 seconds, and reach a top speed of 236 mph. But what’s even more impressive is the price one of the three ever made was sold for, $1.6 million.
14. Lamborghini Mansory Carbonado GT – $2 million
There’s an even better Mansory Carbonado, the GT variant, one which sold for a cool $2 million.
What those money bought is an upgraded twin turbocharged 6.5 liter V12 able to unleash an incredible 1,600 horsepower on the road. The interior received premium leather upholstery in two tones, carbon fiber trim, and contrast stitching, to match the sportiness of the car.
The exterior saw ultralight forged rims and carbon fiber inlays, modified bumpers, extended fenders, and upgraded side skirts.
And if that’s not worth those $2 million, we don’t know what is.
13. Lamborghini Pregunta – $2.1 million
Unveiled back in 1998 at the Paris Motor Show, the Lamborghini Pregunta concept car, based on the older Diablo, using the same rear wheel drive and the 530 hp 5.7 liter V12 engine. It draws inspiration from the aerospace industry, was made mostly from carbon fiber, and instead of the usual mirrors, it has cameras. The interior is lighted with optical fiber only.
When it comes to performance, it’s able to do the 0 to 62 mph run in 3.9 seconds, and has a top speed of 207 mph.
This prototype was the last car produced by Lamborghini before being acquired by the Volkswagen group. It never went into production, but sold for a good $2.1 million in 2013.
12. Lamborghini Reventon Roadster – $2.2 million
Featuring a state of the art fighter jet inspired aesthetic, the Lamborghini Reventon Roadster is one of the rarest cars that came out from the Lamborghini factories, but one of their most impressive as well.
Only a total of 21 were produced, one of them specifically to be displayed in the company’s museum.
The car was first seen at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2009, and impressed the audience with its astonishing appearance, especially inside. The interior continues the stealth fighter jet theme, with multimode LCD screens in aluminum and carbon fiber cases, G-force meter, plus posh leather upholstery and contrast stitching.
All cars were sold, and the price was $2.2 million.
11. Lamborghini Countach – $2.6 million
Born in 1974, the Lamborghini Countach was an instant hit. Incredibly beautiful, and with a novel, never before seen aesthetic for those times, the Countach became many people’s favorite car. Few could afford it, while most would just put up posters of it on their walls at home and their offices.
While the initial model was produced between 1974 and 1990, the Countach was resurrected by Lamborghini this year. So, 2022 saw a limited edition of the legendary Countach, one that could go from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.8 seconds, equipped with a V12 that generates 802 horsepower.
The price tag for this resurrected icon rises to $2.6 million. And all of them have already been reserved.
10. Lamborghini Sesto Elemento – $2.8 million
Named after… carbon, the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento (Italian for sixth element, which in the periodic table is carbon) features a full carbon fiber construction, which brings its weight down to an incredible 2,200 pounds, or 998 kg, just short of a ton.
Now pair that with a 570 horsepower V10 engine, and you’ll get a 0 to 62 mph run in 2.5 seconds, and a 185 mph top speed.
The limited edition track only car was sold faster than anyone could have dreamed, and the price of $2.8 million didn’t seem too much for the car’s new owners.
9. Lamborghini Aventador J – $2.8 million
The Lamborghini Aventador J might be just a concept car, but that didn’t stop Lamborghini to sell it to a private buyer for $2.8 million before even being revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in 2012.
The Aventador J isn’t your typical car, as it comes without all the creature comforts we’ve been used with. There’s no windshield, no roof, no windows, no air conditioning and radio, and nothing to care about but its sheer power and the fun driving it.
It’s equipped with a 6.5 liter V12 engine capable of 700 horsepower, which is delivered to the 20″ and 21″ wheels through a single-clutch transmission.
8. Lamborghini Centenario – $2.9 million
Another limited edition Lamborghini, the Centenario was revealed in 2016 at the Geneva Motor Show. It boasts a 6.5 liter V12, is able to run the 0 to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds, and it’s an extremely beautiful and unique creation.
Lamborghini wanted to honor the company founder’s 100th birthday, so they created the Centenario, hence the car’s name. It was sold for $2.9 million.
7. Lamborghini Miura – $2.9 million
The Lamborghini Miura Concept car was unveiled in 2006, to honor the 40th anniversary from the introduction of the original Lamborghini Miura back in 1966. The modern iteration of the Miura brings an advanced all wheel drive system, wider body, lower side intakes, rising rear spoiler, and brushed aluminum louvers.
The original variant of the Miura was the fastest street legal car in production when it came out in 1966, as a response to Ferrari’s 250 GTO. There were only 150 models ever produced.
While the concept car is kept in the Lamborghini museum in Sant’Agata Bolognese, in Italy, a used Lamborghini Miura in excellent condition sold for $2.9 million in 2021.
6. Lamborghini Egoista – $3 million
The Lamborghini Egoista is a concept car based on the Gallardo, which features a unique one seat cockpit that resembles that of a fighter jet. The body and wheels were made from radar absorbing material like the one used on stealth fighters. The car was revealed for the company’s 50th anniversary, and the name ‘Egoista’ signifies hedonism take to the extreme.
The Egoista has a removable canopy door. Also removable is the steering wheel, similar to Formula 1 cars, in which, to get in or out, you need to remove the steering wheel.
The car is powered by a 5.2 liter V10 engine, which outputs 600 horsepower. The price tag is $3 million.
5. Lamborghini Sian – $3.6 million
Though less popular than other models in this list, the Lamborghini Sian is the first hybrid sports car made by the Italian super car manufacturer. It took the automotive world by storm, and the industry immediately started talking about it.
The name literally means ‘flash of lighting’, and seems fit enough given the hybrid nature of the car, which features an electric motor and supercapacitor instead of using a standard lithium-ion battery. The reason is that supercapacitors provide three times as much power than a lithium-ion battery of the same weight.
The exterior of the Sian looks absolutely gorgeous, and it’s part of what sets the price for this beauty at $3.6 million.
4. Lamborghini Veneno Coupe – $5.3 million
The Veneno is another one of Lamborghini’s celebrations honoring its 50th anniversary, unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. Based on the Aventador, the ravishing Veneno comes with a 6.5 liter V12 engine, with a 740 horsepower output, able to rocket from 0 to 60 mph in only 2.8 seconds, and reaching a top speed of 221 mph.
The Lamborghini Veneno was priced initially at $4 million, but it was purchased in the end for $5.3 million, making it one of the most expensive Lamborghinis ever sold.
3. Lamborghini SC18 Alston – $7 million
A unique creation, even for Lamborghini, the SC18 Alston is a track only racecar that came in a limited edition of just… one unit. That’s right, the SC18 Alston was a custom made car for a Lamborghini customer, who paid $7 million for it.
The Alston is based on the Huracan GT3 Evo and the Super Trofeo Evo, and boasts impressive aerodynamics, on top of the powerful 6.5 liter V12 engine.
2. Gold Lamborghini Aventador LP 1:8 – $7.5 million
The Aventador was a very successful series for Lamborghini, and the Aventador LP took things to a new level, with the same high performance 6.5 liter V12 engine and a more extreme look. But here we have a version of that supercar that’s even more special.
Albeit this is not a real car, but it’s a spectacular 1:8 scale model of the Lamborghini Aventador LP that was carved out of solid gold and sold at an auction for a whopping $7.5 million in 2021.
1. Lamborghini Veneno Roadster – $8.3 million
The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster was the most expensive Lamborghini ever sold by the company from the get go. It’s starting price was ‘only’ $4.5 million.
But there’s one specific Veneno Roadster that broke all the records and was sold for an almost double price of $8.3 million. And that’s probably only the beginning, because there are only 9 Lamborghini Veneno Roadsters in the entire world.
The car has the same 6.5 liter V12, mid mounted, generating 750 horsepower, able to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds, and looking outrageously good.
There you go, these are the most expensive Lamborghinis ever sold. Some are simply unique, while others have gained a lot in value over time, especially if they were kept in perfect condition.
One thing is certain: a Lamborghini isn’t your average car, and doesn’t follow the same price trends that are governing the used car market worldwide. And if we’re going to believe our hunch, Lamborghini prices will continue to go up even more.
