If you have to ask, then you really, really can’t afford the newly revealed Lamborghini Veneno Roadster. This little supercar will set you back a cool $4.5 million dollars.
The newest Lamborghini supercar is a roofless version of the Veneno coupe that debuted at the Geneva Motor Show last year. No, it’s not a convertible. It doesn’t actually have any kind of roof to speak of, just a roll bar in case you crash your sexy supercar.
Not only will you need to have rather deep pockets if you hope to park this beauty in your driveway, you’re going to have to act relatively quickly. They’re only planning on building nine of these supercars in 2014. That’s more than double the four Lamborghini Veneno coupes that were made, and one of those is sitting in the Lamborghini museum.
They’re not just making more of the Roadster, they’re making it more expensive, too. It’s running $500,000 more than the coupe, but really, when you’re shelling out this kind of cash for a car, does that amount of money even matter? I’m betting not.
The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster will be powered by a monster 750 horsepower 6.5-liter V12. It’ll go from zero to 62 miles per hour in just 2.9 seconds and can make a top speed of 221 miles per hour.
The design of the car was focused on boosting downforce and minimizing drag to give superior handling on the road or on the track. Every last detail on the car works toward this end goal, including a front end that functions like an aerodynamic wing.
Not surprisingly, the car is a wonder of carbon fiber-reinforced polymers, both inside and out. They’ve even woven it into the fabrics used on the interior.
The custom color shown in the photo, Rosso Veneno, is just one of the colors you can choose for your supercar. You can pick whatever color you like for this one, unlike the Veneno coupe which was limited to just three color choices.
Nicole Wakelin fell in love with cars as a teenager when she got to go for a ride in a Ferrari. It was red and it was fast and that was all that mattered. Game over. She considers things a bit more carefully now, but still has a weakness for fast, beautiful cars. Nicole also writes for NerdApproved and GeekMom.
