One-off 2006 Lamborghini Concept S is up for grabs at RM Sotheby’s auction

Everybody gets animated when they hear that a second-hand Lamborghini or a Ferrari will be auctioned. But what makes people even more excited is when the car is a limited edition, or better yet, a one-off production ready concept car. In this case, a 2006 Lamborghini Concept S. A lot of you might think that you have seen this car somewhere, and that is because it is a roofless Gallardo. No, it is not a Spyder if that is what you are thinking, because Spyders have a retractable roof and a windshield.

We first witnessed the 2006 Lamborghini Concept S back in 2005 as a design study. This was done to pay homage to the vintage single-seat, open cockpit race cars during the time Lamborghini was better known for its tractors. But unlike others that had individual cockpits for the driver and the passenger, the Concept S added an extra air inlet for the V10 engine. Both the front and the rear had aerodynamic tweaks that would give the car better downforce.

Initially, it did not matter since the concept did not have an engine, but then Lamborghini built an actual example with an engine. One hundred examples of the Concept S were supposed to be build, and these were supposed to be offered to loyal Lamborghini customers. However, when production finally began, they realized that the cost and time were much more than they have expected, so after the first car was completed, production had been cancelled, making this 2006 model the one and only example.

Lamborghini has unveiled the 2013 Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo at the Blancpain Super Trofeo race series at the Navarra circuit. Just last month, the facelifted Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 and LP 570-4 Edizione Tecnica models debuted at the Paris Motor Show. But apparently, the Super Trofeo version is even more special.

Lamborghini also claims that it got a 120% boost in aerodynamics when compared to its predecessor. To accomplish this, Lamborghini had to rework the body and gave it some adjustable aerodynamic devices, which include a 10-position rear wing.

There’s an improvement in its brake cooling due to its revised brake ducts, leading to a 50% boost. Even if major upgrades were given to the supercar, it isn’t drastically different from its predecessor. It uses the same chassis and is powered by the same 562-hp V-10 engine.

The updated Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder will start arriving in showrooms from late November, soon after the Coupé is released. Its aesthetic modifications are similar to those seen on the Gallardo LP 560-4 Coupé at the recently held Paris Motor Show. The appearance of the Gallardo Spyder is somewhat more angular and more aggressive owing to several sharp, triangular shapes in the front bumper.

This design is more overtly expressed at the rear. The other revisions include big air intakes ahead of the front wheels. Its standard-fit alloys also have a new design.

The 19-inch ‘Apollo’ wheels are available in black and polished metal finishes. Just like the Coupé, customers can order the Spyder along with a Style Package.

Few days ago we told you that the Lamborghini Gallardo successor will be less complicated than the current model but in the meantime we found out something more interesting. Lamborghini is going to launch one more special edition model so if you want to be sure you will have a special Gallardo you should check your bank account.

Although there are no details regarding the new edition, Car and Driver says that the new version might not receive just a new paint job, it should be a special model. Lamborghini launched several special editions of the Gallardo, such as the LP570-4 Blancpain, LP550-2 Hong Kong 20th Anniversary, Singapore Limited, LP560-4 Bicolore, LP570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale, LP550-2 Valentino Balboni or the LP570-4 Spyder Performante.

The passion that is present in every Lamborghini is owed to three factors which are performance, extemporaneous action, and precision. However, its greatest strength will always be its elegance. A good way then to describe a Lamborghini is that it is a highly efficient athlete and will always be considered as such. Not surprising given that the development of the brand’s design language never stops. This is seen with every new model that the Centro Stile releases. Take for example the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4. The design utilizes a minimalist motif but makes it unique through the clean surfaces and the precise lines.

The Lamborghini Gallardo’s successor will have its launch in 2014 but then it will be offered with a more simplified list of variations. It’s notable that the Gallardo comes in numerous model iterations. Lamborghini America COO Michael Lock said that the range of the Gallardo’s successor will be more streamlined, not only because of financial purposes but mostly to make it simple for the customer.

Rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive options will be available to go along with the coupe and convertible variants. Furthermore, customers can choose a lighter-weight model but not necessarily in a specific configuration.

For instance, it’s likely that there won’t be an all-wheel drive, lighter-weight convertible. Lamborghini also clarified that the Gallardo successor won’t be available with a manual transmission option. Sales of the manual-equipped Gallardos have been low. This is why the successor will only be featured with a dual-clutch gearbox.

The racing package for the Lamborghini Gallardo LP600+ GT3 for 2012 was unveiled by Reiter Engineering a year after the announcement was made. Hans Reiter said that the race cars for 2012 will have significant changes, including a focus on endurance racing since it’s the next development step. Hans Reiter said that the Gallardo has proven itself as “a safe and fast car in sprint format races.”

Hans Reiter said that they aim to be successful at long distance races as well. To accomplish this, they plan to build a “reliable 24-hour race car” that’s capable of winning. Among its upgrades is a new 2012 Holinger gearbox that’s lighter and composed of fewer parts than the previous version. Its shifting has become more accurate and direct. Its highlights include a larger splitter and double dive plates on the front bumper corners to have added downforce.

Reiter is currently working to re-calibrate the suspension to offer more mechanical grip but lessen tire scrub so that there’s an improvement in balance and longevity as the race nears the end. In long distance races, the brake performance is improved with the use of an AP Racing brake system with new six-piston calipers and reworked brake cooling for the front.

After the Aventador, it appears that Lamborghini’s next model will be the Gallardo 550-2 Spyder. The Italian manufacturer confirmed that it will produce the new convertible but didn’t want to give us any details, they just said that the new model will offer a "more emotional and gratifying drive". The Lamborghini Gallardo 550-2 Spyder will hit the market in 2012. Although it wasn’t confirmed, the 2012 Geneva Motor Show seems to be the perfect place for the car’s debut.

The new 2012 Lamborghini Gallardo 550-2 Spyder will be the convertible version of the limited edition Gallardo LP 550-2 Valentino Balboni. This model was a tribute to Lamborghini’s remarkable test driver, who helped the firm build automotive legends, from the Lamborghini Miura of the 60s through to the current Gallardo and Murciélago models. Balboni was hired in 1967 by company founder Ferruccio Lamborghini himself.

As expected, the vehicle featured the impressive 5.2-liter V10 engine delivering 550 hp, delivered to the rear wheels. The Gallardo LP 550-2 Valentino Balboni was capable to hit 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 3.9 seconds, while the top speed was limited to 199 mph (almost 320 km/h). We expect the Gallardo 550-2 Spyder deliver the same performances.
