One of just nine Lamborghini Veneno Roadsters ever built is set to hit the auction block early next month in Paris. A work of masterful craftsmanship, this particular Veneno Roadster is expected to fetch somewhere between $5,000,000 and $6,100,000.
Lamborghini unveiled the next-level Veneno at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show in celebration of its 50th anniversary. Partially constructed from carbon fiber, designers at the Centro Stile Lamborghini worked tirelessly to maximize downforce by increasing the handling stability through fast corners.
Adhering to demand, as there were only four Venenos produced, Lamborghini announced a roadster version of the vehicle just one year later in 2014, while onboard the Italian Navy’s aircraft carrier Cavour docked in Abu Dhabi.
Each one of the nine Veneno Roadsters was spoken for prior to the car’s public reveal. This particular model, the second to leave the factory, was purchased by a member of the House of Saud, the royal family of Saudi Arabia.
The matte black vehicle boasts lime green pinstriping on the exterior, matching the interior which is trimmed in lime green and black leather. Similar to the regular Veneno, the roadster features a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V-12 engine producing 750 bhp, traveling from 0 to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds before topping out at 221 mph.
What promises to be a true collector’s car, this 2015 Lamborghini Veneno Roadster his the auction block via RM Sotheby’s on February 5 in Paris.
