A very rare exotic sportscar has emerged on the used market. It’s a Lamborghini Veneno, a model that was produced by the Italian automaker for a very short time earlier in the decade.
The Veneno was Lamborghini’s most acute statement at the time of its release, in 2013—long before the Centenario came along. Only thirteen examples of the Veneno coupe and roadster were produced during the car’s production period. Naturally, it was priced accordingly: you needed to plunk down $4 million to drive away in one of the street-legal racers when new.
Of the thirteen examples, only five were coupes, and only three of them were ever earmarked for sale. So a used price for such a collectible car might be high. For this extremely low-mileage example, it’s about $9.5 million. The car may be the same example that came up for sale in the late winter of 2016, when it was offered at around $11 million. It’s extremely likely, as both were offered for sale by a German company, and the other two, it is believed, reside in America.
In spirit, the Veneno was a souped-up Aventador. It looked even more dramatic, and its tuned 6.5L V12 could produce 740 HP, enough to propel the coupe to 60 in 2.8 seconds, and to a top speed of 221 MPH.
The Veneno coupe may be the rarest of any Lamborghini model variation produced in this century. Whether or not that will help its seller more than double their investment is the question.
