Trade Me

This Lamborghini has $1 reserve on Trade Me

IF you've always wanted a Lamborghini but couldn't justify remortgaging your house, consider this.

A $500,000 Lamborghini Huracan is for sale through a $1 reserve auction on Trade Me.

The catch? It's written off.

It is understood the heavily damaged Huracan was involved in a single-car accident off-road, and is being sold by Star Auctions on behalf of an insurance company.

The auction says the 5.2 litre, V10 luxury sports car has a damaged chassis, and photos show almost all areas of the car have been affected by the crash, including heavy damage to the front of the vehicle.

The engine is at the rear of the car and appears to be undamaged -- a factor likely to entice potential bidders.

A video posted on the auction shows the engine starts and runs, and is almost brand new, with fewer than 1000km on the odometer.

Luxury car dealer Independent Prestige said the supercar sells for upwards of $500,000 depending on what extras and additions are bought.

The car -- or at least a working one -- hits 100km/h in 3.2 seconds and has a top speed of more than 325km/hr.

The auction closes on Wednesday March 30. Bids have now surpassed $50,000.

They'd reached $51,200 just before midday today.

The Huracan, Spanish for Hurricane, debuted in 2014 and replaces the Lamborghini's most popular car, the Gallardo.
