The Pregunta Was Lambo’s Original 207mph Jet Fighter For The Street

Remember the Lamborghini Reventon? It’s the F16 fighter jet-inspired, rebodied Murcielago. For your £850,000 you got one of just 20 bespoke supercars, complete with military-inspired speedo readouts and a 221mph top speed. It’s a pretty amazing piece of automotive design. But the idea? What you might not know is the notion of a jet fighter for the road has been in Lamborghini’s blood longer than you might think.

Back in 1998, Lamborghini was on the brink of being sold to Audi. In the months before the deal was signed, Lambo had one last crack at complete craziness, and built this, the insane, one-off Pregunta.

Underneath the bodywork, the Pregunta (Spanish for ‘question’, weirdly) is a Diablo, packing a 530bhp V12. It’s good for 0-60mph in 3.9sec, and a top speed of 207mph. As amazing as those stats are, forget the numbers. Just look at it! The brief for the design team was to build a car that was impossible to confuse with any other car’s shape in the world. Mission accomplished, chaps.

Instead of riffing off American fighter jet styling, the Pregunta took its inspiration from the French Air Force’s Dassault Rafale aircraft. For 1998, the on-board tech spec is wildly impressive: there’s fibre-optic lighting, GPS, rear-view cameras instead of mirrors, but the drivetrain was old school. Diablo all-wheel drive was binned for good old-fashioned rear-drive, and the transmission is a five-speed, open-gated manual.

Although the car’s radiators had to be relocated to the front because of space constraints, the Pregunta is actually lighter than a Diablo, thanks to its basic cabin and lack of all-wheel drive.

Inside, the bucket seats are moulded into the cabin structure itself, saving weight and creating a race car-like environment. There’s an LCD instrument display instead of regular analogue dials, and no roof; just a roll bar with an air snorkel to feed that huge powerhouse.

No jet-inspired concept car would be complete without a nod to proper weapons-grade tech, and the Pregunta doesn’t disappoint. The matte grey finish, applied long before matte wraps became cool, is actually the same radar-absorbing surface applied to the Rafale fighter jet.
