Lamborghini Pregunta prototype on sale for $2.1M


 The Lamborghini Pregunta, which made its debut at the 1998 Paris Auto Show, is now up for sale for 1.6 million euros, or $2.1 million. It was acquired by Autodrome, a French seller of rare and classic cars, who retrieved the Pregunta from the Italian branch of the French specialist of prototype cars, Carrosserie Hueliez. The Pregunta was the result of an order placed back in the 90′s with Hueliez for an one-off concept car that was based off a Diablo development car donated by Lamborghini.

The order asked for a car that was “new, original, and impossible to confuse with any other car’s shapes.” The car concept was the “last and ultimate special coachwork ever built on a Lamborghini base”, before the company was taken over by Audi. Lamborghini was going through a tough transitional phase during this period. Back in 1994, it was sold by Chrysler to the Megatech Group, and then purchased by Tommy Suharto, son of the former Indonesian president, before finally ending up in the hands of Audi.

LG plans to launch a flexible OLED smartphone before the end of the year, the company’s VP of mobile has confirmed, though it’s unclear to what extent the work-in-progress handset will actually flex. The OLED panel in question is the handiwork of LG Display according to VP of LG mobile Yoon Bu-hyun, the WSJ  reports, with the proposed device set to launch sometime in Q4.
