If you like Italian exotics and rare concept cars, we’re guessing you’ll like this. It is a 1980 concept car, built by the styling studio Bertone for Lamborghini. It’s called the Athon and it will soon be going on the auction block at the Villa d’Este concourse event.

Handled by RM Auctions house, this one of a kind Lamborghini is a fully functioning vehicle. It features a 3.0-liter, V8 engine (as found in the Silhouette from that era) which produces 260 hp. Power is sent to the rear-wheels via a five-speed manual gearbox.

RM Auctions predicts this model to fetch around $300,000. That is a paltry sum given its rarity factor. The car will hit the auction block on May 21.
