Lamborghini: Forget Hybrids, We'll Just Make This Thing

March 6, 2013

Because I used to have a poster of a Countach (plus a Cindy Crawford one) on my wall like every other boy who grew up in the 80's, this is Lamborghini's recently unveiled Veneno, it's fastest and most powerful car to date. The Batmobile-looking land rocket is powered by a 750-horsepower V-12, does 0-60 in 2.8-seconds, costs $3.9-million, and they're only making four of them. And *jumps out of a cake* SURPRISE -- they've already all been spoken for. Just probably not by anybody I know.

Hit the jump for a bunch more shots of the dammit, I need richer and more powerful friends. Oh -- and some uglier ones too so I don't look so bad by comparison at the bar.

Thanks to C-Nasty, who's so nasty he once wiped a booger on the leather seat of a McLaren.

    Would be great in pure black as the next Batmobile. :)

  • Amazing car, though it is only for rich people but still i would love to ride this beast.

  • Closet Nerd

    id love to ride you
    ..... just gayin

  • Jadis

    green, white and red stripes? Made in Mexico? (JK)

  • TheeMacG

    If one is considering spending millions on a car, just wait till the Bugatti SuperVeyron comes out. A quad-turbocharged 8.0-Liter W-16 engine, 1,600 horsepower, Top speed of 288mph and 1-60mph in 1.8sec. Also, with Bugatti, no worries about changing your oil, Bugatti will fly an engineer from France to service the car.

    New Batmobile?

  • dougfunnay

    is this marketed to 8 year old billionaires? it looks like a hot wheels toy

    i guess its true that money cant buy you class

  • Deksam

    Hey! The tail fin is finally back! I think this car is cool looking but looks very fragile, and the back looks over done. The designers are watching too much Transformers.

  • ShartInYourJacuzzi

    meh.

  • SoldierZach

    Mother of God.

  • abis866i

    Now that I read this, I eant to dump mt Nissan Versa and buy it..

  • This would transform into a Decepticon for sure.

  • This_Update_Sucks

    That was funny.

  • Toastrider

    That was pretty much my reaction to it too: for four million, that car better turn into a giant robot or power armor or something.

  • $18922249

    Looks like shit. Reminds me of another great vehicle design...

  • TyDurd

    I've always like the design choices made by Lamborghini. While their designs seem extreme at unveiling, they usually end up growing on people. The only thing that pops out at me with the Veneno, and makes me tilt my head are the obtuse looking wheel wells.

  • Conrado Parra

    why does it have the Mexican flag on the side?

  • JJtoob

    Haha, I think there is only one Mexican super sports car, and it's not this one.

  • Marcus

    ...you mean the Italian flag?

  • You know, the car would look really badass in a Bond movie, but frankly I find it vulgar from a design point of view.

    OK, we get they wanted to make the most expensive car in the world. But that doesn't mean you need to fill it with so many "Hey, look at me!" features.

  • JJtoob

    They are meant for a market of people who are looking exactly for that feature. There are rich people out there who don't really care what they drive (I knew at least one), but there are a lot of other rich people who are just trying to up one their friends. This was perfect marketing if they aimed at them, because not only is the car expensive (this is important to them), there will only be four of them, and it looks distracting as hell.

  • Marcus

    I'm pretty sure they sat down and started off the brainstorm with: Let's make this scream "Hey, look at me!". This isn't a Lambo for people with refined taste and modest tendencies; it's a Lambo for people who looove the attention their toys get.
