We have seen some rare cars with history gaining in value over the years and fetching obscene prices at auctions. Lamborghini has now unveiled a limited edition design which will be the world’s most expensive new car. Called the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster, it is one of their most aggressive super models that can be categorized as a hyper-car. With a price tag of a staggering £3.36 million, it is easily the most expensive car you can buy today. The limited edition model comes without a roof and has many elements of a race car. The Italian car maker has made it into one of the most extreme vehicles ever built but have taken care to keep it entirely road legal.
The Car Can Accelerate From 0 to 62mph in 2.9 Seconds
The power of the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is derived from a 750bhp V12 engine which is capable of a top speed of 220mph, but more importantly, it can accelerate the car from 0 to 62mph in just 2.9 seconds. The body of the hyper-car is made from the same lightweight carbon fiber which was used for the hardtop version. Only three of them were made at £3 million apiece. This topless edition will also be limited to only nine units and as mentioned earlier will be even more expensive at £3.36 million. For that kind of money you could buy 335 units of Ford Fiesta. The Italian car maker has positioned this model as ‘one of the most exceptional super sports cars of all time’.
All the Nine Units to be Produced Will be Delivered in 2014
The car handles like a racing car and has been designed to derive optimum aerodynamics and stability. The design of the body is such that it boosts downforce and minimizes drag to give you the ultimate driving experience both on track and road. The front end of the car functions like a large aerodynamic wing. The rear fenders of the car also help its aerodynamics. Its 6.5-litre engine and a fast gearbox send the huge power to all four wheels. The limited edition is a commemorative design to celebrate Lamborghini’s 50th anniversary. All the nine units of the new design will be ready for delivery next year in 2014.
