Lamborghini Veneno Roadster gets its public debut on an Aircraft Carrier in Abu DhabiTue, 03 Dec 2013
The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster (pictured) debuts in Abu Dhabi
Depending on your point of view, the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is either the summit of Lamborghini’s extreme cars or a cynical exercise to milk cash from those with more money than sense. An open-topped version of the equally cynical Lamborghini Veneno Coupe, Lamborghini say the Roadster has the aerodynamic efficiency of a racing prototype thanks to its perfect airflow and downforce and its stiff and light CFRP monocoque and body panels.
But at £3.35 million, the Veneno Roadster costs ten times the equivalent – and just as quick – Aventador Roadster, so you’re paying a huge premium for one of the nine Veneno Roadsters Lamborghini are planning to build in 2014.
The fact Lamborghini has chose to debut the Veneno Roadster in public for the first time onboard an Italian Aircraft Carrier docked in Abu Dhabi probably tells you all you need to know about who Lamborghini are planning on flogging the vastly overpriced Veneno to (for the same money you could have a McLaren P1, LaFerrari and Porsche 918 Spyder), but as far as we know they still haven’t sold all nine cars.
So if you’re have more money than sense – and would prefer a Veneno Roadster to a trio of the ultimate supercars built – you could always give Lamborghini a call and send them a big wad of cash to bolster their bank balance.
