Lamborghini has always designed cars that push the boundaries of design. However, I’m not so sure the folks in Sant’Agata have ever designed something some crazy. The Lamborghini Veneno debuted back in 2013 and is based on the current Aventador. When it was new, its three units that were sold wore price tags upwards of $4,500,000, making it the most expensive production car in the world at the time. If that wasn’t enough, just look at it. It has enough scoops, gills and flares to make an F-22 Raptor look like a toy.
But that isn’t all. Its 6.5 liter naturally-aspirated V12 makes 740 hp and the Veneno only weighs 3,200 lbs, so it can get from 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds. It also sounds like hell’s thunderstorm. So, basically, it’s insane. What’s even more insane is driving one on a wet racetrack.
Turns out, that’s exactly what this psychopath does and it gets a bit slippery. Admittedly, they drive it pretty timidly, which is a bit boring (who drives a 740 hp Lamborghini timidly, even in the rain?). However, it’s still awesome to see the Veneno in action, as it’s one of the most extreme production cars ever made, in both design and powertrain. Oh, and listen to that flipping V12.
