A unique first-gen Lamborghini Murcielago is being sold by RM Sotheby’s at the company’s auction on September 7.

This particular Murcielago managed to set three world records in February 2002 during testing at the Nardo Ring. The first was the record for the longest distance travelled in one hour with it travelling 305.2 km. It then went on to claim a record for the fastest car to travel 100 km/h with it completing the feat in just 18 minutes and 44.9 seconds. Last but not least, it set a new record for the fastest production vehicle to cover 160 km, doing so in 30 minutes and 9 seconds.

On the back of the vehicle’s record runs, it returned to the company’s factory and was used as a prototype before being sold to an Italian-based collector in 2002. That original private owner drove it frequently with it covering 117,500 km.

It is being sold without a reserve and is expected to fetch between 120,000 and 160,000 euros.
