Default Lamborghini Veneno Roadster for INR 32.6 crores!

Just came across this article featured by BBC Top Gear which says that each of the 9 Veneno Roadster's planned to be built will retail for approximately a cool INR 32.6 crore a piece.

Quote:
As part of its ongoing 50th anniversary celebrations, and of course, its ongoing commitment to lunacy, Lamborghini has revealed a limited edition open-topped supercar. It's called the Veneno Roadster, and it encapsulates the brand most succinctly.

As with the coupe - revealed at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year - it's based on the Lamborghini Aventador, swathed in the same carbon fibre plague doctor outfit as before, though here there's no roof. Literally, no roof - it's a permanent roadster, that Lamborghini tells us "guarantees an intense driving experience." All you get is a rollover bar and a pat on the back.

All the better then, to listen to that 740bhp 6.5-litre V12 engine nestled right behind the driver and passenger, hooked up to a sequential manual gearbox and permanent all-wheel-drive. There's the Aventador's pushrod suspension and horizontal spring/damper units, which all add up to a 0-100kph time of 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 354kph. Whichever way you look at it, that's fruity.

And you will look at it, because it's mad. ‘Veneno' was the name of a famous bull (of course) that gorged a matador to death back in 1914, and this roadster is probably as good a homage to that as you'll find. That whopping front end, the huge side air intakes, the wide track, the sheer pointiness of the thing and that adjustable racing prototype wing - it's like a Lamborghini Le Mans prototype that's scoffed one too many disco biscuits.

Sure, it's all there for functional aero, and the CFRP monocoque and body parts are cutting edge, here helping to keep the weight down to just 1,490kg (that's dry, without any fluids or humans on board). In fact, carbon fibre adorns the interior too.

It is, however, a little less exclusive than the coupe Veneno. Lamborghini tells us nine are being planned (as opposed to three coupes), and while this ‘Rosso Veneno' colour is unique for the roadster, you can spec any shade you want. Each one will cost around Rs 32.6 crore.

Must say, looks other-worldly.

But, 32.6 Crore! EDIT: This is without the Import Duties! So this thing will cost 70 Crore if bought in India? "A mere $600,000 price premium over the standard Veneno for the lack of a roof." according to driving.ca And ALWAYS an open roof? Guess I'll never be able to drive one even if I get it here in Bangalore seeing as to how it rains so unexpectedly.


Here are some pictures of the car.

Oh no, 9 is just way too many!

Like they Veneno Coupe, they should've kept it at a very exclusive 3 or less.

Though, as is the case with the hyper exclusive Lambos, I'm sure all cars would've been sold out by now as well. So 9 is just the number of people who badly wanted a Veneno and settled for a Roadster instead

This car looks like it came out of transformer movie or just made for it.

Just out of my imagination.

Had we not known that this is from lamborghini themselves, the overly done rear would have landed this in the weird and wacky threads.

I think this is the ugliest looking Lamborghini. Period. The rear gives the impression that the designers were playing tetris with lego blocks while drawing this. And those rims are so so bad!

32.6 crore rupees for this? Saddens one to realize how money has lost it's value over time!
