Million-dollar Lamborghini Aventador among a dozen supercars being auctioned in Adelaide

  •  Almost a dozen luxury supercars are being auctioned in Adelaide this weekend 
  •  A 50th anniversary edition Lamborghini Aventador is expected to fetch a million
  •  Also on sale is the final race car owned by race car driver Sir Jack Brabham

The final race car owned by Australia’s greatest driver, Sir Jack Brabham, will be among a slew of supercars going under the hammer at an auction in Adelaide this weekend.

The Holden Torana is etched in Australian history after he used it to finish sixth at Bathurst in 1978 in the last race of his decorated career.

Ten other high-performance vehicles are also for sale including a $1million Lamborghini Aventador – the same model used in a Transformers movie.

The auction is being held at the du Plessis’ Fine Art of Fine Driving event where sales are expected to gross more $4 million in a rare opportunity for cashed-up car lovers.

Also going under the hammer is the final race car owned by Sir Jack Brabham, Australia’s greatest driver which he raced at Bathurst in 1978

‘This Torana was the last car that Sir Jack Brabham owned and raced in. A huge honour from the man who was probably Australia’s greatest ever championship race driver,’ Marc du Plessis told 9Finance. 

The car is expected to fetch up to $700,000 when put under the hammer this weekend.

 The four-year-old luxury Lamborghini on sale is just one of two in Australia and among only 100 of the 50th anniversary edition released across the globe.

The car is known for its roaring engine, sleek design and ability to reach 100 kilometres an hour in less than three seconds. 

The same model ‘starred’ in 2014’s Transformers: Age of Extinction as the film’s antagonist Lockdown.
