- Ultra-rare Lamborghini Veneno Coupe on show UK
- One of only four units ever assembled
- Previously only seen in the Lamborghini Museum
LONDON, England – One of the rarest Lamborghini sports cars in existence – one of only four ever assembled – will be in an upmarket showroom here in the British capital until January 9
HR Owen Lamborghini will have on it South Kensington showroom floor a performance-focused Veneno Coupe, described in a media release sent to The Corner as “a supercar spotter’s dream”.
SO UGLY IT’S BEAUTIFUL?
The car was originally launched back in 2013, based on the Lamborghini Aventador, as a special tribute to the Lamborghini brand on its 50th birthday and as such was retailed then for £3.6-million – the equivalent of about R61-million. However, in March 2016, a broker in Japan listed his Veneno on a German website for £8.8-million… the equivalent of R140-million.
What kind of investment is that? Even for a car as ugly (The Corner’s view, at least) as the Veneno.
The car now in London will, the dealer said, be the first Veneno to be featured in a main dealership in the UK. It had been on public display only at the Lamborghini Museum in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy, and at high-profile auto shows around the world.
Owens’ explained: “The Veneno’s ethos is all about being as light as possible to enhance performance with its exceptional aerodynamics making it feel like more of a race car than a road-legal supercar.
“It’s been optimised for high-speed corning stability to make it one of the world’s most thrilling cars to drive – not to mention one of the most striking in appearance.”
