There are only a handful of cars that compete with the Lamborghini Veneno in terms of being a real attention-grabber. So it goes without saying that anytime the Veneno appears on track, we’re going to be drooling all over it, or at least the thought of driving it.
Fortunately, YouTube user Shmee150 always happens to be in the right place at the right time. This time around, he manages to take a video of the mighty Lamborghini supercar doing some laps on the Vallelunga circuit just outside of Rome, Italy.
As you may know, only three Venenos were released out to the public, but this one isn’t one of them. This particular Veneno is actually a factory-owned supercar but even with that designation, the Veneno is still beyond words. Even more so if it’s laying waste to a race track.
Then again, that’s usually what happens when you have a car that packs 750 horsepower and can hit 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds to go with a top speed of 220 mph.

The Lamborghini Veneno was unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show and while it may not have all the full-blown qualities of the Ferrari LaFerrari and the McLaren P1, it still has a whole load of power it can tap to at any moment’s notice.
The Veneno is powered by the same 6.5-liter, V-12 engine found in the Aventador, but with the output increased to 750 horsepower. The supercar is also 275 pounds lighter than the Aventador, so its performance numbers are quite stunning: 0 to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 221 mph.
