The state plans to auction off a 2007 Lamborghini Gallardo Nera two-door coupe at a surplus vehicle and equipment auction on Wednesday, Nov. 8 in Albany following its seizure by the state attorney general’s office four years ago during an investigation into a $3.2 million Medicaid fraud case in Brooklyn.

According to Car and Driver, there were less than 200 Gallardo Nera editions produced in 2007, the only year it was in production. The car has an estimated retail value of approximately $150,000. It has the chance to be the most expensive item ever sold at a state surplus auction after a 2013 Mercedes G63 was sold to a car dealer.

The auction will take place at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 8, at the Harriman State Office Campus. Items up for sale will be available for inspection beginning at 8:30 a.m. that day. A full list of the luxury items to be auctioned can be found online.
