Lamborghini Veneno

The Lamborghini Veneno is already a rare masterpiece in itself, and today, the Italian supercar maker has confirmed that there will be a roadster variant of this exquisite car.

The Veneno is based on her more famous sibling, the Aventador, and now a topless Veneno will soon wow the world.

However, if you were hoping to get your hands on one of these, your just out of luck. Only four will built and one of these will go to the Lamborghini Museum in Sant’ Agata, Italy.

The other three Veneno Roadsters (as it is officially being called) were sold for a whopping $4 million each!

There has long since been rumours that Lamborghini was considering manufacturing a roadster version of the Veneno. Many supercar-lovers’ dreams came true when the rumours were confirmed by Car and Driver during an interview with the CEO of Lamborghini, Stephan Winkelmann.

At $4 million, the Veneno Roadster is 10% more expensive than the Veneno hard top.

With exception of the hard roof, making way for a roadster roof, the Veneno roadster will unlikely showcase any other major styling changes – however, we will have to wait to see what happens.

If you have always wanted to drive a Lamborghini with the wind blowing through your hair, then this is the car for you – that is, if you can get your hands on one!

The seven-speed dual clutch transmission will allow the Audi TT-RS to race to a speed from zero to 100 km/h in just about 4.3 seconds. If you didn’t know, this is 0.3 seconds faster than the 6-speed model.

The S-tronic transmission is integrated with a built-in launch control function. The company has limited the peak speed electronically to 250 km/h.

A look at the power department would bring to light that it has been left unaltered. The 2.5-litre five-cylinder TFSI engine returns 250 kW (340 PS / 335 bhp) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque.
