With just four units destined for production and just 3 heading to customers, the Lamborghini Veneno is one of the rarest cars ever offered to the public. What’s more, with an extraordinary price tag of $4.1 million in the U.S., it is also one of, if not the most expensive car ever created.
Two Venenos are heading to the United States while it is believed the final example is heading somewhere in the Middle East. Just a couple of days ago, Kris Singh, the first Lamborghini Veneno owner in the United States had his long-awaited supercar delivered almost exactly one year after it debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in early March 2013.
Making Singh’s Veneno all the more unique is the fact that instead of the red pinstripping featured on the original display car which Lamborghini is believed to be keeping for itself, this example features bright green pinstripping. Additionally, it includes green accents on the wheels and green brake calipers!
With a maximum output of 750 hp, the Veneno accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds and the top speed for this street-legal racing car stands at 355 km/h. The Lamborghini Veneno features a twelve-cylinder power unit with a displacement of 6.5 liters, an extremely fast-shifting 7-speed ISR transmission with 5 driving modes and permanent all-wheel drive, as well as a racing chassis with pushrod suspension and horizontal spring/damper units.
Above all, however, the Veneno benefits from the very special expertise that Automobili Lamborghini possesses in the development and execution of carbon-fiber materials – the complete chassis is produced as a CFRP monocoque, as is the outer skin of this extreme sports car. The inside, too, features innovative, Lamborghini-patented materials such as Forged Composite and CarbonSkin.
