One Of Three: The Lamborghini Veneno

Say hello to what just might be the wildest Lamborghini ever made – the Veneno. Not only is the Veneno a mad looking machine, but you can’t buy one. First of all, it’s priced at a staggering $4.6 million dollars. Second, even if you happen to have 4.6 million burning a hole in your pocket, the Veneno is already sold out.

Sold out? Yes, each one of the three Venenos to be produced have already been spoken for. That’s right Lamborghini only plans to build three of these things.

All the official details on the car will come out this week when the car appears at the Geneva Motor Show.

Even so, word suggests the Veneno will be based on the Aventador, have 740 horsepower and get to 100kmph in less than three seconds.

We’ll have more soon on the Veneno and the rest of the machines making their debuts at what’s looking to be a very exciting Geneva show.

-Mike

I don't think people get it...they're meant to be ridiculous hypercars, like something from the future that will kill you with lasers and make love to your microwave! That's the whole idea!

The moment I learned it is BASED on an Aventador, overkill.

So you get an Aventador with +40Hp more and the ugliest Bodykit ever made in car history for 4,5 Million $.

 

Lamborghini totally lost their mind. This car is ridiculous as the price is. Even some original historic LeMans Race Cars don't cost 4,5 Million.

I'll take a poster for my wall. Thank you for finding my inner child for me Lamborghini.

I do like the Gandini arch lines at the back, I'll take the aero wheel covers too

I'll take the Front splitter, skirts and rear diffuser on 2 matt black chop top Aventadors for a quarter of the price please. Oh and quad turbos with that... Each!

Great prototype...... but not for a limited 3 versions IRL. It's way over the top imho. Not only referring to the costs.... OMG!

Ah yes, the tractor makers, bless 'em. Has anybody else noticed the way, no matter how much money these guys throw at the design of a car - and how much their customers throw at them - what they come up with is still always, in some undefinable way... a tractor? In this case a tractor for merchant bankers, Saudi princelings, or russian mobsters, with more money (and Batman comics) than sense. I guess their tractor-making roots run deep.

 

Nothing wrong with tractors mind you. In fact i think i'd feel LESS like a berk (and get on fewer people's nerves) driving an actual tractor down the highway, than i would one of these things.

Is faster than an Aventador. So, how much fast they can go? 3s? Yes. 2,5s? Yes. 2s? Maybe. 1,5s? Dont think so 1s? Clearly they cant be that fast on a road with tires not gums. So.....in 10 years the fastest cars will hit maximum and than stop. Design a confort will be in demand again.

They're building three-too-many of these. I remember when Lamborghinis used to look beautiful, not like stealth fighters.

It is "Overdesigned" space-ship! I  can't even compare this ... with  McLaren P1, which has exactly a futuristic supercar look.Do Lamborghini (VW) designers work for NASA ?!

Apart from the profile, it looks terrible. There's simply too much happening and its lines are poorly defined. Its for those who don't know how to spend thier money properly/spend it all flaunting their wealth.

To be honest, I wouldn't exactly like to be seen driving one anyway.

Very amusing that this is so close to the just announced Audi R18 Street.  Looks great.

I think it's a great looking car, but the price is pretty out there. Not worth 4.6M when you look at the performance figures. I read the top speed is 220mph, the bhp is ~740 and I haven't found a weight figure yet. Amazing what some people will pay for "exclusivity." Naturally I'm going to catch flak from the internet engineers and general speed hunters population, but I think this car is ugly and it isn't worth anywhere near the asking price. 

 

Maybe that engineer who was arguing that you can't build a car faster than the P1 for 400k will chime in on this one. I suppose the more expensive a car is the more untouchable it becomes these days *rolls eyes.* What a ridiculous car. Thank God it has a blown rear wing, can't imagine what a car that sits in a warehouse / garage all day would do without that blown wing. 

 

Love Lamborghini, but the Aventador J kicks the sh*t out of this on every level.

There's a storm coming, Mr. Wayne. You and your friends better batten down the hatches, because when it hits, you're all gonna wonder how you ever thought you could live so large and leave so little for the rest of us.

I like it, it's vulgar and definately not as sexy as The P1, but i like it. And that Side Shot is pure 21 century Diablo.

For 4.5M I'd rather buy an autoclave, a wind tunnel, and a handful of CNC machines... but if all my spare time went to running a small oil exporting nation and a large harem, I guess I'd be happy to just buy one of these.

You would look like a tool driving that on the street. Suitable for track days only.

Idk, it looks cool and all, but if only 3 are made then they'll rarely if ever be driven anywhere. They'll just sit as a collector's pieces in a a garage somewhere and rot, which is kinda sad. They might as well be a diamonds or a bricks of gold instead of cars. I don't know where these are going, but I can guess its an oil rich country somewhere, as they are the only places that waste even more monstrous amounts of money cars than Americans. 

I like the design, but I cannot approve of it being called a car since it won't see the road. Sad.

I feel like there's a lot of question about why on this car. As well as a lot of judgments on the style and design. I think Lamborghini's new motto should just be:

 

Lamborghini: Because Fuck You, That's Why.

this is not a dream car. this is just a statement that some people just have too much money

@Cartel777 Haha "Lost their mind"?  They are already sold out.  Something tells me Lamborghini knows EXACTLY what they are doing.

nugundam93

the price probably got jacked-up because of the low number of units made.

 

still, at that price, i hope this is crazier than the P1.  heheh.

 @DomoKun Of course this comes from the same guy who said a GTR with $200,000 in modifications would be "just a nissan" at the end of the day. Theres nothing special about this car buddy. Sorry to break it to you. It's top speed is fast as hell, but hardly remarkable. It makes 740bhp which again is great...but hardly remarkable for 4.2 millions dollars. It has wacky styling, a big wing and slick tires. Do you actually assess the value of things before you admire them or does glitter increase the price of anything 10 fold? I have this huge plot of land in Florida with your name on it Domo.

Of course some guy in Dubai got one. Have you ever seen what those people consider "good taste" in design? The only criteria for good design in the middle east is as follows: 

 

1) Lined with diamonds / gems

2) Stupidly over priced with no sense attached to the purchase

3) Exclusivity

4) It can't be used for 90% of it's intended purpose

 

If women had more of a say in the middle east maybe their taste would improve.

 @FunctionFirst Truth. I like it, it's so far OTT that it could ONLY be a Lamborghini, and really... I'd reckon that Lambo doesn't give a rats ass what any body else thinks about the Veneno. They made 4. One with all three stripes of the Italian flag (that one stays with Lambo), and three more; each with single colour from the flag.

 @nugundam93 Yeah man, it's definitely price because of the minimum units being produced. It's just amazing to me that people will fork that kind of cash over for "exclusivity." Cars like this are bought for pissing competitions as opposed to actually being used. It's a shame and kind of a sad twisted idea when you really stop and think about it. 

 

It's like someone asking you to pay $100,000 for a fork. You buy that fork so you can put it in a show case and say "AHA! Marvel at my $100,000 fork. I've done something with my life!" 

 

Mean your neighbor is cooking a roast you can smell from 3 houses over and everyones eating. I suppose I come from the school of thought where I don't understand this thing. I literally don't comprehend it. You could buy a Formula Atlantic car, Rolls / Maybach, a Huayra, and a few other cars for the asking price of this one and all of the aforementioned cars are either faster, more luxurious or have more attention to detail than this. 

 

Truly a mark that this car is solely manufactured for really no reason. It's bound to be fast...but you get the sense it was just designed to sucker some guy out of ~4 million so someone in Lamborghini could pay off his 5th mediterranean home. 

DomoKun

Yawn... A Nissan will still be a Nissan with money spent on it you keep on comparing a GTR to a P1 Mr 12 years racing experience.  Why buy a P1 when you can buy a GTR and throw money at it this is what you pretty much said.. If you actually read the comment I said Lambos are awesome which they are no matter the price tag which seems to be your grievance with every super car that gets posted on here. Build a bridge and get over it its not as if you'll be buying any of them. Maybe you should sell that plot you got buy a couple of nissans and make them go faster than every super car being released.

Oh and you say there is nothing special about a 4.6 million dollar Lambo of which only three will be produced yeah nothing special about that alright.. Troll on dude
