Sant’Agata is rumoured to be preparing 1mil Euro surprise for Frankfurt

Lamborghini is hotly tipped to wow the Frankfurt motor show with a new supercar that will become its most expensive model ever.Based on the range-topping LP640, the new model is rumoured to feature a radically different body, an overhauled engine and a new interior, and to be built in a limited run of just 20 cars.Super-rich collectors on the US west coast are understood to have been shown the car recently as a sales exercise ahead of the Frankfurt show.Together with the unique body panels, the new Lambo is also said to feature a new paint job and new interior trim.With these significant structural changes, the special edition will be a step up from the recent LP640 Versace, which was limited to 20 cars with 19 delivered to customers and one reserved for the factory museum.The Versace fetched a £55k premium over a ‘standard’ £225k LP640, but the new model is tipped to reach even further into the collector stratosphere with a price tag rumoured at a million Euros — that’s around £700k.At that price, it would cost double a Mercedes SLR 722 McLaren, and be three times the price of a Rolls-Royce Phantom. It’ll have to be special, then; stay tuned for more info from Frankfurt show press day on September 11.
