When it comes to looks, the new Lamborghini Veneno is definitely not in our list of favorite cars, but that nasty growl its engine makes surely tops the list. YouTube user NM2255 had the chance to catch one of only three Veneno units while it was being carefully loaded onto a truck. You can imagine how lucky he was, as there is pretty much no chance of seeing this $4 million supercar in the real world.
He managed to shoot both the exterior and the interior of the supercar, and the driver was kind enough to rev the V-12 engine for him. The engine delivers a total of 750 horsepower and sprints the Veneno from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds and up to a top speed of 221 mph.
If you ask us, the Veneno should have been the perfect Lamborghini, that of course if the company hadn’t lost their freaking minds in the design studio.
There are two models that we have all been awaiting to debut at Geneva. The first of those two models has been teased to the point that we pretty much already know what it will look like – the F70 by Ferrari – and the other has remained relatively mysterious. This mysterious model is the 50th anniversary vehicle from Lamborghini. Well, now the script has been flipped on its ear, as the official details on the new Veneno supercar have been released with just a few hours before its Geneva debut.
Like with all the other Lambo supercars, the new Venevo takes its name from the fighting arena: Veneno is one of the strongest and most aggressive fighting bulls ever. In 1914 he wounded the famous torero José Sánchez Rodríguez during the bullfight in the arena Sanlúcar de Barrameda’s, Andalusia, Spain.
Even though we are sorry to do it, we have to start this good news with bad news: the new Lamborghini Veneno will be limited to only three units, and despite its huge price tag of €3 million ($3.9 million at the current exchange rates), the model is already sold out!
Updated 03/11/2013: Today we have added a series of new images for the Veneno taken on the Geneva floor, plus a new video shot at the same show. Enjoy!
