Meet the open-top version of Lambo's Veneno that will cost a staggering 440 million baht in Thailand
Holy faeces! Who's gonna buy it?
Probably those who have missed out on the hard-top version of the Lamborghini Veneno, of which only three have been made for the entire planet.
What you see here is the open-top version of Veneno. Depending on demand, no more than nine units will be made, according to the suits in Sant'Agata. The Veneno Roadster costs 3.3 million, which translates into around 440 million baht in Thailand including tax. The roofed sibling is slightly cheaper at 385 million.
Both Venenos are highlighted with carbon fibre body construction and incisive surfaces to aid aerodynamics. The basic difference between the two is that the Roadster hasn't got a roof _ not even as an option.
How much damage will be made to my face?
Quite a lot by standards of normal cars, but not to a large extent within Lambo's game.
Compared to the 700hp Aventador Roadster donor vehicle, the Veneno has 50hp more derived from the same 6.5-litre V12 engine to slash the 0-100kph from 3.0sec to 2.9 and to improve top speed from 350 to 355kph. And at 1,490kg, the Veneno is 135kg lighter.
Hmm . . . isn't the regular Veneno quicker?
Despite using the same engine, seven-speed automated manual gearbox and all-wheel-drive hardware as the Veneno Roadster, the roofed version is a tenth of second quicker in that acceleration time.
That's probably because it is lighter by 40kg. Despite having no roof, the Veneno Roadster needs structural reinforcements for the body and the windscreen.
Yeah, you could say that Lamborghini really has courage to charge such a premium _ and total price _ for the Veneno Roadster. And the same could be said to potential buyers who are most likely to hang up such a car on the wall of their living room.
Veneno Roadster goes from 0-100kph in 2.9sec.
