Later today, I’m going to show you an exciting new Lamborghini — but right now, I’m going to show you some exciting used ones. Specifically, here are five of the cheapest used Lamborghini models currently listed for sale on Autotrader in varying arrays of "cheap." And while nothing on this list is as affordable as, say, a Toyota Camry, some of these cars are selling for fractions of their original prices — though I strongly caution you to remember that "cheap selling price" and "cheap ownership costs" can be two very different things.
Although classic Lamborghini models languished with relatively cheap values for a long time, they’re starting to get pricey — as this search shows. The cheapest Lamborghini from the pre-Audi-owned era, which started in the late 1990s, is this early Diablo — which is listed for $169,900. I remember when these used to cost half that, though I still think this is a good deal for an iconic design. Oddly, this particular example has been modified to accommodate extra tall drivers, so it’s something of an oddity. It’s offered by Bobileff Motor Company in San Diego with 13,670 miles.
If you’re looking for the cheapest droptop Lamborghini you can find, well, you’ve found it. It’s this 2008 Gallardo Spyder, and it’s finished in white with a black interior. It has a clean Carfax report indicating no accidents, but it’s been driven a lot, having racked up more than 30,000 miles since it was sold new in Beverly Hills in 2007. No, 30,000 miles isn’t a lot for most 10-year-old cars, but it’s big mileage for a Lambo — and it probably explains the relatively low price. This one is offered by Metrolina Auto Group in Charlotte for $94,456.
No Huracan is cheap, but this one is the cheapest. It’s a 2016 model with 2-wheel drive, rather than AWD like many Huracan models, and it’s offered by Lamborghini Houston for "just" $177,984. This car doesn’t have any clear flaws, but it does have significant miles, as it’s already covered 20,025 miles from new — meaning someone likely drove it daily since purchasing it. Still, if this has a clean bill of mechanical health, someone will end up with a great deal on a sought-after new Lamborghini model.
The cheapest Gallardo on Autotrader is also the cheapest overall Lamborghini. Finished in black but currently covered in a sparkling gold and silver wrap, this Gallardo is offered by a private seller in Las Vegas for just $70,000 — a great deal for the model. The pricing is likely low due to the mileage, which stands at 47,500 — a big figure for a Lamborghini from this era. Indeed, it’s the cheapest way into a Lamborghini.
The cheapest V12-powered Lamborghini on Autotrader is this 2004 Murcielago coupe. Offered by Motor Werks of Barrington in the Chicago area, this Murcielago has covered just over 34,000 miles since new, which is a big figure — and it’s finished in a striking white with black on the lower half, though this color scheme could be a wrap. It’s offered for just $134,999 — a good number for the sought-after Murcielago, which once had the Aventador’s position at the head of the Lamborghini lineup.
