Lamborghini officially released it’s new pride and joy, the Veneno Roadster last week on an aircraft carrier off the coast of The United Arab Emirates.
The event was an interesting display of speed, power, and money, and a great send off for Lamborghini’s newest super car.
The new Veneno by Lambo doesn’t come cheep. It will set you back about 4.5 million dollars, that’s if you can even get one. A great new car, but first a little history on Lamborghini.
The history of ‘Lamborghini Automobili’ officially starts in 1963. Nevertheless, we must consider the far-off roots of this event, and they are the roots of Ferruccio Lamborghini. Born in 1916, this capable, impetuous, strong-willed Taurus was the leading character in the foundation of the company and the early phases of its extraordinary history.
By the time he decided to build a factory of luxury sports cars, Ferruccio was already a very wealthy man. In the period following World War II, he founded his tractor factory, which he launched with energy and determination, creating a major point of reference in this industry.
Other businesses followed, and he amassed his fortune at the perfect time, before his fiftieth birthday. By the early Sixties, Lamborghini was a powerful and successful man who knew exactly what he wanted, but when he said he would build a super sports car to compete with Ferrari, many people thought he was mad.
Constructing that kind of car was viewed as an unexplainable extravagance, a hazardous leap in the dark, and something that would squander his fortune without ever turning a profit.You can read the rest of the remarkable story of Lamborghini on their about page. Also be sure to look into the Lamborghini Museum.
Lamborghini sure knows how to make an entrance … a very showy, expensive entrance.
Last night, onboard the deck of the Italian naval aircraft carrier Nave Cavour off the coast of the United Arab Emirates, Lamborghini officially unveiled the $4.5-million Veneno Roadster. Although only nine examples will ever be built, Lambo apparently spared no expense.
“The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster was unveiled in the presence of His Excellency Giorgio Starace, Italian Ambassador to the UAE and the Admiral of High Seas Forces, Paolo Treu. Guests on board Nave Cavour enjoyed hospitality from chef Corrado Corti of Italy’s famous Hotel Splendido in Portofino, who flew in especially for the occasion,” bragged Lamborghini in a prepared statement.
