Lamborghini Veneno Roadster from CES 2014

At the 2014 CES Monster® proudly presented the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster as they created the one of a kind audio system for this multi-million dollar limited edition super exotic from Sant'Agata.
The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster has been unveiled a few months ago as the open top evolution of the extremely impressive Veneno LP750-4 shown in Geneva back in 2013, only three units of the original Veneno were built and it sold out even before the public could admire it on the Automobili Lamborghini SpA stand at the 2013 Geneva Auto Show ... the show car would actually remain at the factory while three additional units were built for customers, two in the United States and one for a client in the Middle East.
The red metallic finished Lamborghini Veneno Roadster has been used as a demo car by the factory, first shown in a very impressive private house in the United States, later on the official World Premierehappened on top of an Italian aircraft carrier in the port of Abu Dhabi ... and now this very rare Bull showed up at the CES 2014 in Las Vegas.
The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster will have a limited production of only nine units, each priced at USD 4,500,000. The show car is finished in a new shade called Rosso Veneno, but customers are allowed to order their own shade on, however one item on the red demo car comes with a specific fitment: a high end audio system from renowned Monster®.
Fast forward to late October 2013 ... an official press release gets send out and official press photos (well, high end 3D renders in fact) get published all over the internet ... three photos were all that was available initially, but later on a few more images got published on the official Lamborghini press site depicting a bright red metallic, totally roofless Lamborghini Veneno.
Some figures were already known from the interview Mr Winkelmann gave mid-August ... only nine Veneno Roadster will be built during 2014, each priced at €3,300,000 (about USD 4,500,000) they will use the same engine as the original Veneno, a 6.5 Liter V12 with 750 hp that will offer an acceleration from 0 to 100 Km/h in 2.9 seconds and keeps going up to a top speed of 355 Km/h (221 Mph).

Still four wheel drive like the Aventador and the Veneno before, a single clutch, ultra-fast ISR gearbox inside a race style chassis and suspension setup offers an amazing experience behind the steering wheels of what Lamborghini calls their 'street legal racing prototype'.
The new Lamborghini Veneno Roadster LP750-4 is the open-top version of the faboulous Veneno revealed at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. It has no roof and the carbon-fibre monocoque has been optimized to keep the coupé stiffness. Under the hood is the V12 engine with 750 HP that powers also the Aventador, but the output has been increased fron 700 to 750 HP.
The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster LP750-4 weights just 1.490 kg, a mass that allows this incredible supercar to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (0-63 mph) in just 2,9 seconds and to reach a maximum speed of 355 km/h. It will be produced in only 9 units. Each will cost 3,3 millions euro excluding taxes.
