This Is the New, Utterly Drool-Worthy £3m Lamborghini Veneno

By Sam Gibbs on at

Yes folks, Lamborghini is finally back. The Germans might own it, and might have tempered its bat-shit-mental pin-up stylings, and way-over-the-top specs for a bit, but the Lamborghini of old is now back with a vengence. This is the insane new Veneno, Lambo's new £3 million hypercar that deserves to be your desktop background.

Don't get me wrong, the Aventador is badass, but not in the Diablo, Countash, Lambo-of-old kind of way. Hell, it's almost practical, and the Audi-blood made it a car you can actually drive without killing yourself. But that's just not how Lambos should be.

The Veneno takes the Aventador and goes mental. Look at those enormous angular vents, the obscene spoiler, the razor-like frontend, and the positively alien-looking roof ridges -- when was the last time you saw something so out-there drool-worthy? I used to draw cars that looked something like that when I was a kid, but they had rocket-boosters spitting fire out of the back and could fly into space.

With 750bhp from a 6.5L V12 engine propelling the thing to a blistering 220mph top speed, the Lamborghini Veneno is the sub-three-second car of my dreams. Unfortunately, it'll forever stay that way too, not because of the money, but because only four of them are ever being made. Lambo's making a red one, a green one, and a white one, all of which have already been sold, plus a silver one with the Italian flag down the side for the Lamborghini museum. So, even if you had more money than sense, you couldn't buy one if you tried. [Jalopnik]
