When Lamborghini revealed the Veneno hypercar at the Geneva Motor Show this year, everyone was understandably shocked and amazed. Such a crazy looking car, with a crazy price tag and incredible rarity, limited to only 3 examples already sold to exclusive Lambo customers.

Well now Lamborghini has decided to go one further, with the reveal of the Veneno Roadster. We admit, we weren’t too sold on the looks of the coupe version – maybe it was the grey paint job, we don’t know – but whatever the reason that has gone straight out of the window with the Roadster! We think this is one absolutely outrageous, crazy, incredible hypercar that could only have come from Lamborghini.

The styling is basically the coupe without the roof section, but along with the deep red of the car in the press shots it looks so much more glamorous now. The front end is basically one large wing, providing large amounts of downforce, while there is a flat undertray with a huge diffuser at the rear. There is a massive adjustable carbon wing at the back and carbon brake cooling rings on the wheels.

Still based around the Aventador, the Veneno Roadster uses that car’s 6.5 litre V12, tuned to 740 bhp going through the semi auto gearbox to all four wheels. 0 – 62 mph is dealt with in 2.9 seconds and the top speed is 220 mph with the roof off – as there is no roof.

Lamborghini will be making nine examples of the Veneno Roadster, with the special ‘Veneno Red’ paint designed just for the car. But if you want one you’ll have to act fast and have very, very deep pockets – the price tag is a staggering £2,790,000 making it the most expensive car currently on sale.
