The $5.3 million topless Lamborghini Veneno

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.

Unveiled just this past March the 750 hp, AWD carbon fiber supercar was met with much acclaim, and criticism, both for its outlandish design (even for a Lamborghini) and its US $4.1 million price tag. While the point may be moot when talking about such astronomical prices, collectors willing to face the $1.2 million jump in cost for the convertible might find some consolation in the fact that topless models have historically retained value better that their hard topped counterparts over the long run.

According to Lamborghini, the Roadster will make 0-60 mph (96 km/h) in 2.9 seconds and achieve a top speed of of 355 km/h (220 mph), although wind noise and hair product competency could become problematic. Only nine topless Venenos will be produced, making it slightly less exclusive than the original which had a total run of three.
