While seeing Lamborghinis cross the block at auctions across America is far from rare, it’s not too often that the same event gets to sell six of them. This rare display will be hosted by Mecum’s sale in Seattle on June 5th to 6th, where Lamborghini enthusiasts will get to buy — or at least admire — six Italian bulls built from 1989 to 2010.

Yes, there won’t be any Miuras or Espadas to ogle at, but the Lambo lot includes a late-edition Countach and a bundle of Diablos and Murcielagos, some of which are very rare.

The oldest supercar on sale is a 1989 Countach 25th Anniversary. Part of the limited, 658-unit edition that marked the end of the nameplate, this car is also one of only 187 examples produced with fuel injection for the U.S. and Canadian markets. The Bianco White-painted Countach has 28,420 miles on its odo.

Next in line is a black 1992 Diablo. Though it’s only a standard model, it does feature a rear wing, SV wheels, and Pirelli P Zero tires. With only 11,643 miles on the clock, it should attract a few bidders. The second Diablo to go under the hammer is a 1999 model year Roadster. Significantly more powerful than the early coupe, it has 30,188 miles on the odometer and just received a $12,500 major service. It features a front lift system, navigation, polished wheels, and an aftermarket stereo head unit with six-disc CD player and remotes.

More Diablos and Murcielagos

The third Diablo on sale is a 2001 VT. One of the very last Diablos produced, the VT used the company’s Viscous Traction system, which sent up to 25 percent of the engine’s power to the front wheels, aiding traction and improving handling. Driven for only 26,741 miles, it features a carbon-fiber interior trim, color rear-view camera, Brembo brakes, Alpine stereo, and an aftermarket carbon-fiber wing.

Moving over to models that have been discontinued less than a decade ago, Mecum offers a 2009 Murcielago Roadster described as a "special order, one-owner" car loaded with optional extras "that added up to an original MSRP of over $441,000." Extras include an E-Gear semiautomatic transmission, a carbon-fiber engine brace, carbon-ceramic brakes with yellow calipers, an aftermarket exhaust, and a carbon-fiber rear wing. This may be the highlight of this Lamborghini lot.

Last, there’s a 2010 Murcielago SV with only 8,850 miles on the clock. One of only 42 models shipped to the U.S., it is also loaded with optional extra, including yellow calipers, Alcantara, leather and carbon-fiber inserts for the interior, E-Gear shift paddles and SV logo mats. It also features a color rear-view camera, navigation, Sirius radio capability, iPod and Bluetooth, and a fully upgraded sound system. Aftermarket goodies include a Kreissieg exhaust system and new Rosa Corsa tires.

Why it matters

This year’s Seattle auction attractions may also include several classic muscle cars, including a 1969 COPO Camaro, a 1970 Hemi Challenger, and a 1969 Mustang dragster by Holman Moody, but these Lambos are likely to attract bidders as well. And because most of them are still in tip-top shape and have less than 30K miles on their odometers, I wouldn’t be surprised to see them fetch more than some American classics. Supercars don’t need to become vintage collectibles to go up in value, and this auction might prove just that.
