This One-of-Nine Lamborghini Veneno Roadster Could Be Yours
Will fetch millions at auction
The Veneno is one special edition Lamborghini that is impossible to forget. After making four copies of the Veneno coupe in 2013, Lamborghini introduced the roadster version, of which nine were produced—each costing around $4.5 million. Now, a Veneno Roadster formerly owned by a member of the Saudia Arabian royal family is on the market, and RM Sotheby's estimates its value at roughly $5-6 million.
This particular copy was the second roadster to leave the factory, and it sports a black and lime green exterior. This color scheme continues inside the cabin, which features green sport seats and dashboard accents. According to RM Sotheby's, the car has just 280 miles on the odometer from its two previous owners.
Power comes from the Aventador's naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V-12 engine. However, the Veneno makes 49 more ponies than its progenitor for a total of 740 hp. The car is estimated to go from 0-62 mph in 2.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 221 mph. Carbon fiber is key: All exterior parts are made from carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer, and the carbon-fiber monocoque is visible inside the car around the central tunnel and the sills.
Unsurprisingly, Venenos have sold for top dollar at previous auctions. Last year, a Veneno Roadster fetched around $8.5 million at auction in Switzerland.
The black and green Veneno Roadster hits the auction block in Paris on February 5.
