On March 5, the Lamborghini Veneno made its first appearance in Switzerland at the Geneva Motor Show 2013. According to KPIC, the $3.9 million so-called supercar made almost exclusively of carbon fiber was revealed in a dramatic showing that put the spotlight on this stunning sports vehicle, making this automobile's debut trend online as soon as the car was seen for the first time by the masses.
And what's so special about this particular car.
Well, it's rare. Very rare. In fact, Lamborghini only made three cars of this type, and those three have already been sold. This luxury vehicle, which promises to be road ready and street legal, reportedly reaches speeds up to 220-miles-per-hour.
To be sure, the Veneno is an appropriate legacy to Automobili Lamborghini as the luxury car company celebrates 50 years in existence. As for the stats for this particular super sports car, the Veneno imitates the Aventador with 12 cylinders, a 6.5-liter engine coupled and a 7-speed ISR transmission.
Another feature includes all-wheel drive at all times, which gives some more grip to the road than any other kind of vehicle. And, of course, the Veneno is aerodynamic. In fact, Lamborghini has compared the front end to "a giant wing." The car goes from 0 to 60 in 2.8 seconds.
By way of background, Veneno means "legendary fighting bull" and hails back to celebrated matador, José Sánchez Rodríguez. He was gored to death by that bull in 1914.
That said, the Lamborghini Veneno debut at the Geneva Motor Show is already an icon even though the model named for the victorious bull who killed the matador about a century ago is only freshly on view. Obviously, though, this particular bull is ready to take on its prey, which, in this case, is the wide open road.
