LAMBORGHINI VENENO ‘ROADSTAR’

Lamborghini today unveiled the world’s most expensive car – a super-aggressive model costing a staggering £3.36 million.

The jaw-dropping Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is a limited edition hypercar which goes without a roof.

It has been designed by the Italian firm to drive like a race car while being entirely road legal – making it one of the most extreme vehicles ever built.

Lamborghini has fitted the Veneno Roadster with a 750bhp V12 engine which gives the topless motor a 0-62mph time of just 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 220mph.

The radical machine, made of lightweight carbon fibre, follows the hardtop version which was limited to just three and came with a £3 million price-tag.

But the convertible, of which nine will be built, will set back potential owners a cool £3.36 million.

This is more than ten times the price of the firm’s Aventador model while the same figure could buy 335 Ford Fiestas.

A statement from the Italian firm called the Veneno Roadster ‘one of the most exceptional super sports cars of all time’.

It added: ‘The Veneno Roadster is extreme and guarantees an intense driving experience – because open means truly open.

‘There is no roof, just a strong rollover bar for optimum safety. The design is focused on optimum aerodynamics and stability through fast corners — with handling akin to that of a racing prototype: ‘

Lamborghini claim every detail of the car’s body has been designed to boost downforce and minimalise drag in an attempt to optimise its handling on the road and track.
