Attention McLaren and Ferrari: the gauntlet has been thrown.
The 2013 Geneva Motor Show is in full swing, and with it the next round of supercars. Meet the latest from the Raging Bull: The Lamborghini Veneno. Veneno is said to have been among the strongest and fastest fighting bulls in history and its namesake is certainly worthy of carrying on the title. Before you get too excited, this model will not be added to our fleet of Lamborghini rentals!
One of just 3 Lamborghini Venenos units, produced by Automobili Lamborghini SpA, on display on the first day of the 83rd Geneva International Motor Show in Geneva, Switzerland, on Tuesday, March 5, 2013.
That is because just three examples of the Lamborghini Veneno will be produced and at a jaw-dropping $3.9 million each, all are spoken for. To put the staggering price tag into perspective, one can purchase a brand new 2013 Lamborghini Aventador for $397,500-$441,600 MSRP. The fastest production car on earth, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, is under $2 million. Where is Lamborghini getting off with the pricing? Exclusivity, of course!
Based on the award-winning and most powerful Lamborghini in history, the Aventador, the Lamborghini Veneno is a touch more powerful and appears more aggressive. It packs the same 6.5-liter V12 from the Aventador, boosted up to 739bhp with a max speed of 220 miles per hour. The Veneno also features permanent 4WD, a specialized carbon monocoque chassis and the suspension is an inboard pushrod.
Lamborghini Veneno resembles a racing prototype with the exaggerated scoops and fins, perhaps even a bit like the Audi that won the Le Mans 24Hour. Overall, it certainly fits in nicely with its superpowered supercar siblings. Lamborghini’s top recent achievements include the Aventador, the one-off Aventador J, the Sesto Elemento and now baby Veneno.

The rear view seems entirely too bulky to be aerodynamic. Or that it could shred any obstacle and blow it out the back end. Performance remains to be seen.
