Lamborghini just pulled off a neat trick at the Geneva Motor Show, unveiling a new $4 million supercar of which only three examples will be built—all of which have already been sold.
The Lamborghini Veneno is designed to celebrate the marque’s 50th anniversary, and its stats are suitably astounding for an extreme street-legal racer.
We’re talking 750 hp, 0 to 62 mph in 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 220 mph.
Made entirely of carbon-fiber reinforced polymer, the latest thing in lightweight construction tech, its looks may be considered a bit outlandish even by Lamborghini standards, but odds are if you do see one on the road, it’ll be nothing but a blur.
In keeping with the marque’s tradition, Veneno is the name of a legendary bull who killed a toreador in Spain in 1914.
It’s also Spanish for “poison”…
