    How exactly is this a 4.6 mil car? That's double of what a Veyron SS costs.

    This is yet another case of my **** is bigger than yours.

    I'd love to have the skinny German's job.

    But that means I would have to get me some 10k suits the 2.5k suits I never wear would not be good enough for the job. lmao

    best thing about this car is that the three new owners will ship them off to their secret lairs in Dubai and China and car guys will never have to look at it ever again !
    really its nothing more than just a silly version of a very well done car the aventador ..

    On The Lamborghini Veneno and the Masculinization of Supercar Design | The Chicane

    1. Great blog, for those into vintage racing and sports cars.

    2. Apt commentary on the current state of exotic car design:

    "Something has happened in the past 20 years of sportscar design. There’s nothing elegant about this Lamborghini. It looks cold and mechanical and dangerous. We’ve stopped caring about machines looking beautiful and settled for them looking angry or dangerous..."

    I think the overall shape is cool, my only hesitation would be the very Castriota-looking vertical headlights, which I dislike (on this and on all recent Ferraris).

    A $1,000,000 deposit has been allegedly put down to purchase one of the 3 by rapper "Birdman". How much I believe this, I don't know but given he is a well known blood gang member, if true I can guess he will be getting the red one. Time will tell!

    Looks like a rejected batmobile design. Speaking of which, the original just sold for $4.6 mil. Coincidence?

    I love it. It is a evolution of the Lambo design. So badass that a batman would be jealous.

    As for the price, it's a special three car vol, of course it has to be expensive.

    It does get the jump a bit on Ferrari's F150 launch. I had never even heard of this car before today, Lambo kept it pretty quiet (I'm sure any testing spots they probably thought it was a Sesto Elemento). It is wilder in design (judging from the nose shot Ferrari released) and likely 3x the price of the Ferrari.

    Isn't he the guy that showed a bunch of F cars on MTV's Cribs, claiming they were his, but they turned out to be rental/loaners?

    Meanwhile, there will be at least one Veneno coming to the US, belonging to a member over at El Power...

    I believe that was 50 Cent. Birdman actually has a crap load of money coming from people that he produces albums for like Lil Wayne because of Cash Money Records.

    Just look at the list of current and former artists: List of current Cash Money Records artists - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    List of former Cash Money Records artists - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Let's hope he destroys them all. :eek:

    Not a fan. Hideous styling, the only reason it'll sell (or should I say, have been sold out) is because there are only 3. I forsee one being sold to someone in Dubai. Money doesn't buy taste.

    I love the alien-styling on this car! It's Lambo's version of the Zonda R...it's pretty insane! One car is indeed USA bound...it'll be interesting to see where the other 2 wind up...

    This new Lambo and the LaFerrari are examples of what happens when form follows function. These hideous designs, sadly, were inevitable as the performance envelope has pushed top speeds beyond 225mph.

    Unfortunatley the Lamborghini effort looks to have been designed purely as a 'shock' tool to drum up publicity. The brief must have been just make it totally OTT forget what it looks like. In this respect compared to the Ferrari and Mclaren this product looks like the work of amateurs on a very tight deadline.

    It seems that Lamborghini has enough spares from the Aventador and of course clients with a lot of money but bad taste of design.. I would like to see Veneno stands by the new LaFerrari, McLaren P1, Huayra and of course Koenigsegg Hundra in a comparison test in a racing track. I don't see the reason that Lamborghini produced a car like this. I'm not talking about Sesto Elemento which is really a great car and needs respect..but Veneno. Weird thing...... It's the same thing that Lamborghini made with Reventon.

    Apparently it is all for the profit....

    Supposed quote from a Jalopnik article:
    (may not be accurate, but it does seem to apply...and it's funny!)


    McLaren - We've improved our aerodynamics to make the world's best super-car

    Ferrari - We've used our F1 experience to give the F70 KERS and other electronic assistance

    Porsche - We've made the perfect balance between internal combustion and electric motors

    Lamborghini - We've put fins & sh*t on there - and it looks awesome!

    :D

    PS: When did Lamborghini hire a 13 year old boy to head up their design department?

    At this price, I can think of a lot better things to buy.

    I like the modern design.

    A Veyron is a bargain, when compared to the asking price.

    Of course, it is exclusive.

    No manual transmission !

    I love how we've got one thread about our new car, with the yeas and the nays behaving nicely, but up in F-Land there's a dozen threads, each fighting over a different element of their new car, and people being banned over it.

    Awesome.
