Of all the world’s supercar makers, none stretch the idea of an ultimate sports machine quite so far as Lamborghini. For its 50th anniversary, the Italian automaker has created its most bizarre car yet: Meet the Veneno, a $4 million alien craft that will be assembled for only three buyers who’ve already put down their deposits — and being sold out before it goes into production is only a hint of the Veneno’s speed.
Thanks to Internet leaks, we can say the car was built from the Aventador chassis, and uses a version of the 6.5-liter V-12 linked to a 7-speed automated manual transmission, good for a top speed of 220 mph. The three copies Lamborghini plans to build will have red, white, or green touches to match the Italian flag. We’ll have more details and photos to share ahead of the Geneva Motor Show soon.
