The Ugliest Supercar Of All Time
March 6th, 2013 3:27 PM Share
When your offspring or young relatives present you with a poorly drawn picture of a car they made in kindergarten art class, the correct response for most normal human begins is to praise it effusively and hang it on the fridge so as not to crush their burgeoning self-esteem. Lamborghini went one step further. They put it into production.
The Veneno was apparently built to celebrate Lamborghini’s 50th anniversary and retails for a cool $4 million. Underneath, it’s similar to an Aventador; the 750 horsepower V12 and automated manual gearbox carry over. Only three examples of the Veneno will be made, doubtlessly destined for the Mall of the Emirates parking lot.

Is Lamborghini going front wheel drive or something? That front overhand his huge.
I this it's totally badass! It's half spaceship half batmobile. In a car that is the definition of excess, the design is completely appropriate. There nothing subtle about it.
I love it. Lamborghinis should be crazy, type A and unabashedly appealing to a 9 year old. If that BMW 42 wheel kid had written it as a Lambo, Lamborghina should have actually shown it at Geneva rather than BMW just giving a sketch. I love the Muira, but let's be honest: Since the Countach, Lambo's are not about being reserved. Buy a McLaren if you disagree.
Lamborghini. Single-handedly keeping the carbon fiber industry solvent. (I don't see what all the fuss is about, it's not ugly, simply over the top. Were it not for the Veneno, the supercar offerings would have been limited to a tarted up 458 on the Ferrari stand and the not-a-concept-anymore P1 on the McLaren stand. Good for you, Lambo, keep stirring that pot.)
