Lamborghini is a name that triggers images of ultra-luxurious superfast sports cars with incredibly striking bodywork and high sticker prices. While no Lamborghini car can be accused of being cheap, some commands 7-digit price tags that earn them spots on this list. Founded by Ferruccio Lamborghini in 1963 to compete with Ferrari, Lamborghini immediately distinguished itself with its rear mid-engined rear-wheel-drive sports cars.

Hard hit by the global financial downturn of the early '70s, the company suffered the indignity of bankruptcy in 1978. Today, however, as part of the Audi division of the Volkswagen Group it has established itself as a luxury sports carmaker of high repute. The high-performance roadsters and racers that wear the company's badge are noted for their head-turning design, cutting-edge technology, and blistering speed. With one feature—mind-boggling price tags—common for every car on this list, here are the most expensive Lamborghinis ever sold.

The roadster version of the Lamborghini Reventon was unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show and was powered by the Murciélago LP 670–4SV's engine. With an output of 661 hp and 487 lb-ft of torque, it sends the roadster from 0-62 mph in 3.4 seconds and to a top speed of 205 mph.

It was a bigger hit than the coupe version and a short production run of 15 vehicles made it a highly sought-after brand. Although the MSRP was $1,250,000 initially, high demand for the scarce showstopper drove the actual price to $2.2M.

Just 6 months after the Aventador's debut, Lamborghini began working on a roadster version—the Aventador J, which was unveiled in 2012 at the Geneva Motor Show. To save weight, the special one-off roadster came without a roof, windows, radio, and an air conditioner.

The head-turner of a car wore a unique muted red paint job and sported seats made from a proprietary material called "carbon skin". Powered by a 690 hp 6.5-liter V12 mill, the Aventador J was snapped up for $2.8M before it was even shown in Geneva.
