With its sharp, angular lines and arrow-shaped front end, the Lamborghini Veneno
has always had a slightly military feel about it. So we probably shouldn't be too surprised that the Italian automaker chose the flight deck of the Italian naval aircraft carrier Nave Cavour for the public debut of the limited edition Roadster version this week in Abu Dhabi.
Ever since the release of Lamborghini’s limited edition $4.3 million Veneno
earlier this year, rumors of a topless version have been growing. This week Lamborghini turned rumor into reality with the announcement of its most expensive supercar to date – the $5.3 million Veneno roadster.
Italian supercar maker Lamborghini is celebrating its 50th anniversary
in 2013 and Gizmag recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Lamborghini's CEO Stephan Winkelmann and Design Director Filippo Perini for a fascinating insight into one of the automotive world's most exotic brands.
This year's Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance saw 260 distinguished collectible cars gathered on the 18th fairway of the famous links to celebrate the 63rd anniversary of the event. Nestled amongst this mouth-watering automotive array was the “concept lawn” – a new world order showcase of over twenty concepts cars and new production models including world and North American debuts. Gizmag was there to capture the best of what the lawn had to offer.
As part of Lamborghini’s 50th Anniversary celebrations the company has set aside some special editions for a select few. First off came the outrageous, fire spitting Veneno
. Given only three Venenos were made at US$4 million a piece, your disappointment in not acquiring one is understandable. But with the release of the Aventador LP 720-4 50° Anniversario, the company from Sant’Agata hopes to change your odds. Gizmag's Mike Hanlon was on hand to lay eyes and pixels upon the limited edition beast as revealed at the Shanghai Auto Show.
