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!

Lamborghini Veneno Vs Ferrari Sergio, The Answer to Supercar Boredom

Lamborghini Veneno Vs Ferrari Sergio, The Answer to Supercar Boredom

There are no wrong choice, really

Like most people who eat, sleep, and breathe cars, I often find myself going to online classifieds to see which cars are up for sale. It doesn’t matter the price, the location, or even my ability to actually buy them. I just like looking at them and wonder who’ll end up paying that much money on what effectively are second-hand cars. This week though, I chanced upon two vehicles that don’t count as traditional cars. Heck, “traditional” isn’t even the word I’d use to describe them as supercars. These two ungodly beasts - a Lamborghini Veneno and a Ferrari Sergio - fall into categories unto themselves.

It doesn’t even matter that one of them is being sold for a price of $9.5 million whereas the other costs a “far more affordable” sum of $6.1 million. What got me is that they’re being sold roughly the same time, though not exactly by the same seller. So I thought that, if I had the money to purchase either of these two cars, which one would I buy? Would I splurge on the Veneno or the Sergio? There are obviously no wrong answers; it’s just a matter of taste, preference, or in the case of the Sergio, saving a little over $3 million in the process. Better yet, I asked my colleagues the same question. Given a choice, is it the mind-numbing Veneno or the no less spectacular Sergio?

Super Limited Lamborghini Venenos Isn't Immune From The Recall Bug

Super Limited Lamborghini Venenos Isn’t Immune From The Recall Bug

Massive Lamborghini recall also includes five year’s worth of Lamborghini Aventador models

Just because a car that’s limited to just 12 units – three coupes and nine roadsters – and costs $4.5 million each, doesn’t mean it’s impervious to technical malfunctions. The ultra-limited Lamborghini Veneno found that out the hard way after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) included the ridiculously powerful and obscenely expensive supercar among a list of Lambos that are at risk of catching fire.

According to a report, Lamborghini submitted to the NHTSA, issues in the fuel tank’s EVAP could cause liquid fuel to get into the EVAP system in certain circumstances. This includes filling the fuel tank to the brim and “particular handling situations.” We can only assume those handling situations include instances when a car’s fuel is getting splashed inside. Hard accelerations, perhaps? Super tight cornering? Sudden brakes? In any event, if the fuel does end up into the EVAP system, there’s a good chance flammable vapor can escape, which in turn could ignite and cause a fire.

In addition to the exclusive Veneno, the recall also affects 2012 to 2017 model years of the Lamborghini Aventador and all of its variants, of which the Veneno. All in all, a report from Bloomberg indicates that a total of 1,453 Lamborghinis are affected in the U.S. and around 4,500 units all over the world.

Like with most recalls (this one is without question is a high-profile one), owners of affected cars should expect to be notified by Lamborghini, which in turn will schedule an appointment to have the EVAP system fixed with all the repairs coming at no cost to the car owners. So if you have an affected Lamborghini Aventador or one of the 12 Venenos that are also affected, exercising caution when driving your cars would be a great idea. Better yet, why don’t you keep it under the sheets, at least until Lamborghini fixes the issues.

Equatorial Guinea VP Gets Supercar Collection Confiscated

Equatorial Guinea VP Gets Supercar Collection Confiscated

The list includes a Koenigsegg One:1 and a Lamborghini Veneno

There are only a handful of people in the world that can claim to own a Koenigsegg One:1 or a Lamborghini Veneno. There are even fewer who can say they own both. Equatorial Guinea vice president Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue had that distinction until recently, when both his One:1 and Veneno were confiscated by Swedish authorities in Geneva.

No specific reason has been given behind the confiscations of the two prized exotics, but it is believed to be related to a series of investigations surrounding Mangue and his lavish lifestyle as the son of long-standing dictator Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo. The extravagant son is accused of using public funds to finance his opulent lifestyle and according to other reports, he’s also accused of money laundering, among other charges.

The confiscation of the One:1 and the Veneno, not to mention a Bugatti Veyron, made headlines after Instagram user swissupercars posted a clip on his page showing the three exotics being loaded in the back of trucks by Swiss law enforcement authorities in Geneva.

Those who are familiar with Mangue’s reputation know that this isn’t the first time that his prized possessions has been raided by authorities. A similar incident happened in 2011 in Paris where French officials confiscated his entire collection of supercars, which included a Ferrari Enzo, Maserari MC12, Bentley Azure, Porsche Carrera GT, Ferrari 599 GTO, and a pair of Bugatti Veyrons. Those cars were eventually auctioned off in 2013, where it sold for a bargain price of just $4 million.

No word yet on what fate awaits the Koenigsegg One:1, Lamborghini Veneno, and Bugatti Veyron. But if history is used as a precedent, those cars could find themselves in an auction sooner than later. Better get those bids ready.

Final Lamborghini Veneno Delivered in Macau, China

Final Lamborghini Veneno Delivered in Macau, China

If you can find another car that’s as exclusive as the Lamborghini Veneno, we’d love to hear about it. But as it stands, this mental Italian supercar is one of the rarest in the world with Lambo only building three models for sale. Another one is being kept in-house in Sant’Agata just so Lamborghini can keep studying it for its future models.

As far as the three, we already know where the two are. They’re both in the U.S. To be more specific, the rare Lambos are in the garage of Lamborghini Long Island owner Antoine Dominic in New York and that of Tequesta Investments managing director Kris Singh in Florida. Both paid $4 million for their respective Venenos, thereby assuring their place in a most exclusive of clubs.

As for the third Veneno, that one is reportedly headed to Macau, China, or as folks on that side of the world would call it, the high-rollers’ playground. It’s only appropriate that a $4 million supercar would find its way to a loving owner in Macau who probably spends that much money in a day’s worth of gambling anyway.

Lifestyles of the rich and famous, indeed. That particular Veneno will be perfectly at home in a place where supercars and luxury cars run the roads like nobody’s business. But even those exotics will surely slow down and acquiese to the Veneno when its new owner proudly takes it out for a spin.

That’s the cache that comes with being an ultra rare $4 million supercar like what the Veneno is.

Video: Lamborghini Veneno Meets its New Owner in Miami

Video: Lamborghini Veneno Meets its New Owner in Miami

Count your blessings if you’ve been lucky enough to see the Lamborghini Veneno in person. Seeing as there are only three of these babies in existence, it’s a quite a sight to behold.

Better yet, count yourself really lucky if you just happen to have the financial freedom to afford one, kind of like one Kris Singh, who recently took delivery of the second Veneno in his own home on Miami Beach.

It’s become abundantly clear to a lot of people that the Veneno isn’t your ordinary Lamborghini, as if using the word ’ordinary’ to describe Lamborghini is already enough of a stretch as it is. But Singh, who is a manager of a private investment firm, isn’t your ordinary guy, either. The man clearly has the money to pay for a $4.1 million, even if his taste in the Veneno leaves a little to be desired.

Still and all, the mere fact that he had the Veneno delivered personally to his front door is worthy of being documented, which the folks over at duPont Registry were more than happy to do.

And you know what? The video also offers a nice look into the kind of customization — or lack there of — Singh put into his new Veneno before having it delivered to his house.

2015 Lamborghini Veneno Roadster

2015 Lamborghini Veneno Roadster

The Lamborghini Veneno hit the scene to a relatively lukewarm reception at best, but the lack of media and enthusiast frenzy sure didn’t stop it from planning a roadster version. The new Veneno Roadster was unveiled this past weekend, and there are few differences between it and the coupe model.

The typical roadster has a top that the driver can raise and lower at his demand, but the Veneno is no typical car. Instead, Lamborghini opted to hack the top off altogether.

In terms of overall design, the Veneno Roadster looks nearly identical to its coupe brother, so it retains that crazy exterior look, with exception to it lack of a roof.

Unlike the coupe versio, which was limited to just three units, Lamborghini will limit the new Veneno Roadster to nine units. Each will carry a price tag of $4.5 million.

Update 12/2/2013: The $4.5 million Veneno recently made its public debut in Abu Dhabi. The venue for the unveiling was something out of a Hollywood movie scene. That would be, an aircraft carrier. "We are honoured that Lamborghini was chosen to represent the Italian car industry in the UAE, as a perfect example of iconic Italian super sports cars, and that we have the opportunity to show the Veneno roadster for the first time in Abu Dhabi," said Lamborghini boss Stephan Winkelmann during the press conference.

Is this the real Lamborghini Veneno Roadster?

Is this the real Lamborghini Veneno Roadster?

It looks like Lamborghini learned nothing from all the critics the Veneno coupe received ever since its official launch and decided to still offer a roadster version of this rather strange supercar. Today we bring you what appears to be the first leaked images of the new Veneno Roadster and yes, is still as ugly as the coupe, despite the cool red exterior paint.

The roadster version will be equipped with the same carbon fiber exterior kit and will be offered with no roof, because it looks like the company wants to offer its customers "an intense driving experience." The model will only be equipped with a rollover bar and a pat on the back.

Unlike the Veneno Coupe, the roadster version will be built in nine units. Each will be priced at £3.3 million - or about $5,3 million an the current exchange rates. The color you see here is called "Rosso Veneno" and will be exclusively offered for the roadster version. Don’t worry, if you don’t like it you can still choose between a wide range of exterior paints.

The Lamborghini Veneno Makes its American Debut at Pebble Beach and The Quail

The Lamborghini Veneno Makes its American Debut at Pebble Beach and The Quail

The Lamborghini Veneno made its world debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show and shocked pretty much everyone, but not everyone took too kindly to it. Now, you’ll get a chance to see if this is either the best or worst Lamborghini you’ve ever seen, as Lambo will display the supercar at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance this weekend.

Prior to it hitting the Pebble Beach Concourse, the Veneno will make its North American debut on August 16th, at The Quail, A Motorsport Gathering, which will also bring into focus classic Lamborghini models, like the 1963 350 GTV. Veneno’s unveiling in Monterey is part of Lamborghini’s celebration of its 50th anniversary.

"We’re celebrating 100 years of innovation in half the time – what better way than by showing the first Lamborghini ever built alongside our latest racing prototype and road-going super sports car - the Veneno."

The $4 million supercar will be delivered to its lucky owners later this year.

Video: Lamborghini Veneno's Engine Comes to Life

Video: Lamborghini Veneno’s Engine Comes to Life

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.
