The 2014 Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is one of the most exclusive cars in the world, with a production run of just nine units and a price tag of $4.5 million.

Lamborghini says the Veneno Roadster has no roof — not even a fabric top. “There is no roof, just a strong rollover bar for optimum safety,” said Lamborghini in a statement. “The design is focused on optimum aerodynamics and stability through fast corners — with handling akin to that of a racing prototype.” It is “fully road legal,” said the Italian automaker. The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is based on the Lamborghini Aventador Roadster, but it’s about ten times more expensive. The 2013 Lamborghini Aventador LP700 Roadster starts at $444,595, including a $2,995 destination charge. The Lamborghini Veneno debuted at the 2013 Geneva Auto Show in celebration of the brand’s 50th anniversary. Like the hardtop version, the Veneno Roadster gets a 6.5-liter V12 engine that churns out 750 horsepower. The engine is mated to a seven-speed “IRS” transmission. The car features permanent all-wheel drive with a pushrod suspension. The roadster version has a top speed of 221 mph. Many of the Veneno Roadster’s exterior body panels are shared with the hardtop model. A premium has been put on aerodynamics. In fact, Lamborghini says “the front end works as a large aerodynamic wing.” Edmunds says: Lamborghini built just three examples of the Veneno and buyers were not deterred by the car’s $3.9 million sticker price. Expect the same with the drop-top version.
